Contest Winner: Share Your Coolest April Fool’s Story

Submitted by on April 19, 2010 – 16:49No Comment

Hey everyone!

Thank you for participating in Cybermate’s Dungeon – Share Your Coolest April Fool’s Story contest. I know, in some countries, USD $50 as the Grand Prize is not a tempting reward but hey, in Malaysia, it’s quite a big sum of money to be won. Especially when all you have to do is tell your story and entry submission is FREE!

After reading through all the entries posted on Cybermate’s Dungeon – Share Your Coolest April Fool’s Story, I’ve found one particular simple prank that everyone shouldn’t be falling into on April Fool’s Day – yet they did exactly just that. Even family members fall for it! Here’s the winning entry by Michelle:

Just wanted to share my april fools prank I thought I’d go a bit crazy this year and change my Facebook relationship status from ‘Single’ to ‘In a relationship’. It’s only been six hours since the change, and already people are leaving comments and sms-ing me asking for details. Haha. My younger brother panicked and asked whether he could tell our mum. I said “Go ahead, but first ask yourself what day this is.”

Flo herself texted me. Went something like this:

“Michelle, Congratulations!. So, who’s the new heartthrob”

Reply: “Oil palms. Happy April Fool’s Day”

Flo: LOL. Post tat(sic) up in Gina’s website……….

The reason why this simple yet effective prank won the coolest April Fool’s story is because Michelle’s own brother fell for it too! And you think siblings know you best. Haha!

Congratulations, Michelle! You’ve won yourself USD $50. Check your email for more details on how to collect your prize. For the rest of you, don’t be disheartened. There’s another contest coming up in May. And the prize is going to fly you high up into the sky. Keep a lookout for that ya… Stay tuned!
