Surprising Statement That Is Untrue


april-fools-day-9As part of the annual April Fools Day internet festivities, Scrutiny Hooligans will proudly commit to making surprising and untrue statements.  We take national holidays very seriously here at ScruHoo, and it would be un-European of us to ignore this most vaunted of dates.  So be ready for some knee-slapping hijinks as we pull your legs, yank your chains, and twist your unsuspecting melons with hilarity inducing funnies.  It’s just too rich!
