I had planned to write an April fools joke for all the 2012ers out there today but I have been busy with other issues. To me, and to many of my fellow Mayanists, the whole year and the 2012 phenomenon in itself is just a long extended April fools joke. In a year like this one and on a day like this one it will be hard to separate jokes from facts. 2012ers tend to have that problem. However, this year April 1 falls during the wayeb period in the haab, the so-called “unlucky” days. Take that as a warning (or whatever you want to interpret from it) before you make a joke today.
