April Fool(ishness)

On this day, traditionally reserved for fooling friends, family, and… well anyone you want to, I decided rather than playing an elaborate prank on all of our readers, that I would share with you some of my all time favorite April Fool’s day Pranks.

These first few have been offered by google over the past couple of years:

2009: CADIE (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity) http://www.google.com/intl/en/landing/cadie/index.html

2008: TISP (Toilet Internet Service Provider) http://www.google.com/tisp/

2007: Google Paper http://mail.google.com/mail/help/paper/index.html

TacoBell bought the Liberty Bell in 1996 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taco_Liberty_Bell

NASA claimed to have found water on Mars… it was actually a picture of a glass of water on a Mars candy bar. http://www.nasa.org/water/

In Korea, there were many reports of Bill Gates having been assassinated… it caused the stock market to drop 1.5%

Burger King took out an ad claiming to be selling Left Handed Whoppers. People ordered them!

I couldn’t resist the rickroll on april fools day. Sorry to all of you who clicked on the candy bar link. 🙂 (And if you don’t know what rickrolling is… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RickRoll)

Sarah and I have decided that we would not prank each other. April fool’s day is for fools. I hate it. I have my reasons. (Ok so in 7th grade, the girl who broke up with me, told me she wanted to be my girlfriend again. At the end of the day she said “April Fool’s!!! Loser!”) I refuse to be fooled again.

Do you guys do the April Fool’s thing?

    I hate April Fools too! A friend sent me a super mean text message yesterday about how she never wanted to hear from me again, and then was like “just kidding. April Fools” I was so upset I felt sick to my stomach before she said April Fools. BOO!
