It's becoming harder and harder to pull a good April Fool's Day prank. We blame the internet for this, as not long after you log on you are reminded of the tricky nature of April 1 and thus put your guard up.
Until yesterday, the Broadway production of the Truman Capote classic 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' had been notable for starring 'Game of Thrones' mother of dragons Emilia Clarke in the Holly Golightly role. But now it's an animal actor who's getting all the ink.
Last year a man from England named Bart Simpson was arrested for having a firearm in an airport. Simpson is 56, so you can't blame his parents for giving him the kind of name that would result in ridicule and, eventually, a life of crime. ('The Simpsons' has been on for that long. It only seems like it.)
It was just fate that he ended up with the same name as a cartoon troublemaker. And when his trial began earlier this month fate struck again. Bart Simpson would be facing a judge named Mr. Burns.
Football is a rough game, and the last thing you want to do is play it with a faulty helmet.
