You know, I’d say I hate April Fools Day, but then I’d be a hypocrite. We, at Nerd Bastards, always get in on the fun. Last year, we reported that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg bought the rights to Firefly, and would be reviving the show. Today, we featured an ADULT LINK and duped folks into thinking Matt Smith was leaving Doctor Who. Real stinkers, ain’t we? It’s all in good fun when you’re the joker, but not so much when you’ve realized you’ve been trolled. I myself, got duped twice today. Motherfuck!
When I woke up this morning, I forgot what day it was. Checking my feed, I saw a headline on ScreenRant announcing Chappell Show Season 4 on Comedy Central with original cast returning. I shot tea from my nose, I was so shocked. Moments later, I realized I got trolled and cursed the sky with furious anger.
The second incident happened just moments ago, when I saw on multiple sites, that Bryan Singer had announced on his Twitter account that Lady Gaga had joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past as Dazzler. I, of course, was skeptical at first. I got sold, however, on Variety‘s Justin Kroll confirmation of the story. With a thumbs up by Variety, bloggers everywhere where cannibalizing the story, including myself. And, to be honest, I wanted it to be true. Say what you want about Lady Gaga, but Bad Romance is catchy as hell.
Just as I was about to report the shocking news, the majority of sites where updating their articles. Apparently, Lady Gaga’s casting in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is an April Fool’s joke, says her agency.
Alright, so that’s it then, a zinger by Singer. Good one. Now, can we be done with this day. My patience has been shot to zero.
