LOL! I see it now...but being forewarned, I did NOT click on it. I thought maybe it was on the homepage, where I never go since I have my own account page bookmarked. Turns out I was just blind. LOL

I must be blind because I don't see anything next to the search bar.

I was wondering if this was a new feature and was checking on here to see if they were giving away something, but I figured that this was a joke!

I was amused.  I like this type of April Fool's joke.  Amusing, creative, and non-obnoxious!

It didn't work last night, so I'm glad the let it stay long enough for me to see it.  Very amusing.  I like a site that has a sense of humor!!
