| My Name Is Pearl Yelp Elite Party! »
Starting April 1, 2008, Yelp is proud to announce that every time you “yelp,” an angel gets its wings. Oh, we’re also in talks to purchase the Brooklyn
To paraphrase old Samuel Clemens, today is the day upon which we are reminded of what
we are on the other three-hundred and sixty four.

I still can't stop laughing! There's a big "WTF" on top of my head...

Is this some kind of joke? An attempt at subtle irony? WTF indeed!

Nice one, Yelp! I sure was fooled.

Giovannis located at 760 S. Coast Hwy 101 in Encinitas is the best place for homestyle Italian food. Baked Rigatoni with sun-dried tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, spinach, pesto sauce, chicken (optional) and mozzarella cheese baked to perfection is to die for.

Jeeezus let me get that fish hook out of my mouth. I was aghast, appalled, outraged. And it's not even 10am. Clearly time for more coffee. Nice one Yelps. :)

Although, I would have to admit it was one of the best April Fool's jokes pulled on me, that was downright evil.

How could you possibly leave out the best wholesome American food around?

Oh, I completely forgot what today was, very nice. I was soo disturbed I usually don't respond and had some really good (bad) words come to mind.

Starbucks? Wendy's? Dairy Queen? WTF?! Yah let's get the word out about these small local businesses! C'mon!

Hardy har har. Funny newsletter. But seriously, there are some spots in SF that, while certainly not local gems, are great hang-outs in their own right. Don't hang me for this, but I have a thing for The Cheesecake Factory. It's way too crowded, yes, but it's also perched high above Union Sq with fantastic views, as well as a tasty menu with a terrific bar. Great decor as well and a nice roof-top deck. Best enjoyed for a glass of wine and taking in the views, or appetizers at the bar.

What kind of nonsense is this? Everything you named here is a chain operation. Get your S#*T straight before you send out a mass emailing to Yelpers. This is insulting at best. Did these companies pay you to post them?
Oh wait... it's April Fools Day. DUH. I was about to launch into a tirade. HAHA! You got me with my mouth open.

I think this April Fool's joke only works on the most extreme food-snobs.
April 01, 2008 at 01:17 PM
I agree with the above poster. Honestly people, do you think your opinions are that important?

April fools day or not, it's still not right to call it "Frisco". Yelp writes: "What's a rose by any other name?
Yelpsters discuss a Frisco Institution"
*with barf reflex*
it's just nasty.

Thank God you were just kidding. Frisco doesn't exist. Neither does nopa for that matter.
