Well, it’s that time of year again. The time when I get it into my head to come up with something, er… different for our April Fools Day puzzles.
My success rate for these is about 1 for 3. Which is not bad… if you’re a Major League Baseball player. But as a puzzlemaker, well…
Regardless, I’ve done it again. And this year, April 1st just happens to fall on a day in which I get all three puzzles. Meaning I can be 1 for 3 again :)
One of ’em is pretty straightforward, but still, I think, fittingly whimsical.
One of ‘em has the potential to be very cool. It’s actually an idea I had almost two years ago, but only got around to this year.
And one of them is definitely gonna piss some of you off. Heh, maybe more than some of you. But it’s another one of those ideas I wanted to try, and hey… it’s April Fools Day. You gotta expect some weirdness, right?
So… all of you grumblers out there, I’ll see you in a day or so. And don’t worry, I can take it.

So you think you can write? Write the best vertical “Tanga Rocks” poem and you will win:
$10 in TC (Tangacash guys! Learn the acronyms!!)
500 TP (those aren’t rolls of TP, these are Tanga Points!)
and most importantly –
At least one weeks worth of bragging rights!
What in this Tanga-World is a vertical poem you are asking? I have kindly constructed my own masterpiece to use as an example:
**Tanga Rocks Because:
T hey always have great product
A nd great customer service, too
N othing is comparable
G reat games out the wa-zoo!
A lthough I spend all my money
R ocking my Tanga-Tshirts is always fun
O ver my credit card limit
C ause I always feel like I won
K nowing there’s another deal every day
S leep will not come tonight, I’d say**
Notice that the first letter of every line spells out “Tanga Rocks”? That is what you are to create.
Submit your entries below in a comment and we will pick the winner on Monday.

In a few days, the NCAA will announce the brackets for the 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament. We want to have a little contest to see who can pick the most winners! You may be into sports or you may not, but with the help of Yahoo, picking is the easy part. Just go through and pick your brackets and we will see how everyone does against each other. The winning strategy in my group last year was picking the favorite colors of the team’s uniforms. Very scientific I tell ya!
First prize: XBox 360 with an NCAA 2010 Basketball game by EA
Second prize: $50 in Tanga Cash and a NCAA 2010 Basketball game by EA on the console of your choice
Third prize: a NCAA 2010 Basketball game by EA on the console of your choice
What do you need to do? Just click on this link and sign up for a Yahoo account. On Sunday afternoon the brackets will be announced and you can start picking your winners. Be sure to have the brackets picked by Tuesday night as the first game is on Wednesday.
After that, just follow along and we will see who does the best in our Tanga group!

Some Tanga members received multiple copies of the holiday email we sent out last night. It was caused by an unfortunate combination of a full hard drive, a misconfigured /etc/fstab file, and heavy load on one of our servers.
We are reworking our software to prevent reoccurrence of that bug.
