Neil! Susan! We've been duped!

Me sulking and then totally perplexed altogether

Wow. And just a few hours ago I was sulking that Neil Gaiman had linked Susan Henderson in his blog instead of me --the self-proclaimed Empress of Cyberworld -- as concerns the lunatic I told you about who was eating all of Neil's books.

But the story has now taken a strange, bizarre twist.

Guys? We've been duped.

In fact, we have been hornswoggled.

Ha! Brilliant!


  1. Hahaha! Thank goodness Sue's got a sense of humor. I hope Neil Gaiman does, too!

    Don't worry--it was all in good fun. We loved getting mentioned by you and Susan, and also by Neil.

    We are careful to make our practical jokes as painless as possible. Nobody should feel that they've been cheated or lied to on any serious level, once the dust settles. ;-)

  3. Oh, I'm sure he has a most excellent sense of humor and he's probably relieved that there's one less nutcase stalking him. Or should I say eating him. Ha.

    That was some warped plan. Naturally, I love it.


  4. Ha! See my reply to Ellen, Socar.

    The more warped, the merrier.

    Good job!

    And Happy April Fools Day to you. Now. How the hell are you going to top this next year?

    (Ooh ooh, can I help?)

    Thank you very much!

    As for next year...blimey, I'm still cooling off from this year! That was a lot of words (and a lot of nail-biting, towards the end).

    It's long been an ambition of mine to play a joke on everyone, absolutely EVERYONE, but I have no idea how one would even begin to do something like that. One would need vast circulation. The world's biggest megaphone.

    It would be much easier if I was rich.

  6. I just wish you were responsible for the November, 2004 election in the United States and I would have woken up the next day to Socar saying "It's all a prank - he doesn't exist!"

    I'm a prankster, Captain, not a miracle-worker.


  8. I wholeheartedly approve of this kind of pranksterism...but still, even the best jokes can leave a foul taste...oh, no pun intended re: the faux eating of Gaiman's pages...
