I'm here now, what were you saying?

I was talking about the real Annadog40 attacking people's character posing as you in other threads. Are just going to let her get away with that?

What did I do? And when did you figure it out?

He said I did something, Kite! Is your name AD40?

I didn't see Kite tarnishing his reputation through any attacks of character! I think he's a mighty fine, upstanding forum citizen!

Strangely enough, because he doesn't post very often, it was @robert whose upgrade I encountered first, sometime around midnight. 

My first thought was "Wow, finally he decides to give himself a fancy new avatar. It's about time!" I didn't recognize it as an apple at first (his whole head shrunk!)

You've no idea how hard it was to wait until it was April 1st in your timezone. It's like I get 2 April Fools for the price of one.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Yeah, when I saw he'd updated, I thought, "D'oh, I hope VonBontee doesn't see it before the others!"

Was an interesting day on the forum, yesterday was! And a sad day for The Beatles world.

But looking toward the good parts, I hope Anna and I fooled some of you!

Now I'm going to go about putting a disclaimer at the end of my posts from yesterday to clarify the joke for anyone reading later. Then I'll get your identity back to you, @Starr Shine?! a-hard-days-night-george-10

What did I do? And when did you figure it out?

There were a few things that tipped the hand that both you & Kite and ASJ & SG had switched identities. I won't go into my secrets as to how I discovered it, but my suspicions were confirmed when:

1. Annadog40 was suddenly forming multiple coherent sentences with no spelling errors
2. Mr. Kite was not
3. AppleScruffJunior was suddenly giving out Beatley smileys like PEZ candies
4. Silly Girl was not

No criticisms here, just observations. It would be like meanmistermustard and myself switching identities.

1. Suddenly Zig would be posting well thought out, intelligent things to say
2. meanmistermustard would not

2. meanmistermustard would not be re-writing witty, elaborate song parodies 

Fixed.

Also, I can't remember if I ever acknowledged the greatness of @parlance (and everybody) for orchestrating this elaborate prank. (Thought I did but it must've been on another thread; or maybe I had no time at work to "submit reply"...) Anyways, it was brilliant! Thanks for that.

Hey I was browsing in an old thread just now and I saw that apparently @Ben Ramon showed up here on the first! And his apple is weirdly still intact.

I have a strict personal no-swearing policy, even pretend swearing, so that was difficult to do. I don't really mind if other people swear, I just can't do it myself.
