April Foolishness 2012
« on: March 31, 2012, 09:48:31 pm »
Everyone! It is that time of year! The time of jokes and such and stuff and things.

Let us collect what merriment we see around the internet this year into this thread for analytical purposes.
Let us do this because we can.

To get us started, it appears Google Maps is offering an NES quest view: http://maps.google.com/
and Google itself is offering really advanced search: http://www.google.com/js/reallyadvanced.html

And...these things seem less like jokes and more like things I just want to be real.

In any case, if you see anything else the internet is offering up for this year's funfest of joke-itude, please place it here for our viewing pleasure.


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Strange, I don't remember you being made of pork at any point in our mutual knowledge of one another.

Although I cant find a proper article on it, Cartoon Network brought back toonami for one night only and at the end Tom said "Next Saturday we'll be showing new".

The joke is that nobody slept.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

I hope everybody has put their order in for discs of all the videos on YouTube.

I got mine in Laserdisc, and shipped by freight.

Only $3,000,000!

I know!  We used to have such fun.  The good old days.

Also, more GoogleQuest stuff.

That comment made me think Google had some sort of Breaking Bad reference if you went to ABQ on Quest mode....

Lego, I am disappoint.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Erops, I am more disappointed you are not familiar with the classic-ness that is Bugs Bunny's non-"what's up doc" catchphrase.

Psh, w/e, clearly you guys haven't watched all of Breaking Bad cause it pretty much consumed my entire approach when someone mentions the southwest haha.

Here is one we all somehow missed. It will be removed today.

Valve's April Fools

If you miss it, it was a banner ad for Half-Life 3. If you clicked the ad, it took you to a GabeN trollface.
