  | I was like who could think it was anything but a joke?

Some might be dumb enough, or deceitful enough, to propose such
nonsense, but there's no chance that that kind of thing would survive
any kind of review (even just by the bureaucrats who would need to
actually implement it).

When you see something like that claiming to have been implemented,
you know (or should, unless you're a moron) that the whole thing is
a joke, whether you understand the April fools' concept or not.
