    Depends on how many extra pages they wanted to deal with. It's a fine line between a joke and confusing people into thinking they're bugged.

    Don't you remember how a couple years in a row we were given inedible cakes for occasions and the dang things piled up in folks' homes and everyone complained ad nausium? No one wanted to throw them out but they served no purpose whatsoever. I've still got chests of them taking lockdowns in two homes.

    I think it's pretty funny. [​IMG]

  17. It is very funny to me. When the 10th came and no cake I was really ticked, and sad. This is either meant in fun or its a lot of salt!

    Maybe too we can turn them in? For an actual cake? heh

    Right, so now we have to guess WHO ATE ALL THE CAKES!?
    And can we redeem the IOU?

    i vote it was Leurocian. with the baby due soon and him being so busy he just took them home as his wife was craving cake . We just have to see if he brings them back so we can get him to turn on a exchange system

    Guest Guest

    Leurocian, eh? Hmm...
    He takes cakes to wife...
    wife has baby...

    all he's got to exchange for them is...
    ...BABY! OMGOMG NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    This was a triumph.
    I'm making a note here: huge success.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

    Aperture science.
    We do what we must because we can.
    For the good of all of us
    Except the ones who are dead.

    But there's no sense crying over every mistake
    You just keep on trying till you run out of cake
    And the science gets done and you make a neat gun
    For the people who are still alive.

    I'm not even angry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though you broke my heart and killed me.
    And tore me to pieces.
    And threw every piece into a fire.
    And as they burned it hurt because
    I was so happy for you.

    Now these points of data make a beautiful line
    And we're out of beta we're releasing on time.
    So I'm glad I got burned think of all the things we learned
    For the people who are still alive

    Go ahead and leave me.
    I think I prefer to stay inside.
    Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
    Maybe Black Mesa -
    That was a joke. Haha. Fat chance.
    Anyway, this cake is great:
    It's so delicious and moist.

    Look at me still talking when there's science to do.
    When I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you.
    I've experiments to run there is research to be done
    On the people who are still alive

    And believe me I am still alive.
    I'm doing science and I'm still alive.
    I feel fantastic and I'm still alive.
    While you're dying I'll be still alive.
    And when you're dead I will be still alive.

    **Side note: This is playing on my iTunes =P**

    Do you have any idea what you've done?

    Takes me *days* to get that out of my head once I've seen/read it!

    *goes off to play it on MP3 player*

    Well.. you already put it in my head, might as well play it again! =P

    I can't believe so many people in this thread are so uptight! *Shakes Head*

    Thank you, Devs! I laughed my arse off, and then managed to turn around and prank all my friends by telling them that you would get a reward by doing totally stupid things to the cards! *Snickerfits*

    The IOU Cards and Boxes Is In Interesting Items. So Interesting That People Are Throwing Them Away. Wouldn't It Be Funny If The Real April Fools Joke Was That They Are Going To Be Part Of The Turn In And Everyone Threw Them Away. LOL

    Truthfully... really enjoyed the gift... but........

    Knowing the running theme lately I was hesitant to unwrap it at first... I made sure I was next to a healer in the event that it was an insta kill box [​IMG]

    Just figured Draconi would have the box explode and my character is engulfed in flames or some other random effect for the day [​IMG]

    Have Fun!!!
