Your clever April Fools’ Day prank both fooled me and made a fool of me. The unlikely-yet-plausible scenario you posited drew me in, and I reacted in such a way as to indicate my belief in its veracity. My subsequent shame and embarrassment at my own gullibility is a source of delight to all, and rightly so. Well done, my friend. I applaud your skillful ingenuity.
Okay? Are we done here? Thanks so much.
