Open Thread: Best April Fools items…

by David M. Smith  |  April 1, 2009  |  3 Comments

Ah, April Fools Day. One of my favorite days.  I love the smell of sarcasm in the morning…

Thought it might be nice to keep an open thread to comment on what we’ve seen that we like. So far, i’ve thought of two categories:

Best overall (to me, most sarcastic, timely, funny combination). thus far i’d vote for this one on yet another Cloud Alliance.

Best disguised (to me, the one i read through the farthest thinking it might just be real). Thus far the leaking of IE8.1 had me going until the end.

The day is just starting. i’m sure they will be more.

Have you seen any good ones? other category leaders?
