    The 2010 International Pillow Fight Day will be celebrated in Los Angeles at Pershing Square on Saturday, April 3.

    Well, it is one way to celebrate April Fool's week.

    Some people switch the sugar and salt in the work cupboard. (Bad.) Some people wear their pants inside out. (Good?) And some people gather together every early April to hurl cushions at total strangers.

    Total strangers who have signed up for having cushions swung in their general direction. Yes, it is International Pillow Fight Day, and, like last year, Pershing Square will be the scene of all the soft-padding mayhem.

    Why? Right. Um. It feels like a hearty "because" is in order here.
