It's Hunt-the-Gowk Day!

The Scottish call it "Hunt-the-Gowk Day." The French call it "Poisson d'Avril." In Latin America they call it "Tu Stultus Es." But here in the good old USA we call today April Fool's Day. And there's no town with more fools than Hollywood. If you need proof, look no further than NBC remaking the reality show ABC bombed out with "I'm a Celebrity...Get me out of here." Yep. It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel today.

Following is a list of pranks you can pull on your boss. Just remember to say "April Fool's" at the end so you do
n't get fired. Now run in to your bosses office and say...

"I real admire your ethics. What do I need to do to be like you?"

"Spearmint Rhino is on the phone. They wondered if you still want to leave your tab open since it's already been three days." [Note: This doesn't always work, as sometimes it's true.]

"I really like it when you stare at my cleavage. Can you do it some more? And don't forget about my butt. I've been doing the elliptical 30 minutes a day."

"The latte maker at Starbucks is broken."

"You have to give up your iPhone because we signed Kyocera to a multi-year marketing consulting deal."

"They're reassigning coverage and you now only get to work with Lionsgate." (or if your boss is in TV, replace Lionsgate with NBC.)

"You know what? Don't bother hiring me. I'd rather Temp because health insurance and paid vacation seem like too much of a hassle."

"I just saw your wife at lunch with John Mayer." (or Paris Hilton, depending on sexual preference.)

"I just sold my script to Warner Bros without an agent for $600,000 against $1.2 million. Yeah, that's the same one I've been trying to get you to read since 2007."

"Mandatory drug testing starts today."

I was hoping you would do a little write up on how embarrassingly stupid the Osbournes Reloaded was last night.

I am new in town and am trying to get on at the assistant level with anything in entertainment. How do I find out all the key players? Is there any advice for me as far as getting work?
