FUCK YEAH, April Fools #Publishing#april fools Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Apr 1 2014) Ariel arielmstallings In years past, we've done whole elaborate April Fools schemes with posts laser-targeted to freak out (and yes, enrage) our readers: The honor of your presence is denied: how to tell people not to come to your wedding Beige is the new rainbow: 5 reasons why you should probably tone down your decor palette I changed my mind and so will you: why "Child-Free" isn't a real thing This year, we're going so subtle that some of you may not even notice. Just a tiny little text change that only the most engaged of our readers will even notice. …Find it yet? Update: April Fool's is over, so the "FUCK YEAH!" button has returned to it's standard "THIS!" text. 🙂 Share this:TwitterFacebook Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Show/Hide comments [ 26 ] I think I found it but I don't want to spoil it for everyone else… At the risk of being too cryptic or too revealing, is it a font thing? I'm totally in favour of this change being made permanent! Likewise! It's definitely been requested before! Keep it! Keep it! Keeeeeeep iiiiiiiit! Fuck yeah!!! Is it too cyclical that I saw it and my immediate response was, "Fuck Yeah!" ? I'm just gonna go around the Empire clicking all the buttons today…. Why is this an April Fools? It should be like this everyday! Please keep the change! I actually busted out laughing and said "that's awesome!". It never even dawned on me that it was an April Fools joke – it just seemed so appropriate for the Offbeat Empire. I still don't understand how one unFucks a Yeah, though. 😛 I spent more time than I'd like to admit contemplating what the undo language should be. "Fuck No" sounded too negative though. If it comes up again (next year?), maybe "nevermind"? Or is that too many characters for the button to look right? It took me longer than it should have… ::amused:: OH NOES I MISSED SEEING IT! …fuck no 🙁 I'm not seeing anything….. and here I thought I was a pretty good lurker. guess not. Kirstin, the April Fool's joke was deactivated in the evening — since the day was over. 🙂 I tried looking earlier in the day as well, but my computer was running insanely slow so maybe that's why I didn't see it I saw it, assumed that you'd changed it for reals and went looking on the empire feed for some sort of notification. It must have just changed over as I found no mention what so ever and was quite confused! I was like "ooooh, that may cause some controversy with the super newbies!" and otherwise thought nothing more of it! Hahaha! Hahaha this is so funny! I came to OBH and then searched through all the offbeat sites looking specifically for the April fools, but I saw the button and thought, "cool!". It completely went over my head that THAT was the April fool. You fooled me! I really did think that was a real change! I think I kinda miss it… Um, please bring it back. It was awesome and I miss it. Dawww, I miss it already. Well dang! I noticed and thought it was an upgrade.. lol I really just thought it was a non-April fools change. Fuck Yeah for life.
