that George W. Bush was the frontman of Poison for six weeks, then falling
for an April Fools' joke is probably the least of their worries.

I think there should be a policy immediately adopted for all language
Wikipedias, against non-legitimate articles on any day of the year,
including so called "April Fools Days". While I'm not against humour,
stand to serve no purpose to the project.
