The Second Best April Fool's Joke of the Day Involves Surfer Blood
Gotta hand it to tastemaker and trendsetter Carles over at Hipster Runoff for declaring "Pitchfork gives MGMT's Congratulations a perfect 10.0" today, but there was something in the tone of Citylink's April Fool's Day gag, Jake Cline's "Surfer Blood bassist eats sandwich, inspires trend," that kept us reading.
