It was a joke. Honest.
APRIL FOOLS 2001
It was 11pm on March 31st as I sat across from Lindsy and asked "Hey, isn't tomorrow April Fools days?" This, of course, led to a mad dash to create the bogus "@T THE FAIR" page which greeted site visitors for approximately 24 hours on that prankful day. The idea was not very original, I admit, but it did get quite a bit of attention.
Within hours, a trickle of e-mails (which would continue throughout the day) started coming in...
It appeared most immediately got the joke but there were some who, at least at first, didn't...
While a few played right along...
But overall, it seems most figured it out pretty quickly...
For the record, the Butter Cow and Butter Elvis are actually pictures from my other photo archive site at DisneyFans.com in the Iowa State Fair section. I'm guessing this is the most exposure those two pictures have ever received.
The joke page was viewed over 100 times during the 24 hour period it was available. For those of you who missed it the first time we present it here in its entirety:
So, until next year ... happy April Fools from all of us At The Faire (dot com)! -- JPG & WWW
P.S. from Willa - Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! (Yes, they got married on April Fools Day...doesn't that explain quite a bit about me?)
