Much like Groundhog Day, which seems like it is a holiday made up by the mentally ill, I have never had much use for April Fools Day*. People seem to get really into it for reasons I don’t understand and most of the jokes that come out of it are lame. That is, until I saw this posted on Zooborns** this morning.
“On February 18th, the Franklin Park Zoo welcomed the birth of a highly endangered Skeksis hatchling. This birth marks the first baby for proud parents Aughra and Fizzgig. Once plentiful in the Thra Valley and adjacent mountains, Skeksis are now extinct in the wild and only ten remain in captivity. Known for their characteristic whimper, Skeksis are happiest when feasting on podling essence or when keepers treat them to roast nebrey.”
Oh internet, how I love you sometimes . . .
*Except for the fact that it is my sister-in-law’s birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIN!
