If you tried to get directions on Google Maps a few hours ago, you saw this Oregon Trail-esque map instead of the usual 21st century design. That was just Google playing a good old April Fools’ joke on you.
Now I know what an 8-bit map is. Educational pranks are the best pranks. Thanks, Goog.
I always forget about April Fools’ Day — which is tomorrow! — until someone decides to play a joke on me and I’m left with nothin’. And even if I do remember, I’m usually too lazy to go through the whole rig-a-ma-rol of planning and executing a prank of the caliber that April Fools’ Day requires. But one day, one sweet day, I will know what an April 1st victory tastes like. (via Mashable )
Do you guys play April Fools’ jokes on your friends and family? What’s the best April 1st prank you’ve pulled on someone or someone has pulled on you?
