Regularly-updated listing of today's April Fools jokes on the web. Add 'em if you've got 'em.
Anybody know the origin of April Fool's day? We already have a post about the greatest hoaxes of all time, but doesn't anybody know WHY we hoax and trick? I won't tell you why here....but I find it funny, what with the current jingoism and all, that it comes from France...after you digest that first link, read more at urbanlegends.com.
Remember everyone tomorrow, April 1st, is Make Fun of Dick and Lynne Cheney day, (because Neal Pollack said so). If you run any kind of website or publication and have the power to mock, belittle or poke fun at the second family, it's your patriotic duty to do so.
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!
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 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]
