Check out the fantastic squash and stretch animation in this whimsical Flipnote by kenpa(ケンパ). That mushroom is clearly more than the foolish little fly can carry!
Only a fool doesn't look where he's going, as this hysterically funny, manic, Moped riding Flipnote, by kenpa(ケンパ) demonstrates.
This is the third win for Kenpac this week. Congratulations, and thank you very much for so many fantastic entries.
A doctor plays an April Fool's prank, on an unsuspecting patient, in this chuckle some entry by Kêithkash★.
An April Fool's joke from a wise cracking pig turns out not to be that funny, in this beautifully drawn Flipnote, by Mocha♥.
Foolish Mario, tries to portal through the wrong painting, in this 'laugh out loud' Flipnote, by IronEren.
That's definitely a 'game over' for the little plumber right there!
There's some wonderfully zany foolishness going on in this entry by King Mayro.
We loved the idea of uncontrollable glitching, and seeing it animated like this, makes it even funnier!
This week's topic is The Wild West. We're thinking of the classic Cowboys from the old Western movies. Of gunslingers and fast draw showdowns at noon, and old style saloons with player-pianos and chair smashing bar brawls.
Whilst Cowboys actually spent most of their time hearing cattle on ranches, the romantic visions portrayed in the great Spaghetti Westerns are very dramatic and a lot more exciting.
Why not check out these movies for inspiration, or a good audio track for your Flipnote:
Once Upon a Time in the West / High Plains Drifter / The Good the Bad and the Ugly / City Slickers (This movie has great reference for lassoing and herding cattle).
Feel free to focus on what ever aspect of the Wild West you like best. And as they say in the movies, "On the last strike of twelve, draw!
