Boulder Man Finds April Fool’s Edition Funnier Since Legalization


Reader John Stuart ponders home delivery

Regular Blue Line reader John Stuart has had a “meh” reaction to previous years’ April Fool’s editions of the online paper. “It just wasn’t that funny,” said Stuart. “Except the bit about the height limits, that was really LOL.”

However, since Colorado voters approved legalizing small amounts of marijuana in November, Stuart finds himself laughing at everything. “It may be just a coincidence, but this town cracks me up now,” said Stuart. “And the Blue Line is a fine piece of journalism that hits just the right note every time. This year’s April Fool’s issue is particularly witty in a sort of subtle, urbane, Oscar Wilde kind of way.”

Stuart, a hedge fund manager who moved to Boulder in 2010, said, “I used to be a medical reader of the Blue Line, but now I just read it for recreation.” He added that he wishes he could get it delivered to his door.
