Let's make a pact to remember next year that Tony Levine loves April Fools' Day.
And even if you swore he wouldn't trick you this year, you might have forgot it was April 1 when Houston announced that it was changing its logo from the trademark UH and adding an O to the mix.
Here was the new look that Houston announced:
And man, it sounded like it could be real, given the school release and all, but then there was this fishy quote in the release:
“I’ve always thought that the word ‘of’ did not get the respect it deserved,” Levine said. “When you look at the way we speak and form acronyms - for example, the United States of America being U.S.A. - ‘of’ always gets excluded. And as I’m sure most people have, I’ve often times wondered why ‘of’ is spelled o-f and not u-v.”
Yep, April Fools' Day prank.
So next year, don't be fooled when Levine announces something. Fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us; fool us three times ... well it's just not gonna happen. Right?
