    You got me :biggrin:
    I haven't clicked on the "ultrasound" link and I believed it. Then I searched for a "wedding" thread and found this one instead. And rollerblading, haha.

    I almost believed that wedding thing here until I clicked that ultrasound link, nice prank.

    I got suspicious about the time Moonie and Russ claimed they knew nothing, yet after few posts they catched up with other staff members. So...

    ...I set the trap. Image I posted was hosted on my server, so I could easily checked in server logs who and from where tried to access it. And while everyone pretended to be at some undisclosed location all seemed to post from home. Monique posted something - and just before she posted someone form chello.nl fetched the image. Before Ivan posted image was fetched only be people with US reverse domains and by someone from UK and someone from Finland. IIRC Zapper posted something and just before he posted someone from IL fetched the image. So it seemed like there was something fishy about whole story.

    I didn't even look at the ultrasound, I wasn't fooled. I don't believe anything I hear today.

    You're too clever!

    I was almost falling for it. Well written Greg. I found it too suspicious that so many PFers had been able to gather. The end blew it and the URL of the link confirmed it.

    Oh man. You got me. So when is the real wedding?

    I felt that something was fishy about that whole trip. Never figured it would end like this though, very well thought out guys. Definitely had me fooled for a few minutes when I started reading that little story.

    I'm glad we managed to fool at least some people. We were starting to worry it was getting too obvious when we had those miscommunications about who was and wasn't supposed to be at the wedding.

    Yes, that was the moment when I get suspicious. But your later random comments (sun burnt Berkeman, Greg editing his post and so on) were perfect. I guess you had a lot of fun just playing your roles :biggrin:
     
  24. Apr 1, 2010 #23
    The bridge you went rollerblading under? Oh Greg.

    Nice joke you guys! The story was a hoot to follow.

    It's still too bad that berkeman got so badly sunburned, though. :wink:

    Here is the first version that we agreed was too long and revealing.

     
  26. Apr 1, 2010 #25
    What do you mean there wasn't any wedding??? There are pictures and everything!!! :cry:

    I want virtual Bora Bora wedding cake!!

    You had me right to...

    Nah, Greg's got more class than that.
