April Fools' Contest!

It's April Fools' Day!

We LOVE April Fools' Day. It makes us feel all clever and sly and like such tricksy Hobbitses.

Who knows what mischief we might get into here at the Coop with our fresh vat of nacho cheese and a carton of stink bombs at our disposal!

But we're not the only clever ones around!

As readers of our blog, you have proven yourselves quite the smartcicles.

So, are you up for a contest?

Here's the deal: Leave us a message and tell us about a clever trick you have pulled on someone or had pulled upon you or even just one that you heard about.

Or . . .

Tell us a joke or a riddle! We love jokes and riddles!

Or . . .

Leave us a link to a silly website or video! You know how we love silly!

On April 8, 2008 we will pick winners from all those who entered. The grand prize (drawn randomly) will be an autographed copy of Andrea's Brand-Spanking NEW picture book, DOCTOR TED!!!!!!


(Note: While saying that DOCTOR TED is brand-spanking new, we do not in any way imply that he spanks any brands. However, he does administer fine medical advice and has been known to administer cookies as needed and can diagnose measles, gingivitis, and foot odor.)

Here's a great review where you can learn more about Ted. This one includes some fabulous pics from DOCTOR TED. Here's another. And a podcast, too! But wait... we digress! That happens when we get to talking about bears with stethoscopes. We'll post more about DOCTOR TED very soon!


Meanwhile, back to the contest . . .

Five other lucky winners will receive mystery prizes to be named when we figure out what that stuff is in the back of our refrigerator and if it can be legally shipped via the US Postal Service!!!!

These winners will be selected by being funny, clever, or just lucky that everyone else was playing bunco and forgot to enter. Hey, it's all good!

You can play early and play often!

I'm going with the silly riddle option:

How many ghosts does it take to change a light bulb?

Oh, darn. I forget, but since I'm working on a ghost mystery you'd think the answer would be somewhat transparent.

In the carpool line...

Me: How was your day?

Big Kid: Terrible.

Big Kid: Our teacher was nominated to be the Superintendent of Science.

Me: Wow. That's great!

Big Kid: We thought so too. But then he told us that he's leaving after the break. Mrs. Pond will be teaching us the rest of the year.

Big Kid: And she's mean. Really, really mean. No smiling. No talking. No having fun. You know Katherine? She cried.

Me: Oh that's terrible. But I'm sure Mr. P would pick someone great. Just give her a chance...

Big Kid: Gotcha! April Fool's! I can't believe you fell for it. Superintendant of Science... Giggle, giggle, SNORT!

What a fun way to not work this morning. Oops, it's afternoon already. Guess I'd better add my silly youtube video to this group and get back to the piles of paper on my desk.

Behold the dancing bird:
