Or, where to find the best bit of boffo and buns on April 1st in Victoria, B.C.

The Creative Loafing Institute is pleased to announce that a great giggle gathering will be held on the occasion of April Fools' Day, (in what is generally known as the "granola and grinning capital" of Canada -- Victoria, British Columbia).

Those wishing to partake of the piffling piece of puckery may drop by for a bit of buffoonery, (provided of course they come suitably attired in some foolish or funky fashion statement, wear a saucy smile, and consume a smattering of snickers or pig out on a "meal of mirth").

This is a do-it-yourself evening of drollery, so those who attend should bring along anything designed to make lollygaggers and leisure-challenged folks laugh out loud, roll on the floor, or titter tastelessly (at least for a few hours on this often forgotten day of frippery).

All manner of creative and quirky contributions to the "Grin Bin" will be accepted including a mirthful memo you'd love to send to your buttonhead boss or cat-napping colleague, or demonstrating how to build sandcastles in the air without any budget, supplies or time.

If that's too difficult just bring along a sample of your titillating talents -- be it dancing with your two left feet, doing zany zodiac readings, doodling/droodling, (finger) painting, playing the glockenspiel or a fast game of 'Rock Paper Scissors', singing sucky-face songs, sculpting with playdough, snapping funny photos, telling tacky tales, or amazing everyone with magic stuff like touching your toes, twiddling your thumbs and wiggling your ears all at the same time etc.

Admission is free, but giggling guests are strongly advised to empty their piggy banks so they can purchase things that will fill their tummies, perhaps boggle their minds, and more than likely leave them wondering what wizardesses do for a night off.

DATE: Saturday, April 1, 2006

TIME: 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

PLACE: Ogden Point Cafe, 199 Dallas Road, (at the Breakwater) in Victoria, British Columbia.


Note: word has it that a very vintage vixen or voluble vegetarian vamp may make a special guest appearance -- stay tune for more at the home of the Quipping Queen.
