Ok, ok, we're done -- Foxtoid.com has filed for bankruptcy despite its unparalleled coverage of corruption and non consensual forced sodomy in the gaming industry. The co-branded venture made it into Mashable's Top 5 jokes of the day and a little love from Sony. You can probably guess what brought this on: Like many gamers, we've had a bone to pick with Fox News since the Mass Effect scandal and wanted to use today's opportunity to make a statement and enjoy spoofing their sensationalist format. An eye for an eye, putos chingones! (I'm practicing taxi dialogue for our staff trip to Cancun this week).
Amidst the chaos we had a few user submitted gems too -- we encourage you to check out the April 1st Community Blogs, some which CTZ has been dutifully promoting. I'd also like to share with you this letter to the editor from a concerned reader about the bizarre happenings on today's home page. Names have been removed to protect the innocent:
We're unsure if this confused soul missed the date on the calendar or truly captured the spirit of things and single handedly one-upped us, but it was very entertaining either way. Hope everyone enjoyed their April Fool's around the web and on our special edition of Foxtoid. The domain name should continue to work for anyone that missed it.
