    Talking What Web April Fools jokes have you found?
    Ever since I've gotten involved in marketing on the Internet, I've always looked foraward to the pranks on April First. I've particularly loved the ones from Google. Here's the first one I've found this morning...

    Pay Per Tweet from Problogger Darren Rowse

    What have you found today?

    Cafe Press sent out a hilarious email about them branching out into the dating service market. Had me going for a few seconds.

    Flying Penguins
    The BBC Flying Penguins Video. Nicely done and rather funny to watch them hop along and finally take to the air

    Cheers

    Not near as funny as their 2002 remake of the home page. http://www.pandia.com/sw-2002/11-god.html

    A New Zealand newspaper ran an ad for a liquor company that asked readers to lick the paper, which was supposed to taste like wine. One reader said it tasted like paper...

    I think Windows played an April Fools joke on me. I left my office to let the dogs out and when I returned it was running CHKDSK. Then it rebooted my machine. Now my taskbar's changed. Bother.

    Found this on del.icio.us
    Found a pretty good list of April Fool's on the web:

    I like the uk.youtube.com switching all the videos for rick rolls, though without the browser lock.

    Is the a joke or a real idiot?

    The ad on craigslist:
    http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/pho/621995076.html

    The link in the ad for said images NSFW (they may believe tinyurl is masking the actual address)
    http://www.tinyurl.com/33x2l2

    The site the images resides on:
    http://www.recoveryelite.com/

    I found their company calendar and it looks like everyone is at a retreat until next week:
    http://www.recoveryelite.com/calendar.php

    If this is for real then where is this guy getting the images from?
