Well, I guess your nickname fits you like a glove.
I think it was a good joke, give it a rest.
A joke has to be credible and not too obvious
A joke also has to have a punchline. But I'm done repeating myself. HAND.

Kind of like saying to someone: "Hey, I bought you a cake." "Really?" "Nah, just kidding. April Fools!"

Or, "Congratulations, it's a healthy baby boy!" "Really?" "Nah. April Fools! It was stillborn, and your wife died too."

Perhaps then it would be more fun to, on April 1st, sneak up behind someone and whack them on the head with a baseball bat, while screaming "April Fools, sucker!"?
Your cake analogy was spot on... but I'd still find it funny even though I really do love cake.

In the K-3 joke, nobody had lost anything. The status quo remained. The joke was on par with those fake winning instant lottery tickets people give mixed in with real tickets in birthday cards.

You other examples were way off; the guy hit in the head likely would have lasting damage and the stillborn baby example would be making light of a tragedy. Neither leaves the status quo in place.

If, in your mind, the tragedy of Pentax not releasing a camera that didn't exist the day before anyway is on par with losing a wife and unborn child, it may be time to stop waiting around and grab a FF from another brand.
