Fool me once . . .

There once was a Druid named Dubh Súile

As my muse, he is sometimes cruel.

He was once a blonde

But of that he’s not fond –

At least I did not dress him in tulle.

D: Seriously, A?

A: April Fools?

D: You are impossible.

A: Yes. Yes, I am. Cheers, D!

April Fools Roundup

A: Our very favorite Dilettante, Helena Hann-Basquiat, finally has a name for the Bayou Bonhomme Serial! And you know what? Click over to Helena’s site anyway, because her book, Memoirs of a Dilettante, Volume One is now available to buy! Woo hoo!

D: And in slightly more sedate news, Interesting Literature has a True-or-False April Fool’s Literary Quiz.

dejagoogleA: Google is famous for it’s April Fools jokes, and though I saw this yesterday, the Shelfie (among others) was pretty bizarre. But this one was weirder – only because I’m not sure it was a joke: Deja Google. Real or not, I was amused.

D: Why’s that?

A: Apparently, Google-a-Day is powered by a wormhole.

D: Nice, Google.

A: Indeed. And last, but certainly not least, Leonard Nimoy has recorded the end-credit song for the third Hobbit movie, There and Back Again.  Just in case you don’t want to click over, here is the video:

D: That was a joke, right?

A: Yeah – that’s why it’s called the April Fool’s Roundup and not the Oh-So-Serious News at 11.

D: A simple ‘yes’ would have sufficed.

A: Perhaps. Of course, this video was not a joke – someone put it together back in 2012. And the single is available on iTunes.

D : I could have done without “Scroto Baggins”

A: I don’t know what you’re talking about, D. I thought that was awesome.

D: You would.

A: So did The Boy.

D: I can see you’ve been a bad influence on the child.

A: Okay, okay- how about a music video incorporating the original song and the original animated Hobbit movie?

D: Only marginally better.

A: Oh, come on, you have to admit – it’s catchy.

D: (Humming absently) Bilbo-Bilbo!

A: Ha! I knew it!

D: Uh-oh, I mean – um–

A: No way you’re getting out of this one, D.

D: Oh, yes there is – April Fools!

A: (Eye roll) Nice try, Druid.

D: And with that, we will bid you all a fond farewell – before A decides to add any more ridiculousness to the menagerie she has collected here.

A: Goodnight, everyone!

      1. It is really tough – the ones on the OneRing.Net were pretty good, though – I mean, you knew they were a joke (or hoped), but they had just enough that you had to look elsewhere just to make sure!
