    As a part of my morning rituals I read Fox Trot and Get Fuzzy. Check out today's strips.

    Fox Trot
    Get Fuzzy
    Pearls Before Swine

    There are probably others running the same strip as well.

    So anyone else noticed any pranks so far today?

    Edit: added Pearls before Swine

    Did you read all three of the cartoons that atszyman linked to? The prank willl make more sense if you do that (it won't if you only saw the Foxtrot strip by itself).

    It still doesn't make sense... all 3 comics are the same and shed no more light on the topic. :confused:

    You don't think that it happens to be a prank that the authors are playing on us by running the same gag in their strips on April 1st?

    I haven't found any others running this gag but there are a lot of strips to check.

    Three of my favorite comics! That's a pretty good gag. Did you notice Foxtrot was dated 2004? Wonder if he's the originator of all this?!

    Even more cuel is there's no associated link to click on.... I'm trying to figure out the anagram on the 'Free' T-shirt. The best one I have is Think geek takes fools shop. :)


    <edit> Now I'm pretty sure the anagram is "Fools shop at ThinkGeek". I messed up the letter count when trying different variations. </edit>
