  2. Dear Guest,
    If you've been around here for a while, you may know that @Vlad and I love a good April Fools' Day joke that we try to pull off yearly. Many times, our members forget and we get them, one time making everyone turn into Vlad, another year with a garishly awful new design, and another year no matter what button you pressed we alerted you that you requested your account terminated. It's always brought us such joy to have fun with you all, especially when we try to pull off a forum wide joke one day a year.

    Fields was known for his dry wit and backhanded stabs at people who he felt had slighted him.

    Probably referred to some friends or family, maybe his agent. I didn't find anything specific in a quick search. You might find some reference to it in a biography.

    I did find this interesting though:
