April Fool’s Jokes
April 1, 2012 by staff
April Fool’s Jokes, The first day of April often sneaks up on us. It isn’t until you sit on a whoopee cushion that you realize it is, indeed, April Fools’ Day. But whoopee cushions and ketchup-covered “severed fingers” are pranks of the past. Over the last decade, the Web has become an increasingly popular place to play April Fools’ Day pranks, tricks, and hoaxes.
Though there have not been any War of the Worlds-type freakouts from these Web jokes, it’s often easy to be fooled. Companies like Google, YouTube, Hulu, and Funny or Die are known for their yearly April Fools’ Day tricks. ThinkGeek posts products-a Tauntaun sleeping bag or the iCade, an arcade for your iPad-that leave us wanting them for days after.
Sometimes, the joke’s on them as many of the products have received so much interest that they’re actually produced and made available to buy. Even non-tech companies like Whole Foods and Starbucks have punked the Internet. (We were taken in by venti-delivering baristas on scooters.)
But Google is the king of April Fools’ Day hoaxes, providing more than a solid decade of Aprils with gesture-based Gmail, name changes (to Topeka, no less), and a lunar research center.
