The moral of the story: Don't believe everything you read on the internet!
Last year's blog post on this date (April 1st, folks) was a complete farce. It was the ONLY time I've ever tried an April Fool's prank, and gosh..but I nailed it!
Did you get taken in? Don't worry - many people did. Including, believe it or not!, ...
my own mother, who commented "I've been to your farm plenty...where are you hiding away this banana breeding program?!" Seriously...she was fooled.
And even through last fall, I kept meeting people who inquired about those "Polaris" bananas!
Some astute readers noticed the date before they read too far into the post. Others, clicking on the "Order Now" button at the bottom of the post, were sent to the "reveal" page. But plenty of people were stumped....and in some cases even arguments between spouses ensued until they cleared things up with me.
This April Fool's Day? Nope - I'm not going to even try. After that success, I've done my best for what is expected to be seen on the internet, on this very special of days.
Happy April Fool's Day.... now go enjoy a REAL banana!
