I guess it is understandable that some readers believe that the previous post, about a New Zealander who was sentenced to community service for falsely reporting he had been raped by a wombat, an assault that he said caused him to "speak Australian," is an April Fools’ Day piece. But, like pretty much everything here, it is true, or at least is based on what I believe to be a credible news report, even if the event itself seems incredible.
Around here, every day is April Fools’ Day, more or less, so it’s not really a special occasion.
