I pretty much suck at pulling off April Fool's Day jokes. They either don't work or I end up giving it away by giggling. There are two past April Fool's jokes that stand out in my memory those as particularly brilliant ones.
First, April 1, 1996... the Taco Liberty Bell Hoax.
I remember hearing through all sorts of different media about this. We didn't all live on the internet then, so I'm not talking about viral videos and tweets... I heard this stuff on the radio, the news and by word of mouth. I remember figuring pretty quick that it must be a joke, but it was kind of amazing how mad people were until they heard it was a joke.
I'm pretty sure my second favorite April Fool's joke was last year, or maybe the year before.
It was the day when the comic website Funny or Die was taken over by Justin Bieber. I love the kid, I can't help it... and the videos he made for the fake Bieber or Die site were pretty damn funny. Unfortunately I can't seem to embed the main video that was on the page that day where the Biebs talks about how he bought Funny or Die. So if you haven't seen it follow this link. You know you want to hear him say, "Now who's old enough, bitch?" :)
Keep on Beliebin'!
