Speaking of offering people free stuff... OpecInfo.com, a fake site claiming to be "The Internet's Best Gas Resource," appears to have fallen victim to its own April Fools prank.

U.S. population stands at 13,462

U.S. population stands at 13,462 With the April 1 deadline for returning Census 2000 forms finally passed, the Bureau of the Census announced Monday that the U.S. population stands at 13,462.       "We at the Census Bureau are shocked by the incredible decrease in the population that apparently took place in the 10 years since the last Census in 1990," Census Bureau director Kenneth Prewitt said. "A 1999 projection estimated the U.S. population at 274 million and set the annual growth rate at .95 percent. Yet from this latest Census count, we find that this projection overestimates the population by a multiple of 20,000."

Latest on the mcsweeneys.net takeover.

Latest on the mcsweeneys.net takeover. If this is a prank, it's already getting old. I keep hoping for some big humor payoff, but I'm the MTV generation--speed things up! Darnit!

Google Mentalplex

Google Mentalplex Google's pretty funny... Let's see how long that light heartedness lasts after The Great Ass of Corporate Opression sits on them.

I know this is starting to scrape the bottom of the April 1st barrel, but I WAS the first person to point out that the heading of the e-mail version of this writer's column is "D A N G I L L M O R O N T E C H N O L O G Y" (logical word breaks after DANG, ILL and MORON)

At this moment on Weekend Morning Edition, Scott Simon is interviewing wrestlers named "Amazon Rainforest Crunch" and "NRA", and Nina Totenberg is talkin' trash. Diggin' it!

5:15am April 1st 2000 in SF and still no April Fool's version of vivid's site.

5:15am April 1st 2000 in SF and still no April Fool's version of vivid's site. Could this really be the end of an era? Remember vBay (classic!) and v|net? I want some good parody, damnit! (Sorta like this, Matt -- well done.)

I can't tell if this is an April Fool's parody of a certain someone or not, but have a great weekend! I'm still digging!

This is one of the funniest office pranks

This is one of the funniest office pranks I've seen in a while. A few months ago, I proposed filling a coworker's office with ballons, but the packing peanuts are much better (and funnier). [stolen from brig]
