The prank is twofold, being that it exists and that we just did unpaid work to find bugs on Newgrounds. TrollTom.

I don't think you quite understand what the term "troll" means..

bahahahaha.
never throught of that one Tom. i'll keep it im mind for work next year
gonna go back to rating the vids and games now that this is done. i don't really
give a f**k about the money. but i certainly wouldn't want to hold
you responisble for it. i sure hope this websige doesn't go Titanic. it's the only reason i get
up in the morning most days.
love you Tom!

also this is totally unrelated but i just wanted to say. i spend a lot of time f**king around with the search box. i freaking love this thing. over time i've typed in incresignly more ridiculous garbage into it in the search for results.

by far the best thing that ever happened was the day i typed in The Most Epic Story Ever (of all time).
Tom Fulp's Biography came up. :)
i'll continue my epic search for more weird s**t.

sincerely DARKstar!

That's ridiculous. You can't make a joke so subtle nobody finds it.

Couldn't you have at least switched the logo or font colors this year? I mean, I enjoyed last year's China thing (being chinese and all), but this year just stinks of laziness.

Just kidding. I know you guys are probably too busy with the redesign... right? ;)

TOM (Thats your name right?).....

Well I'm sorry to hear that you're wasting so much talent..like you THINK you have. Certainly I can give you credit for having a brain and actually having some thought (and let me emphasize they are just thoughts!!)....BUT unfortunetly...you're a waste. No offence other then what you choose to spend your time on...like making a page about Fake Contests is quite rude to us level-headed people. Now I do realize as I make a statement like that... its kind of pointless because to refer to you as NOT being level headed..IS A GIVEN!!!

I do also realize that you state how you feel and you design a page like this one just for attention and feedback. YOU couldn't use your gifts (and I'm referring to your typing ability and ability to make a sentence....ONLY!!!! ...UNDERSTAND....I haven't been able to find verification that you have any intelligence what so ever...ESPECIALLY Positive intelligence!!!) I would like to take this opportunity to tell you what it is like to HAVE wisdom....you see....YOU DON'T HAVE WISDOM .....KID!!! (YOU'RE only 25....I can't believe you think like this!!!). Incase you DON'T know what WISE means (Its APPARENT YOU DON'T!!!)....I think I'll tell you.... WISE: Is ONE POSSESSING GREAT KNOWLEDGE and intelligence (you're lacking both!!!) also....Having the ability to make a RIGHT decision or judgment (of a decision, judgment, or ACTION) resulting from the use of this ability. YOU don't HAVE any of this ability!!! WHAT YOU ARE IS A WISEACRE (a man who FOOLISHLY PRETENDS to have great knowledge).

My suggestion to you is to spend less time PLAYING on the computer and making silly pages like this and use what (little) you know.....to actually benefit YOU and MAYBE someone or SOMETHING else!!! You're wasting so much time trying to get people upset, bothered, or maybe even agreeing with you that so much of your time is countless!! That is of NO concern to you though...right??? IF so....your ignorant to think you're going to actually BE SOMETHING!! (keep in mind that you certainly can be whatever you want...but remember....you can be as BAD as you like...but YOU WON'T win the race!!!!)

You claim to plan to be smart, intelligent, AND wise.....and you're supposed to be raising a family, and become.....WHAT...(I have to ask)???? HOW come you are here WASTING important time??? If you TRUELY want to be smart...CHANGE your way of thinking. SMART...IS being positive...and productive...in whatever you choose. As you appear to be.....your NOT smart...and thats really OK ...though......JUST stay the hell away from.....US POOR GULLIBLE NEWGROUNDERS!!! Other then that....do whatever you like!!!

I'm sorry I can't go on.....I truely regret because my thoughts of you are unfortunetly ENDLESS... you're like a BAD DREAM!!! I can go on a long time trying to HELP you understand..BUT I KNOW its useless!! SO GOODBYE!!
GOD HELP YOUR PARENTS!!!
AND GOOD LUCK!!!
BYE
Mister Ratburn

Haha, I'm late to the game, but I felt the need to reply to you, my good sir. First off, Tom may have tricked someone like you who was easily set to anger because your own intelligence is fairly low (found just a few - sorry that was a lie- a lot of errors in your own sentences). But to be honest a good lot of us just shrugged this off and continued on our way. The fact that Tom is making money from a website he created for fun back when he was younger and that you're not making money off something you did for laughs should mean he's done more than you. Luck or no luck, he's still done it.

By the way guy, noticed you're still level 1. Are you an alternate account for some bigger account that doesn't have the testicular fortitude to come forth and insult Tom face-to-face? Or maybe you're just terribly lazy and only show up at important moments.

Another hit at your intelligence, I apologize greatly, you do realize typing a sentence LIKE this is INCORRECT, right??? I mean HONESTLY you have words in caps that shouldn't be, and more question marks than a 4chan page. Offense is not spelled 'offence', 'you're' is not spelled 'your', 'thats' needs to be done like this: 'that's'.

I could go on about this all day, too many errors, if I sat here to correct them all it'd be the same as you trying to tell Tom something, so I'll end with this. Your post was no joke, you meant what you said, so should you try to return, you won't be able to use those as shields. And again - yeah- I know I'm late to the game on this one, blame school work otherwise I'd have torn into him sooner.


This is a highly ineffective signature, as I only had a few short spaces to type something here, also I was in a rush to type it as I'm currently arm wrestling Grizzlies.

I was one of the people who took one look at the "april fools challenge" and thought it was a lie.
April Fools is something that is suppose to make you feel like a fool, a prank that makes you feel stupid. How the hell would finding something hidden on the site be a prank? How would a subtle change on the site for a $250 reward have anything to do with what April Fools is suppose to be about?

Of course as someone mentioned before the 1% of me that was curious as to whether or not there was something changed nagged me but i figured I'd find out if that was the case after it was found.

Good April Fools, masterfully done.
Truly, despite all the whining haters, this was what April Fools is all about.
