How about them Google hoaxes?


Recommended Posts

I think it has become a tradition for Google to make some almost believable hoax every April 1st. The first one I discovered was Google Gulp! Beta. This year, they have Google TiSP.

Why don't we try to make our own Google spoofs...

For April 1st I took my mom out to lunch....

While eating, I told her I was cheating on my wife (through tear filled eyes), and that I didn't know what to do and she was the only person I thought would understand....I waited a second......Then I yelled APRIL FOOLS!!!

Now, I understand that I am a very, very, very bad person...

I put a paper on my flatmate's PC screen before going back to my parent's house for holidays, telling I broke his computer and I'm very sorry 'cause the disk burnt, and such.

Later on IM:

Did you liked my april fool?

I was shouting alone in the apartment, people thought I was mad...

:)

I'm bad too.

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

I like doing the classic prank of taking a screenshot of someone's desktop, set it as the background, and then hide the toolbar and all icons. Works well on someone who doesn't know about screenshots. :)
