    Guys, it's 3 days until April 1, and we don't have a joke. This is inexcusable. We need to get brainstorming now, and you guys are just sitting on your asses? What the hell?

    Why don't we just change the language on the home page like every other year? I bet that this time they'll think we are doing something big, so our tried and tested classic will totally catch them by surprise. Forum redirects could work too, or a thread written by chaos giving Phil absolute power and ownership of smogon (hahaha nah!).

    Anyway how about we make it so every time someone makes a post the text is reversed?

    Also I like the idea of giving CiM 'admins' that whistle suggested on IRC

    How about we propose a new ruling? Only 1 legendary per team, because we all know that legendary pokemon are cheap. Surely that would help balance the metagame?

    Maybe we could ban all Dream world abilities because they make this game too new. We need to appeal to the older people also!

    Actually I'm imagining this on a mass scale and it actually seems hilarious, especially if we take the sig and avy of the person we're switching with.

    Oh wait, sorry you need the text to put it on site:

    最近のチンポ
    俺のチンポは大きいです
    チンポなめてください
    なめたら、甘い味するよ
    〜ライシング_チンポ
    チンポ好き

    Yeah, it could always be worse-- he could make a penis joke.
