Today may not be the best day to search Wikipedia

I'm pretty sure that the on-line Encyclopedia Britannica never changed its front page like Wikipedia has done this morning. If you happen upon this post today, April 1, you really should click over and check that out. If not, never mind.

Junior high school students, be warned: Today may not be the best of days to do your research entirely on line.

I did see a quote attributed to Mark Twain that strikes me as appropriate to the occasion: "April 1. This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four." Self-awareness is a blessing and a curse.
