April Fools

Saw any good ones out there today?

Updated: Added another one from The Register, and one from SecurityLab.


  1. I think that, perennially, my favorite is everyone who doesn’t engage in this idiocy. The vast majority of people writing for websites are unaware that repeating a joke that’s been used previously on half of the websites that ever existed is the opposite of humor, and have done this so many times that they’ve revoked all joke-related privileges. And I’m…uh…not completely in favor of practical jokes in general. 🙂

  2. I wasn’t too impressed with the ones from The Register, myself. The one from SecurityLab was the most interesting, I thought, because of that extra angle they had. 🙂

  3. From Bruce Schneider’s blog, http://www.caughq.org/advisories/CAU-2007-0001.txt

    I laughed. 🙂

  4. Not bad! I see it at least partially as a nudge about social engineering and how it is sad and amazing how much you can accomplish with it, without ever touching a company’s or person’s hardware/software! 🙂
