I Pity The Fool…

Where do I begin?

Thought I might briefly highlight some of the most interesting April Fools on the web – feel free to contribute ones you’ve seen in comments…

There’s the sponsored funerals:

The Guardian publishing on Twitter – http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/apr/01/guardian-twitter-media-technology

The Sun’s one is average – http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2353120.ece

The Economist is opening a theme park – http://www.economist.com/world/britain/displayStory.cfm?story_id=13395767&source=features_box4

The Irish Times one actually has a lot going for it… http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/frontpage/2009/0401/1224243795000.html

And Gmail autopilot is a brilliant idea!!! http://mail.google.com/mail/help/autopilot/index.html

And Boards.ie have been taken over by Facebook… http://www.face.boards.ie/

Strangely, this story appears to be real…


Any more really, really good ones?
