I thought I'd start a thread collecting some April fools jokes from today. I just stumbled to one on YouTube. On any video's page everything will be upside down, including the video. They also set up this helpful tips page: http://www.youtube.com/t/new_viewing_experience

Another one is that Reddit (www.reddit.com) looks like Digg (digg.com) now. This is their announcement: http://blog.reddit.com/2009/04/long-overdue-update.html

So what have you found? There will probably be a lot more around once US wakes up.

I'm still hoping that Shearer managing Newcastle isn't an April Fools. God is back!

Also, I was wondering to myself if Shearer was an april fools, but there's nothing funny about Newcastle however you look at it!

Im pretty sure this isn't an aprils joke, at least i read it in many papers and an aprils joke spread on many is rare. I guess newspapers can be fooled aswell though.

These were good times.
