influx of lateness

Daylight Savings starts (ends?) on April first. Supposedly on April first. Couldn’t the farmers have picked a better day? I anticipate that we are going to be at the brunt of a nationwide April Fool’s joke:

“Ha ha! Daylight Savings really starts (ends?) on April 8th! You’re all an hour late! April Fools! Oh, and you’re all infected with foot and mouth disease too, got that?”

It is a poorly timed jest at that, given the current state of our economy. If nothing else, it will be this farcical one-hour discrepancy that will ultimately plunge us into a depression. The country will be in absolute shambles with the sudden influx of lateness.

I hope you farmers are happy.
