Awesome April Fools Pranks!

I just heard about what Google is doing for April Fools! They are turning Google maps into a Pokemon game @_@. TOTALLY AWESOME!!!

....or maybe it's just a prank. Either way, I hope I get to play!

Looks like you need the App. I don't have it...

I have my own thing planned for April Fools. My boyfriend and I are usually with each other during classes and we walk together in the halls, so we're going to spend the entire day apart and not talk to each other to make everyone wonder what happened.
I also have giant fake dollar bills. They're like the size of my arm. People tend to ask to borrow money a lot, so if anyone asks I'll give them one of those.

Anyone remember Youtube's prank last year? That was a good one. I hope they do something funny like that again.

Just went hunting for pokemon in Reykjavik... no luck. Do you have to be zoomed in at any particular distance? Because no way can I scroll through maps as zoomed in as it gets for ages on end, Especially when I don't know where anything is already.:P (But I got one in Copenhagen! Yay!)

TV Tropes seems to have gone the parody-of-Clippy route, this year.

ThinkGeek have the usual list of fake products (one of which is a stealth advert).

I haven't seen anything on dA yet...oh, wait.

I've counted at least 3 pranks on Google so far. They're getting good.

I got an email today requesting a phone interview for a job I applied for last week. If it turns out to be a prank I swear I'm going to cry.

Psh, whatever happened to taking every pair of pants they own and tying the legs in a ridiculous knot?

Baby powder in the hair dryer is a classic though.
