Forum's April Fools

Well, i'd just like to say well done Bikeforums for doing the April fools thingo with the line through the posts and the weirdo avatar. I thought either my sister had downloaded a virus or my computer had been hacked. But now i realise what it is. Phew.

I didn't get what all the hulla-baloo was about earlier. My Web Browser aparently doesn't support the "strike" command, for obvious reasons. But after visiting with an image capable browser I was impressed, much better than the local news this morning claiming that Michael Jackson was aquitted.

The Walma thing (green avatar deal) is fine but the freaking strikethough stinks. Ha Ha it was funny can we get back to our lack of lives now? Oh and someone posted in another thread that if you are running some other browser (other than IE I foreget what it was though) that a change to your view settings will clear it all up. I assume the prankster is using this other browser and laughing at us IE users.

A seal walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a drink.

The bartender asks the seal, "What's your pleasure?"

The seal replies, "Anything but Canadian Club."
