April Fools Thread

So the worst day of the year, if you spend any amount of time on the internet, is coming tomorrow. I Hate, hAte, haTe, hatE April Fools Day. For every well done, funny joke there are a thousand poorly thought out pranks and hoaxes.

This is both a warning to be very skeptical of anything you read on the net tomorrow, and a place where you can post the best and worst of the efforts out there.

As long as you don't take anything seriously tomorrow I don't see the harm (unless pol cause physical harm).

Masses of stupid people believing stupid things tomorrow deserve fooling.

I look forward to blizzards usual jokes and the occasional well done joke and ignore the rest.

I think the best joke was the Molten Core for the Atari from Blizzard, and the Deckard Cain Rap

Google, Blizzard, ThinkGeek, and maybe xkcd are the ones off the top of my head that can be entertaining.

I read the Youtube title as "Deckard Cain Rape" and was afraid to click.

I really enjoyed the IGN 2008 April Fool for Zelda.
It looked badass and could've been legitly good.

God, I did not realise there were such a bunch of kill-joys here. It's not like anyone with sense takes it seriously. Sure there's tons of un-funny stuff, but there are always a good few amusing things.

The 1957 April Fool on the BBC was bloody awesome, and fooled loads of people.



Many people apparently called the BBC to find out where they could buy a spaghetti tree.
