I'm up late tonight and I noticed that Google already has their April Fool's hoax up... a lot of the major websites do a hoax every April 1st. Sometimes the jokes are so subtle that you hardly even notice they are jokes! Like last year, I thought that Gmail Paper was for real.
(last year's Gmail Paper joke: http://mail.google.com/mail/help/paper/more.html)

So here is this year's-- Don't click the link if you don't want to be spoiled on the joke!

I always like the fake things thinkgeek.com posts every year for April Fools. One year they had caffeinated meat. This year I kinda like the Betamax to HD-DVD converter because I KNOW there are some old sk00l geeks out there who would want such a thing.

And this year, I got RickRolled by YouTube.

How about the Super Pii Pii Wii game? Lol! I had some of my friends convinced it was real this morning, and that I was going to make them play it during our next poker night!

I saw the Betamax converter thing and didn't even realize it was fake at first, sadly. It seems like just the fun thing ThinkGeek would have.
