      We can rename the boring "slashdot effect" the "slashdot pony stampede"! LOLZ!!!!111oneoneeleven

      (holy shit, I participated in puss^H^H^Hinkdot day)

      I'm damn glad this will only last a day. In high school, a friend of worked at Toys-r-Us for the Christmas season, and got stuck stocking the Barbie aisle. In 3 weeks he went color blind, and his vision didn't return to normal until the following February.

  • This cracked me up when I saw it yesterday. Thanks for recovering your sense of humor, folks :)

    Let's see, who's left to feign offense? Ah yes, here goes:
    Oh no! I'm a postman, and sarcasm offends my kind! I can't believe Slashdot could be so insensitive! I hate you all!

    Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people today? The barely-disadvantaged-at-all are out in force bitching about every little detail. These are jokes, get over yourselves!

    I think the pink'n'ponies scheme has already been patented somewhere, so even the GPL can't save us this time.

    What new look?

    I've noticed that there hasn't been any dupes today, keep up the good work Slashdot Editors!

      Aside from the pink and the lack of dupes, it does seem to be business as usual today at Slashdot! Particularly in the editing department. :)
    • Your new here aren't you? Or, do you remember last year? You should be on your knees, thanking $god_of_choice for "pink poneys" [sic for the clue impaired].

      P.S. Mod me up.

    Okay, lets see how many comments there are saying "This is not funny". Relax. Wash your face. Apply a Biore strip. Put some cucumbers over your eyes. Breath in the good, exhale the bad. Everything will be alright.

    Besides the pink theme, how come there isn't anything out of the ordinary with slashdot today?

    Does no one here that seems to be 'offended' notice todays date? *grin* If you are reading most of the comments after the initial post, you wont see a ton of pink. Not that I am a pink person to start with, but I find this all quite humorous. Cheers.
  • And it was only today in honor of the Apple 30th Anniversary that I switched back to the tiny 4" black & white screen for a day... just in time, apparently.
  • do you know how confused I was last night reading this site? first off I wasn't in my right state of mind, and then i come here and it's all pink. I was so confused.
  • WTF!!?? must... get... coffee.... Ow, my EYES!
  • Aw. Don't we all just looooove Loki's Day?
  • er...maybe that's his own April Fool's joke....
  • I don't know what scares me more, the pink theme or the fact that Taco researched such mainstream programing such as the "OC". People like my self have to hit wikipedia to figure out what "OC" is as opposed to some other crap on Fox, let alone know one of the main characters tried "drugs" [].

    All I have to say is OMG... like totally well done... gag me with a microchip.
  • My browser doesn't shows Colors/Backgrounds/Custom Fonts/CSS (since i disabled them all).I don't ever see this crap even if whole web was designed like a winXP.And it loads abit faster.Only thing some sites require JavaScript for extra features,but i can work without it.

    the reference on Linux Kernel Mailing List didn't being down Slashdot, but the reference on Slashdot brought down LKML. Shocking, I say!
  •! What has happened to Slashdot. This isn't an april fools joke, its more like Taco has been trippin on shrooms or smoking some powerful .... I came expecting some funny articles, not this psycodelic pinkness. Reading thru its like i'm looking at some 14 year old girls place...i guess thats the point.
