    C'mon, lolcats are the best invention since sliced bread. And the new name rocks!

    But I like lolcats! Can we keep them?
    Only if they follow you home.

    I was going to complain that this was a too obvious for an April's fools joke, but reading some of the comments, I clearly overestimated the intelligence of some of the posters.

    Exactly, it got me for maybe half the way down through reading the post. Then I saw 146 comments, and I thought, wow these are going to be obvious. Sadly I was wrong, everyone didn't get it.

  • Josh (unregistered)

    So you mean Mandatory Fun Day was just an early April Fool's joke and will disappear forever?

    Captcha: duis (is that like 'deuce'?)

    holy cow!!!! i just found out that today is international talk like a parrot day. You know, like international talk like a pirate day, only this one is for our little feathered friends. Anyway, good luck on the new direction with the blog. I'll be unsubscribing in a few minutes.

    Guy, you are a fool.

    I recognized that this article was an April Fool's Day joke! Despite the fact that over one hundred people have already done the same thing, I will now write a post proclaiming this fact to the world, so that no one will think I was taken in by the joke and everyone will know how intelligent I am!

  • alexgieg (unregistered)

    For next year I suggest: "The Daily OMG!".

    OMG obviously standing for "Oh my gracious!"

  • Fraggle My Rock (unregistered)

    Did Tipper Gore get to you? Many of these mishaps posted here are not WTH's, they are very clearly WTFs. There is a different, no?

  • moose (unregistered) in reply to Alan

    Are you mentally retarded? Or just really good at doing impressions.

    It's April the First.

    Hmmm - I think you should rename the site to something sensible like "The Daily Worse Then Failure" or something snazzy like that......

    :D

  • ASummer (unregistered)

    I guess you're never too old for an April Fools joke though, huh?

  • Mizchief (unregistered) in reply to ASummer

    Haha, good Joke. If it's not a joke i'll be done with this site.

  • (cs) in reply to David

    I'd been thinking along these lines while watching Battlestar Galactica. I want to write a script for them that goes something like

    "OK, team, I'm getting frakking tired of everyone using obscenities all over the place. From now on, instead of that horrible word 'frak' and its variants, please use a made-up word, like 'fuck' ."

  • Micah Rousey (unregistered)

    You gonna make an April Fools Kitteh?

  • BCS (unregistered)

    I long ago started reading it as "WHAT the ..."

  • Steve (unregistered)

    Congratulations on yet another rename. Are you going to change these awful, awful colors now?

  • (cs)

    Ok, I've removed my DailyWTF sticker from my car. Now what?

    Alan:
    For fucks sake, I am sick of all these constant changes of the name. this isnt a childrens web-site, we are all adults here who can handle a bit of swearing- come on. Its just another inication of the terrible slide in quality this site has taken.

    And LOLCATS!!! Is everything now so okeydokey in IT there is nothing funny left??? I will not be updating my bookmark - I will be deleting it

    I'm still trying to tell if you failed to get the joke, or are playing along with it. :P

  • Maarten (unregistered)

    May I suggest that the next name change be into "The Daily BBQ"? The other alternative being offensive for religious people, I don't see any other solution.

  • Frank (unregistered)

    When I actually checked if www.thedailywth.com was up, I was expecting a rickroll...

    would've been great!

    Can You say APRIL FOOLS?

  • buck (unregistered)

    Oh good, this will tie in so well with Google's new "Custom Time" feature...and hey, what great timing, being April 1st and all...

  • jk (unregistered)

    the real wtf is that the cat is not photographed on a wooden table...

    Nope, guess not.

    The real WTH is expecting half the planet to celebrate April Fools on April 2nd. The internets are confusing!

  • Anonymous Cheapskate (unregistered)

    I'm mildly impressed by the fact that you actually paid to implement this prank, even if it was only eight bucks (or whatever GoDaddy charges these days).

  • Aaron (unregistered) in reply to Alan

    HAHAHAHAHA

    AWESOME! Kitty cats! Just imagine all of the great new directions 'Mandatory Fun Day' could have with kitties!

    There could be a Godfather-like scene with Gilroy petting a cat while listening to a baker tell him of how his website was mercilessly DOS attacked by two young men who "walked free that very day!"

    Or Gilroy is in a storage room doing some girl on an old copy machine when a kitty cat suddenly comes up from behind and mistakes Gilroy's family jewels for a fun play-toy.

  • (cs) in reply to Kenny
    Kenny:
    The new direction for the site is what will make me stop coming here. You've changted the name for the site like 3 times in the last month. There is already a website dedicated to those stupid cats. We don't need them here. Comics, fine, but no cats please.
    Stupendous! A man who can't type and has huge fat fingers (changted) and still prefers comics to cats. (He also can't count, or at least works with non-terrestrial months.)

    Not to disparage the comic thing, but that's a cute cat. Any chance you'll lose that worthless sticker rubbish and send us kittens instead?

    I just think its great that Alex is jabbing himself (re: name changes) as much as anyone else.

    Here's a raised glass to you this fine April 1, Alex.

    The real What the Heck is that this is a leap year, so there is no April 1st. Check your calendar - today is the 2nd.
    What are you talking about?! I'm tired of sites where people post completely ridiculous information when they don't know what they are talking about (not to mention wrong codz) I'm unsubscribing right now and removing all my bookmarks to this site!
  • marius (unregistered)

    And I thought it's April Fools Day...
