Who's having some fun today?

This past Wednesday in a Manhattan criminal court, the 8 Improv Everywhere agents nabbed in the “No Pants 2k6” Mission were found guilty of “Disorderly Conduct” and sentenced to the maximum sentence of 15 days in prison at the Riker’s Island Correctional Facility (five male agents) and the Rose M. Singer Center (three female agents). We have delayed making this information public for several days as their attorney was investigating the feasibility of an appeal.

(A lot of people are buying this one.)

Nice. I don't know how but the Fark one totally caught me off guard.

Cool. It's run by another MeFite.

You are quite welcome Urgo. I had a lot of fun with some of those. Thanks for making the list.

You realize, right, that the front page of MetaFilter is also an April Fools joke? Not only are the links all fake, the comments are too. This is not being written by languagehat but by Matt's MeFiBotTM. You have been pwned.

I'd put this on the front page, but I don't think they could handle getting slashdotted and mefid on the same day!
