MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

Even with a cold, I hunkered down to go over my April Fools issues from 2005-2011.


More of my April Fools editions, up to 2004 this week.


Herein the second part of my recounting of my history of April Fools editions.

This time, it's work gags from 1994-1998, excluding 1995. Why didn't it print?


In the headlines (last) week:

Construction on housing finally scheduled to get underway near CitiField

MetroCard upgrade delayed because it was scheduled for Super Bowl weekend

Trump will probably refuse to release Democratic memo and blame the FBI

Plastic bag tax is underway on Long Island but not state-wide

Did you know there are five public toilets in New York City, and that it took 25 years to open them?


A look at some big recent news stories.


I had some bitcoin and wanted to sell part of it, to get "real cash."

And here is where my adventures began.


Did you know that a company in New York cannot deduct a shortage from a worker's paycheck or demand that they pay it from their own pocket?

Well, it is a right-to-work state, or if you are not a union member, they could summarily fire you for not making good on a shortage.

But this is not something I knew about 30 years ago. When I had a similar situation occur.


I recorded this episode in three segments on Election Day 2017.

The first at lunch, the second at dinner, and the third after the polls closed.

My perspective on some things changed over the course of the day's events.



The New York City mayoral election is this week and nobody is giving Republican candidate Nicole Malliatokis a chance of victory.

Then again, this election is not all about getting elected. It's part of a larger, more intricate process involving the workings of the political system in New York City and State.


AM NY dubbed last week's Mayoral debate "Dietl Mania," because of the presence of gadfly (with no chance of winning) Bo Dietl.

Some local commentary, so be forewarned.
