Naturally,repparttar fools -- those who didn’t celebraterepparttar 118066 New Year in January but liked a lot of hoopla to markrepparttar 118067 birth of spring -- gotrepparttar 118068 short end ofrepparttar 118069 stick. But pucks (and for that matter pixies) should never be under-estimated.

January, June or whatever...what's a mundane month or two either way among friends? People, people, people ...it's time to let go of all that linear thinking and cogitate outsiderepparttar 118070 box or color beyondrepparttar 118071 lines for pity's sake!!

Which reminds me, who else but a fool can be relied upon to rush in where wise men never go? Byrepparttar 118072 way, Mars has gone retrograde so don’t act on that tip about a gold scheme inrepparttar 118073 jungles of Indonesia …unless of course you dream of playing with funny money in a place called “Fool’s Paradise”!

Poppycock problems always demand super-sized solutions, so fools got down to business. Turning tables on twits and twerps, not to mention Tweedledees & Tweedledums, seemed like good idea atrepparttar 118074 time.

And, thanks to those playful pranks on “All Fools Day”, tickling funnybones is infinitely more entertaining than snapping chicken (wish)bones.

So toss your troubles inrepparttar 118075 trashcan, face down your fear making a fool of yourself in public, and start handing out your own "frequent featherbrain" or "frequent flubber” cards!

After all, what better way to honor our "Inner Fool" thanrepparttar 118076 gift of glee. So get out there and enjoy a lick of laughter, a jolt of joy, or maybe a taste of titillation at least one day a year!
