IT’S ADDLEPATED APRIL AGAIN! -- Or, time for feather-brained folk to have some fun! --
**Compiled by Leady Beatrice Blitterlees and edited by Lord Earl Craboon
April is one of those months that most pithy people would rather forget. After all, it’s only month that starts off on a “foolish footing”.
The good news is that fops, (who more often than not put their foot in their mouths as opposed to someone else’s), have only one day a year to celebrate folly of mankind.
The bad news is that anyone who adores linear thinking will be in for a rough ride this month.
Soothsayers usually have fun with April because they often predict that sky will fall without warning, (or at a minimum rain cats and dogs).
As if that’s not enough, some bloke with precious little to do decided it was high time to turn all clocks backwards (for Daylight Savings Time).
So, if you’re looking for an excuse to engage in a bit of eclectic entertainment, you hit right month of quintessentially quirky things to do.
