Some April Fools jokes are just too good

Chasing the Sunset's April Fools joke got a bit out of hand. The creators posted a very realistic looking Cease and Desist letter from the law firm for New Line Cinema, and the readers ate it up, and passed the link around. Eventually, writer Mithandir had to reveal the hoax early to stop readers from contacting the law firm or New Line Cinema.
Most April Fools "pranks" in webcomics are mere creator swaps, which has got a bit old by now, although they can be entertaining if done well. This one fooled people into action, which is what the tradition is all about. Good one, guys, but next time leave a few more clues for the gullible.
