Anyone else reminded of a certain April Fool's Day?

I considered posting this in the Blue, but, really, how meta can you get?

I love it when I can mouseover the links and know what it's about. Heh.
Nice knitting.

I'm pretty sure that Metafilter wasn't the first website to see a wiki trashed by worthless hooligans, nor will it be the last.

But hey, carry on.

It may have been the first time, however, when the worthless hooligans were us.

Yeah, hooligans. Damn hooligans.

It's like a big bang, basically.

I believe the proper usage is: "they is us."

Additionally, I feel that I have learned that it's unlikely that Mike Kinsley reads MeFi regularly.
