I have little experience with Topeka, but from the once or twice I've been there: being surrounded by tens of thousands of unmotivated government workers sucks. It's the state capitol. The only industry there is state govt. Imagine a city where no matter where you are, it feels like you're at the tag office. It's not a nice place.
Sounds like they need to get their porn as fast as possible. Go Topeka!

Topeka.com apparently redirected to google.com which is kinda fun. Internet pranks on April 1st is great. Personal pranks on April 1st is fairly dumb. I rarely fall for shit and it just pisses off the prankster cause it deflates their hopes and dreams or some shit.
