It must be April 1. There is no other explanation for this.
Seriously, some things should remain in the format where they originated. There appears to be a dire lack of creativity in our entertainment industry.
Of course, when you have the Internet, you don't need the entertainment industry. Or more accurately, you don't need the multi-million mega-studio productions. I will be happy when the 'entertainment Industry' in this country is limited to small private studios like the Foglios. If current trends continue, that won't take long.
