I keep hoping the joke was in November of 08 and someone is going to pop up on Fox news and say "April Fool!!!"

Have you hit Google's homepage??

They do a giant April Fool's Joke every year.

This year's kind of sucks, but eh. You can only hit so many home runs....

I had a randomly funny moment this morning, but the only thing playing tricks was my hearing/mind.

unless duder on the roof wasn't really from the insurance co.

I thought the Topeka thing was a joke, but apparently they have a LOT of people convinced

You should do some research on the response to Google's new "get High Speed Interwebz ANYWHERE by flushing this free fiber optic cable down your toilet" plan. I think it was 2007 or 2008.

April Fool's Joke - of course, but they received so many responses from people who wanted to sign up for this "free beta program" that it crashed Google's "backup" server they were using for the joke.

That is a LOT of traffic.... LOL

On Army.mil today, they published a realistic looking article about plans to move the Pentagon (the building & staff) to Kansas...

Some of the techier April Fool's jokes were pretty decent. My favorite was the RFC proposal for a Ccc field to the email RFC. A Cosmetic Carbon Copy includes the recipients in a field but they actually do not get the actual message. Similar to a Bcc, where the recipients get the message but they are not listed.
