Dr.F: Buh?

April Fools Alters Reality?

So it's National The Internet Becomes Mostly Useless Day. There's one site where I'm reliably amused by the fool posts: ThinkGeek.

This year they posted a Tauntaun sleeping bag as one of their items. Check it out! Even has intestine-patterned lining fabric. Nice.

What's really funny is that they've updated it with a notice: Due to an overwhelming tsunami of requests from YOU THE PEOPLE, we have decided to TRY and bring this to life. We have no clue if the suits at Lucasfilms will grant little ThinkGeek a license

It appears (this is still April 1st) that they've got enough serious inquiries that they're going to attempt to bring it to life. I just think that's wonderfully goofy! (Yeah, I'd consider getting Timothy one... what?)

So now I'm just waiting for the notice that the coverage of furry by a UK teen girls' mag was also an April Fools joke. I mean, this has to be a joke, right? ...Guys? Right?
