Never had them pop up on my screen before now, I was typing a message and it just sorta appeared. You can even drag it around, its eyes following your cursor.

I was legitimately thinking my phone was possessed or had a serious virus!! Not going to lie!!

I have been googling “top hat with glasses and fish” or “top hat with glasses and cauldron” into google for the last 15 minutes trying to figure out which porn site I visited gave me virtual crabs......

Nice joke guys lol. Vlexia was DEFINITELY fooled 😂😂

I thought I had a virus. I don't think anything will top the time all staff became members and members became staff though. XD

Yeah, THAT was glorious!

But I love these. Am I the only one who plays with them when they appear? O:)

I was about to comment on how these made my day too.

Then a spider-hat with big googly eyes crawled into the corner of my screen, staring at me.. Judging me.. Weighing my soul!

And now I'm mildly unsettled and wondering what the true intentions of these hatty invaders really are.

I honestly thought I had a spider on my phone! :( But then thought about it.

These avatars have honestly made my day already! :D

I wondered where the 'stafflies' came from. :) That makes sense.

I admit I considered whether it might be malware, but the first one looked a bit 'bookish' for that.

This must've taken some effort. :) They look amazing, though distracting.

I think the funniest part of it is to imagine it's literally members of staff showing up to snoop while you're doing your thing.

Having a hat show up and stare all wide-eyed with wonder in a thread full of adult content is admittedly pretty hilarious.

"Oh my, what have we here?"

The speedy-ider did the same to me as well.

One workaround I've found to make the site usable if you can't use it with the April Fool's joke going on is to use an adblocker to block elements to block every staff member's avatar. Unfortunately the googly eyes are another element, on some even being two separate elements. But if you block all of those then you won't have to deal with them popping up unwanted until tomorrow.
