Wait, What? ‘Rick and Morty’ Season 3 Premieres On April Fools’ Day, No One Believes It
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Rick and Morty Season 3 April Fools's Day Premiere

April Fools’ Day ended here on the east coast a couple of hours ago, but not before one brilliant final trick was pulled off. We’ve been wondering for a long time now when Rick and Morty season three would finally premiere, and now we have an answer: it already premiered.

No announcement, no promos, not even a listing on your TV guides (so if you have it set to record only new episodes automatically, you missed out). Nothing at all, but a quick “Hey, there’s a new episode on right now!” via the Twitter. And many missed it because they didn’t believe it was true, including myself. But there’s still a way!

Marissa Bergen   |  

Metal Band

Local death metal band, Auditory Vomit, is looking for a new drummer after firing Don “Cymbal Slayer” Greenblatt from the band. Reports say that it all started when Greenblatt got into an argument with singer and band founder, Trevor “I Eat Kittens for Breakfast” Odermeyer. Band members, bass player Fred “Thunder Strummer 69” Finestein and guitar player Nils “Slammer Hammer” Henriksen claim the two began arguing during a rehearsal in Odermeyer’s mother’s basement in their home town of Trenton, NJ.

Stephen Amell Donald Trump April Fool's Day

Last weekend, President Donald Trump spent his time at Mar-a-Lago playing golf and binging television for “research.” While that is the norm these days, what followed was unbelievable. At 3am Sunday morning, after finishing the most recent episode of Arrow, a barrage of tweets rained down in the Twitterverse, criticizing the weak leadership of Star City mayor, Oliver Queen.

More on this story below.

DC’s Arm-Fall-Off-Boy To Join The Arrowverse
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

April Fools Day Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

“My power will astound you! Observe as I detach my limb, and transform it into a deadly weapon!”

— Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

That name has to be a joke right. Right? But no, it’s far too real. Arm-Fall-Off-Boy was created by Gerard Jones and Curt Swan and had his first appearance in DC Comics in Secret Origins Volume 2, #46 in November 1989. The futuristic hero has the unique ability to detach his limbs and beat his enemies down with them. Since Marvel is raking in the dough with obscure heroes from their catalog like the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, DC figures if you can’t beat them, join them, and is literally scraping the barrel for forgotten characters.

Disney Wants To Reimagine Classic ‘Star Wars’ Parody ‘Hardware Wars’
Waerloga69   |  @   |  

Star Wars parody Hardware Wars

In 1977, the world was amazed and delighted by the now iconic film Star Wars. The following year, a short parody film by the name of Hardware Wars found its way into the hearts of millions. With characters by the name of Fluke Starbucker, Augie “Ben” Doggie, Princess Anne-Droid, Ham Salad, and Chewchilla the Wookiee Monster, the short film’s cast was an obvious tongue-in-cheek referencing to the original Star Wars roles. Household equipment made up the vast majority of props in the parody, hence the name. Hilarious and goofy, the video lampoon was and is a cult classic to this day. As a matter of fact, I just watched it again and laughed all the way through.

HBO Wants Pastry-Themed ‘True Blood’ Spinoff ‘Sookie’s Cookies’
Waerloga69   |  @   |  

True Blood

HBO’s True Blood series was a phenomenal hit by any measurement. Based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, they follow the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse, a telepath in Louisiana who possesses an extraordinary lack of self-preservation. Constantly in danger, she aligns herself with and against supernatural creatures like vampires and werewolves, all the while seeking to find her place in the world. Sookie, played by Anna Paquin in all seven seasons, finally seems to find herself living a normal life after the end of the final season. But fans have continued to clamor for more. Will HBO ever deliver?

Daredevil Now ‘Risk-Averse Angel’ After Born Again Conversion
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Daredevil, Volume 1: Devil at Bay

In a development so stunning it made me drop a cup of coffee on my foot this morning, Daredevil – the self-proclaimed nocturnal protector of Hell’s Kitchen (the neighborhood in New York, not the cooking show with that perpetually angry British dude) – has revealed that he has become a born again Christian and will no longer battle crime as Daredevil.

“I can no longer continue my fight against the criminal element of this city while dressed as a poorly-attired minion of the dark lord Satan,” Daredevil said to the assembled press early this morning. “I am now….Risk-Averse Angel!”

U Umlaut

A town hall debate today that included Republican frontrunners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, which was to have focused on what was referred to as “an attack on America’s core values,” took a strange turn when the two contenders actually joined together for a 40-minute rant about the dangers of the umlaut.

Yes, you read that correctly. The umlaut. For more information, continue reading.
