Tom-
What I love the best:

1) The April Fool's gags are right on time
2) That the joke itself is so obvious
3) You play up the obviousness with cheesy logos and titles

I have to say I love it!

This should be a Newgrounds tradition each year---change the logo and attempt to write a convincing post. The post itself is funny since you poke fun at April Fool's day gags. Man, what a great site!! :)

LOL @ April Fools joke. Good work, Tom. Made me chuckle and all, and I'm sure the creator of Numa Numa is enjoy this as well.

I'll admit, though, it still can't hold a candle to McNewGrounds. That was priceless!

Perhaps the joke is a little too obvious! Perhaps the real joke is that it's all true!

It'd be really funny if Tom went ahead and decided to actually change the entire site, and all of you fools who said it was just a joke were proven wrong.

Are you seriously going to change the site from Newgrounds to NumaGrounds, to attract an older audience. I was attracted to Newgrounds because of the against the grain feel it has to it. If you change it. It won't be the same and what for a couple more dollars from your sponsors, it all has to do with money in the end I guess.

A valiant effort. I think the '$20 for frontpage' thing is an even better one.

this is not rite...im all for change and stuff and i understand wat ur trying to do...but i am personaly a great dispiser of the numa numa dance, i meen wats so funny about it?
lim an artest thats what i do i animate i draw wat ever u no, but wat did gary do? he sang alon g to a song and danced and made a fool of himself. Dont get me wrong here i dont think theres anything wrong with change but y to this?? iv basicly grew up with newgrounds and only resently discovered all that there is: flash portal, audio portal etc...and i dont want it to change
i no i wont lose those things but the numa numa dance isnt a reason to go and change newgrounds. But im sure me saying this wont do anything so wats the point rite? I just wanted to get my opinion heard.

Oh please. This has to be one of the worst april fools jokes ever.
Some webmasters spend the days before the 1st of april reworking the entire design for a credible joke and you just put up a 10-minute photoshop and a BBS post.
Way to go, man.

If you get enough hate mail for this (as im sure you WILL), Please change the site name back to newgrounds and bring back the good old tank logo. I mean, taking numa numa to THIS level is just sick.
