So on April 1, as is my custom each year, I announced my conversion to a boutique religion, just to see who was awake. This year it was Scientology. To my immense satisfaction, a reader writes the following series of replies in the comboxes:

I’m speechless.

And now I’m rofling.

You’re quite the sucker, aren’t you? You’re almost ASKING to be scammed out of everything you own. Have fun, sucker.


I’m speechless.

And now I’m rofling.

I thought you were trolling me!

You’re quite the sucker, aren’t you? You’re almost ASKING to be scammed out of everything you own. One of L. Ron Hubbard’s most famous quotes was this: “If you really want to make a lot of money, don’t start a business, start a religion!” Why do you think auditing costs so much? Why do you think you’re now donating all of your property to the Church of Scientology?

Have fun, sucker.


AAAAWWWWW DAMMIT! He posted this on April 1st! I thought I was really making fun of someone for being a scientologist…


And I posted the same damn think twice. I’m ashamed! Don’t look at me!

Tee, as they say, hee.

    I dunno–that grainy video of you jumping up and down on the couch during that Dr. Phil interview was awfully convincing.

  • Stu

    So you aren’t a scientologist?

    Hey, your reader shouldn’t feel so bad. BOTH William Shatner and George Takei got me with their April 1st posts that J.J. Abrams hired them to be in the next Star Wars film. Both…of…them. Don’t look at me either…

    Apparently a friend is getting a baby shower thanks to her April fools day prank. I’m not going to spoil it.

      heh, Psy, you wouldn’t happen to be in CT would you because my wife and I pulled a good old fashion “post an early ultrasound picture” on April 1st prank.

        I’m in Washington and she posted it on Facebook, so far the suprize baby shower is a go but I’m not sure of the date but I’ll wait to see if they figure it out.
