April

Yesterday I learned how to defend myself from a man who comes at me with a banana. I already feel much safer than I did.

Anyway at the start of March I made a post extolling the wonders of March itself and now I might as well do the same for April. So April was the most recent month to be created, long after all the other months were already there. It got rather teased by everyone and is even now thought of as 'the new kid' but as a sort of new kid month of some kind. It is said that those born in April are said to be fools and many of these people end up savagely attacking themselves for the fun of it later in life.
The word April itself came from two sources the first being Ape. Which roughly translated means Monkey. The second half of the word came from Rilliniminial. Which means Pirate. So April means the month of the monkey pirates. It is a legend that this month was found with amnesia on a bench in New York and that the man who found it took sympathy for it and introduced it into the year. However that sounds ever so slightly doubtful.
I'm sure everyone remembers the great April fiasco of 2002 when a bunch of smugglers tried to smuggle 4,000 tons of ice cream into Argentina within the hidden compartment of the p in April.

So there you go. Everything you ever needed to know about April.

What happens if a man comes at you with a pointed stick, eh?!

Pointed stick? Oh, oh, oh. We want to learn how to defend ourselves against pointed sticks, do we? Getting all high and mighty, eh? Fresh fruit not good enough for you eh? Well I'll tell you something my lad. When you're walking home tonight and some great homicidal maniac comes after you with a bunch of loganberries, don't come crying to me!

What about an apple on a pointed stick? This could be the end of civilization as we know it.

And now I eat the banana. Thus rendering her effectiveless.

Also I know I'm replying after about 10 days. I just thought that there would be less chance of this spiralling into infinity if I did it now.
