Best April Fools’ Prank You Saw Today?

That’s right, in case you were getting all sorts of confused, then angry, then excited, then face palmed today, we thought we should remind you that it is April 1. Google has done more pranks this year than we have seen in a while from almost every single one of their services. But even companies like Swiftkey, Sony and Toshiba have got in on the action. And while this year’s Fools’ fest doesn’t seem to have been as potent as year’s past because it happened on a Sunday, we still want to know what else you are finding or what has been done to you personally out there. It doesn’t have to be mobile related either, this is simply a place to share some good laughs. Because after all, April Fools’ pranks should be done by everyone in some capacity. No need to be stuffy and elitist on a day like this.

    Only Marines will get this: I told my squad that a new Maradmin 2012-04.01 had been passed authorizing rolled sleeves on desert cammies. They went apeshit.

    I went to the gas station and bought gas. I went inside and bought a scratchers ticket. It said i won $10 dollars. Took it to the counter and the guy scanned it and said the machine read that I had won 10,000 dollars. My heart started pounding and i was shocked. The guy called his manager from the back and to get the paper work for my claim. The manager came out with the paperwork, re-scanned the ticket and it said $10. The scan machine had hiccuped or glitched the first time it processed the card, and all I got was $10. The attendant said, “I wonder if this has anything to do with it being April first, and I realized it was april fools day.

    I left my house for several hours today and when I got back a friend of mine had put up Open House and For Sale signs all over our front yard and the street corners with balloons and everything. The price was “Name Your Price” Several cars had stopped by as we live on a fairly busy street corner in our neighborhood. It didn’t say April Fools anywhere but I knew right away who did it. He definitely got us good.
