The currently running April Fools day joke where by pages rotate / transition and constantly refresh is breaking the purpose of the site, making it difficult to use the site for its primary intended purpose (PHP language documentation).

Expected result:
April Fools day jokes should not break the purpose of the site. They should be amusing, but not intrusive. Google manage this, Stack Overflow manage this. Even Slashdot have managed this when they've run jokes in past years. It's not a  hard concept.

The currently running joke on is not amusing and breaks the primary purpose of the site.

The fix for this bug has been committed. Since the websites are not directly
updated from the repository, the fix might need some time to spread
across the globe to all mirror sites, including itself.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make better.
