A day that occurs every year and the jokes get better and better. I love that big companies take part in it. I remember years ago, reading a gaming magazine that was talking about a new video game coming out where the heroine was much like Lara Croft but topless during the whole game.
They had a 10 page spread dedicated to the game with interviews, story, plot, and pictures. It was great and I was pulled in. I felt the same way when I saw my #1 this year!
I did not feel like doing any joking myself, but I decided to make a list of my favorite "jokes" that I have seen today. This post will probably be updated as I see more - for now it's small and limited
So, Numero Uno
Google, you crazy Bastards!
Read the story, watch the Video and enjoy. Also, play with Google Maps and try 8-bit mode - it's awesome. Old School Dragon Warrior. There are even some monsters lurking when you explore enough.
I would seriously buy this the day it was released
Number 2 - Gary - White boy in the United States somewhere.
I knew this was fake right away because I was in the April Fools mode already. I also felt that it was too well written and not enough emotion to be entirely true. Also, I noticed that the blog was not written by Waffles (sorry bro). However I bit my tongue hoping that it would elicit many sympathy responses until the revel. It did get some and that made me giggle a little. April Fools jokes are hard to pull off as an adult because you've been hit with them for years and years - so a successful one makes me smile.
Oh Sweet Jesus I love you Del Taco
