I hate to confess that people have been April Sploofed.

Early in January, whilst still suffering from my New Year hangover, I thought I'd take advantage of others in the ame condition, and do a trial run for an April Sploof.

So I concocted 'Namyer Rus, Founder of Southern England'.

It was a superb quiz, full of fascinating information and, indeed, was honoured by an Editors' Award. I had many posts thanking me for such invaluable information.

But it was, of course, total rubbish. I thought that the question suggesting that 'Surrey' was named from the copious cow pats lying all over the county might have been one give-away? ......

But no.

And no-one obviously read Namyer Rus's name in reverse!

Armed with such audacity, in came another one, in time for April 1.

Dear old Su Foolps (yes - you've now read her name backwards, haven't you!), Journaliste Extraordinaire, was also, of course, total rubbish. Well, even Prince Charles would not have had a mistress well over 100 years old, would he?

But up came another Editors' Award. Thank you very much all!

Those who haven't yet tried them might like now to run through the quizzes where, hopefully, the Sploofed-factor will now become very obvious!

... Apart from Troypassion and Geniuswaitress, of course, who were the only two to notice the oddities en route.

I'm not sure whether I'm going to need to dodge the heavy artillery, or recline smug amidst gales of laughter.

Happy April, all!

PS: There's another Sploof quiz still out there, only noticed so far, again, by that genius, Geniuswaitress. Any other Sploof Spotters going to find it??!!

I feel so relieved that I never even saw either of those quizzes, so am not now hitting myself over the head. You indeed deserve a crown, oh Surreyman, King of Sploofus. Wayeth to go!

Your subject, Alice

.....Not having seen the aforementioned audacious items of fakery, I am slowly working my way thru Surreyman's quizzes, determined not to be caught out by another cunningly-devised quizzical quandary!

Of course he wins.......!! I am contributing to his points-tally whilst he is snickering in that li'l corner of the North Atlantic called "Britain"!!

Whoduh thunk it??? Surrey always seemed so straight forward and British proper. What we have here is a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Surrey...a serial spoofer...the game's afoot.

Thank goodness there isn't a May Fools Day coming up--or is there?...

Hahahaha for Namyer Rus I'm nearly certain I sent ardent congratulations for such a fine quiz! You pantsed us, dude.
