Unsuccessful Apr 11, 2016

If this was meant as a smart title for this topic, it has largely failed on account of the date of the event (1 April).

The error is too obvious not to be noticed, but the moment one also sees the date, everything becomes ambiguous, and most would refrain from turning up at the event, for fear of falling a victim to a prank.

So in my opinion, in trying to be smart, the copyeditor fell flat on his face, and ruined the whole event. Had the date been anything other than 1 April, this would have been a really smart title.
