I think Ashton Kutcher may have helped write today's comic.

I feel a disturbance in the force... As if a thousand jokes just passed right over my head...
He's mister GlytchMeister, he's mister code
He's mister exploiter, he's mister ones and zeros
They call me GlytchMeister, whatever I touch
Starts to glitch in my clutch!
I'm too much!

Only think I can think of is that Paul got snow where he's at in the last few days... I had a friend in Kansas that got snow on Easter sunday and in Colorado they are still getting it in places...

DilyV, we got Easter snow in Amarillo as well... close to 2 inches, burned off by mid-afternoon.

As for the heading, keep in mind what day this is.

When did lying become conflated with pranking?

Children of that age don't really understand the difference . . . they're just learning about humor and it's a very blunt instrument.

This april fool's strip by Stjepan Sejic combined with this response to it by Phil Jackson was the one thing that really made me laugh out loud...

Remember them? Why, back in the day, I was one of the Implementors! :D

(Wow... the GPF anime game is playable, too! and the author knows the classic games in this genre, I think.)
