Happy Monday, Potato Nation. Whether you spent the weekend letting out some built up anxiety or fighting your way out of retirement, we can all take solace in the fact that most of us probably emerged unscathed from what was a prank filled April Fools Day yesterday. I, for one, was not so lucky. You see, I was unaware that yesterday was in fact April Fools Day. My ex, on the other hand, felt it would be funny to inform me that she was pregnant, and that the child was mine, only to send me a text at 12:01 a.m. stating the opposite. No one will miss her.
Speaking of people that found themselves victim to a good old fashioned AFD ruse, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans was recently the target of a simple, albeit clever prank last weekend during an autograph signing session. One fan, who must not be able to purchase underwear due to the size of his massive balls, decided to ask Evans to autograph the above photo depicting his brutal knockout loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC 98. Considering Rashad’s well documented sense of humor, you’d think he could have a good laugh at his own expense.
You would be wrong.
As you can see, “Suga” is not so sweet when the joke is aimed at him. If the man who was not only willing to make fun of a former UFC champion face to face, but then ask for an autograph afterward is reading this, send us your name and information, and in 10-12 months you will receive a free CagePotato t-shirt.
While we’re on the subject of April Fools, or really, just fools in general, check out Bob Sapp’s latest commercial (?) for Inoki brand laxative. We all know how odd, and often disturbing Japanese advertisements can be, so perhaps a video that consists of Sapp taking a shit while wearing a Johnny Bravo-esque hairpiece is nothing out of the norm for “The Land of the Rising Sun.” Why their commercials can’t just stick to some animated babies participating in a poop-off like we do here in normal society is beyond us, but who are we to judge?
Sapp, who is already set to be crushed by Soa Palelei in April, has reportedly already lined up a fight in May against Mariusz Pudzianowski under the KSW banner. Not that it will, but let’s pray it doesn’t go the distance.
If you’re still looking to kill sometime before the mid-morning rush, here are a couple other videos from around the MMA blogosphere to keep you mildly entertained.
