OT- Google April Fool's Joke


Check out this link. Click some of the links within it and read about it. It took me a moment to realize it wasn't real. It's linked off of the main google search page.

I so look forward to the Google AF joke every year...I actually checked at midnight to see if it was up yet (big geek!)

I was at work this morning, and I saw a different one (American server at work, Canadian server at home) about being able to get all of your email printed and sent you to you snail mail!

This is my favourite part:

Everything on this page keeps cracking me up too!

I LOVE GOOGLE. They do some funny stuff.

Exhibit A:
Click Here. Read directions... particularly #20.

Exhibit B:
Click Here. Zoom all the way in.

Google Rocks.

That 's great!!!!!!! I really like the Trickle, the #2 and the Royal Flush. I also like the one with the pigeons that are behind Google's successful searches.

I love April Fools!!!!!!
