It's already April 1 in some places... anyone run into a great, well-done gag this year?

Docstoc ran this article on the best from the past.  They mentioned some good ones I hadn't seen before, including this one from 2008 and this one from 1957(!!), both from the BBC.

Wonder what Google has in store?

Netflix streaming has a new original show they added today. It's described as a "Momento-like thriller." The title is simply Sizzling Bacon.

Yes, it consists of nothing but a closeup on a cast iron skillet with 2 strips of bacon frying. It would have been funnier had I not already seen their Christmas-themed Fireplace For Your Home. The description made me look anyway so there is that.

They haven't got a word out of me since

Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of ''crackpot'' than the stigma of conformity.

I recommend reading through my Bio before responding to any of my posts. It could save both of us a lot of time and frustration.

Here's one:

Goat Simulator



Seems to really be a playable game (though I haven't bought it to find out). The reviews are pretty hilarious. And the trailer is a parody of this Dead Island trailer:



Goat Simulator on Steam or on Humble Store

Yesterday I was uploading some photos of a hiking trip last summer to a Google+ album, and when I clicked the finish button it asked me to tag the faces of people in the photos. One of them was a celebrity. I was like, "How the smurf did we get an image of him anywhere in there?"

Google photobombed my photo as an April Fool's joke.

Hmm, how 'bout a sun bathing babe contest?  The winner would be the one most captured by satellite look-down cameras?
