TLC April Fools’ Joke – Writing Contest #39

Last year, The Lion’s Call turned itself upside down, literally. The year before, Narniaweb announced that Mr. T had been cast as the voice of Reepicheep. What kind of prank should The Lion’s Call play on April Fool’s Day this year? Give us your idea and see which one is brought to life on the site.

Example:
Make everything on the whole site pink instead of yellow and cream.

Judge’s Note: Good work! I used several of your ideas. The winner is the person who suggested making several changes on the site. I included the items I used as honorable mentions, and threw in a few funny ideas I didn’t use for good measure.

Honorable Mentions

Mislabel it by Anonny Mouse
“Creatively” label items on the menu. For example, change “Fan Creations” to “AC [short for Air Conditioning] Creations”.

Darth Vador time! by preciousjewl
Why not turn this site into a Darth Vador fan site? It would really confuse some people, and make others laugh like crazy! It would be fun to see!

Label change by Queen Susan of the Horn
You should make it say, “The Lion’s Call, celebrating 100 years of winter.

Star wars by C.S. Lois

Announce that one of the pages under one of the tabs has been customized for “April Fool’s Day”, and that the purpose is to find out which one on your first click. Then don’t do anything. People will click all the tabs, not see anything new or special, and realize they were fooled…

On all the pages or just the home page, have Price caspian saying “i’m prince caspian” from the trailer over and over again. It proves verry annoying!

Small Stuff… by Narniajewel
You could do a buch of small stuff on the site: get a fake counter that would add time rather than count down, switch some links around, Make the caption pic from Winnie the Pooh or something similar,have the staff go on strike…stuff like that. With a bunch of small things around you could see who notices what and they’ll be talking about it for a bit longer since different people will notice different small stuff.
