So, now that its April first what is the best April Fools joke/prank you've ever seen or pulled off? Sorry if this is already posted somewhere.

Well, since this is the FBB board I will tell you of a FBB joke.

Last year Miller Light opr Bud Light site did a fantasy baseball joke newspaper ad you can send to people.

I sent a joke ad of Helton hurting his groin and being out for the season to my friend in my league and then immediately traded some no-name flavor of the week player for him. It was sweet ;-D

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Every April 1, Google usually has a clever April Fools prank on their main search page. No matter how common this knowledge is, or how obvious that it's April Fools day, Google seems to get loads of complaints every year.

One year they had a whole section about how trained pigeons pecking at a keyboard are the key to their search results. Another year they announced that they were hiring for a new complex they were building on the moon (believe it or not, apparently they got more resumes than they reasonably should have).

This year, it's Google Romance

I'm going back a few years here, but in high school they printed the school newspaper on April 1 one year and all of the articles were jokes. The front page story was: Mandatory Drug Tests For All Students.

You can imagine the mayhem that followed.
