    :-!

    Sure it's real. Heck, I knew I shouldn't have announced this on APRIL FOOLS DAY. But I'm completely against all this APRIL FOOLS DAY hoo-ha. Actually, the guy who posted that on my site isn't really me (I think it might be Dave Grossman...) but I would have said much the same thing.

    Y'know, this reminds me of the time I pitched Monkey Island to the then LucasArts president, Randy Breen: I said, "hey guy, how about this Opera game about monkeys?" Back then the idea was to translate opera into a video game (something I'd still like to do... anyone got the money for that?) but Breen thought we were joking because it was APRIL FOOLS DAY (boy was my face red -- I'd forgotten!!)

    ANYHOO, that "mistake" meant that Monkey Island was turned into a comedy and the Opera plan was scrapped. So maybe something equally fortunate will come out of the fact that some people don't believe that I've joined the Mix'n'Mojo staff... :-)

    Yes, I'm sure it is all real. I BELEIVE YOU I SWEAR!

    I especially like the prank here that I am currently the only victim of.

    It's super keen!

    Hey, there you go. Tell you what: give me a call on 0772884 50699 and leave me your home address details. HONESTLY I will get you Monkey Island 5 first as soon as I can make it, because YOU were the only one who believed me.

    I think it was Tim Schafer who said "because you believe in me, your faith has made you well."

    My phone tells me that numbers starting with 07 should be 11 digits long. I'm starting to suspect this is an elaborate ruse.

    It's funny that you have a British mobile phone telephone number, Ron.

    It said "Your call did not go through, please hang up and try your call again."

    Can you check that number for me!?
