In celebration of April Fool's Day I shared a true anecdote over at Monkey Goggles that I experienced while designing a catalog for the S.S. Adams prank and magic company- Feel free to check it out!

Now I want to see the animated film short of this story! Funny stuff!!

C S Adams said...

This may be the first ever myrmecological practical joke ever performed in recorded history!

Jon Huckeby said...

This is truly a funny story! Thanks for sharing it here Kirk!

Nice article, Kirk. It's about time someone stuck it to the ants!

"Although I for one welcome our new insect overlords."

Megan said...

Kirk, you truly have a way with words. Thanks for the great and hilarious story!

Only occasionally do blog posts make me laugh out loud. Your anecdote did, and I'm grateful!

(Now I'm imagining Edmund Gwynne and James Arness pranking the gi-ants of THEM!)

Hey Kirk,

Just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I enjoy your blog and website so much that I have featured them over on my blog.


p.s. Tom J sent me your way. I used to work with him at YB.

Dave said...

Great little post. I'd never even considered what goes into making a good prank.

I can emphasise about the ants, my house has become overrun now the sun is back out!

Holy Cow! Kirk are you OK? We havent heard from you in eons......

Kirk D. said...

three months later I'll respond to these historic comments...

Todd- Ha, I'd love to see that too. Maybe someone will option the article for a film.

C S Adams- Brilliant! I wish I had known that word before I wrote the article!

Jon- That means a lot since it's at least the third time you've heard it.

blalock- I just heard that the combined weight of all the ants in the world is equal to people. Ant overlords indeed.

Megan- thanks so much for the encouragement!

designer t-shirts- Thanks! (unless you're spam)

Max- that is really great to hear. I'm honored. thanks!

Pixie- thanks so much, I look forward to checking out your blog too.

Dave- my prank seems to have made the ant situation worse around here. They are trying to have revenge this year.


Mr. Stranger- Thank you! hopefully there will be more of it to read soon.

Anonymous- Thanks for noticing my absence! It's been WAY too long and hopefully I'll be back at it soon. This is what happens when a guy's wife breaks her ankle.

Looks like I just missed you. Got a couple of personal questions for ya :)
1. Are you married?
2. If not will you marry me?
3. If you are married, do you know someone who is just like you I could marry?
4. Do you have a facebook?

You are awesome!
:) thanks

Kirk D. said...

Wow, the new facebook marketing campaign is getting really aggressive.

Gen- I'm very flattered and very married. But if I ever start a waiting list I'll let you know. Thanks for your encouraging words and I'm glad you're enjoying the blog!

Kirk D. said...

Oh, and I have successfully avoided Facebook thus far.
