Arseblog: Wednesday 2nd April 2003

april 2nd

10.55 – So, no doubt you’ve figured out yesterday’s Google story was an April Fool’s gag. They did not send me a cease and desist letter at all. Well, they sent me one yesterday to cease and desist making up stories about them….er….I should give it a rest now, eh?

It seems my cunning double bluff of telling you last year I was going to do my April Fool’s story a day early, doing a story on March 31st, then doing the real one on April Fool’s day worked a charm. Of course I’m totally ruined now for April Fool’s gags from now on. Next year is just a write off. Expect April Fool’s day 2004 to fall sometime in mid-January here on Arseblog.

The story did appear on this website, but now seems to have vanished into the cyber-ether, never to be seen again – until Google’s cache picks it up of course. I can’t really understand why somebody would delete it….it’s not like they fell for the old ‘Your laces are undone….no seriously they are….look….come on….I wouldn’t lie to you…look….I swear….they are undone…’ll trip up….come oooooooon…..HAHAHAHA – MADE YOU LOOK’ gag. Other people ran the story without deleting it afterwards….

Amazingly, there’s actually some Arsenal news about today. Ashley Cole could play against Villa on Saturday after making a comeback against Peterborough reserves yesterday. He played and scored in the 4-2 win for the Gunners. Oleg Luzhny also took part. Robert Pires and GvB will miss the game through injury though.

According to reports in Germany Arsenal have made an enquiry for Yugolsavian defender Mladen Krstajic. Nope, I’ve never heard of him either. Well done to Francis Jeffers who last night equalled Alan Shearer’s goal scoring record at under-21 level. 13 goals in 13 games. If he stays fit, I reckon he’s going to be an important player for us for years to come.

A big question that has needed answering in recent weeks is ‘Where the hell is Leopold Mendacious?’ To be honest, I haven’t got a clue. I suspect Absinthe, opium dens and international mysteries, but never can tell with him. Anyway, he’s back and his latest offering ‘It’s nice and warm in the belly of the beast‘ can now be found over on the real ANR.

Finally for today, congratulations to regular ‘arser’ and all-round Canadian bloke Dan, who got married last weekend in San Francisco – the only place in the world that would let a bloke marry a hockey stick dressed in a leather mini-skirt, an Arsenal away shirt and with a bottle of scotch for a head. Well done, Sir.
