No Fooling Around
I hate April Fool’s Day. Practical jokes have always struck me as unnecessarily nasty and mean-spirited, largely because I’m a sucker for them. The offer GMail made last year to print out any email thread you wanted for posterity? Sounded like a good idea to me.
Therefore, I’ve been especially careful as I read blogs and news today. But, I’ve still had a hard time differentiating between what is real and what’s a hoax. See if you do any better than me after the jump.
1. Hillary Clinton compared herself to Rocky. Who, as you may remember, lost the big fight. (Spoiler alert!)
2. Gawker Media sold feminist site Jezebel to Conde Nast, one of the site’s frequent targets.
3. Gigantic baby heads were set up outside the entrance to the MFA.
4. A Fenway Park bartender wants the Red Sox players to support his lawsuit.
5. Dunkin Donuts bought City Hall Plaza for $51.2 million.
6. A popular email service now allows you to send an email whenever you want.
For the answers, highlight between here. . . 1. True, 2. False, 3. True, 4. True, 5. False, 6. Come on. Not even I’m that gullible. False. and here.
