Two years ago, I had a great April Fool's Day prank in mind. I thought; what if a Japanese company had been brought out by an American one? And, in a stunning reversal, what if it was a movie company, in this case, Toho Company Ltd., maker and owner of Godzilla and other Japanese superhero movies, as well as the company that Akira Kurosawa had made his movies at for thirty years? And what if it was the company that owned Paramount Pictures, Viacom?
I posted the prank at the BBS of a Star Trek site, and expected people to be wowed by what happened; needless to say, it didn't go off at all. I'm still going to present it to people, however.
