US radio station plays excellent April Fool's prank on their Facebook fans

It’s an April Fool’s prank with a lesson.

HERE’S AN APRIL Fool’s prank with a bit of a lesson.

On Tuesday, American radio station NPR posted this link on their Facebook page:


If you actually click on the article, it reads:

Congratulations, genuine readers, and happy April Fool’s Day!
We sometimes get the sense that some people are commenting on NPR stories they haven’t actually read. If you are reading this, please like this post and do not comment on it. Then let’s see what people have to say about this “story”.

Unfortunately many of their Facebook fans didn’t click, instead posting incredulous comments based on the title of the article and showing themselves up enormously.



Kids, the lesson here is: Don’t comment before you read the article. (We’ll see how many people take it to heart.)
