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.

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?
