It's an April Fools joke. Not a funny one either. As far as something like that happening here.. will never happen. Our mods are too good to let things like that go on in the forums.

*yawn* CDFreaks site is terribly slow now. That April Fool's Joke isn't even funny. Stupid holiday, I can't wait until April 2nd.

I saw it on a bumper sticker. I knew right away it would make the perfect sig.

Funny, that's exactly where I got mine from too. Of course, I also took the bumper sticker and put it on my bedroom wall.

Yeah, I've seen that one too. I wish they'd make one that says "F*ck Bush". I'd buy that.

The folks who thought of the prank at CD Freaks slipped up on one thing; why would the RIAA (the last A being the most important) contact the CD Freaks, which is headquartered in Europe (the Netherlands, if I'm not mistaken)? I didn't think the Recording Industry Association of AMERICA had any jurisdiction in Holland. Now, if they mentioned the local RIA in the Netherlands, then that would have made more sense.

it didnt make any sense but i suffer from paranoid schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and that got me on edge thinking that they would stoop that low as I am also a pretty active person in politics and it got the old wheel spinning and had me pissed off.I didnt even realize today was april 1st either as I have been up for 4 or is it 5 days now. Whew I wish I had a job again.
