It has been an IPR tradition to post “April Fool’s Day” articles every year. However, this year I am having a failure of imagination and my creativity is failing me. It seems that our other writers may be having the same issue. So, for the remaining two hours of April 1st, it will be up to our readers to come up with April Fools headlines, or whole stories if they so choose, in the comments here if they so choose. Feel free to use past articles as templates:
If you are a new IPR writer or just forgot about April 1 this year, of course you are still free to post a stand alone April 1 article of your own, or several.
Since it appears that no one has bothered to post an April 2018 Open Thread either this article can also become that, after today.
