April Fool's Day Art Parodies, History & Fun

I love to do Art Parodies, and you'll find them at the bottom of my Tributes Page here

  1. The director of my group went around putting tape over the bottom of people's computer mouses so they wouldn't work. He didn't get me because I got to work early. :-)

    Happy April 1st!

  2. Malcolm - that's pretty funny actually, I'll have to remember that little prank. I bet you're happy you were there early though!
