This has always been one of my least favorite days on the calendar. Not so much because of your friend's or family's attempts to fool you, but because entire companies are now fine with getting in on the act.

I recall one particularly cruel April Fool's joke from Mattel. 

Some of us at He-Man.org had been clamoring for some time for them to FINALLY produce a "Fearless Photog" figure. If you're unfamiliar with "Fearless Photog", here is a Squidoo article I created some years back regarding him (the main source, www.fearlessphotog.com, is no longer around). 

Anyway, one year Mattel announced they would be premiering the figure as part of their "Masters of the Universe Classics" line of collector toys. 


This was, of course, an April Fool's joke. It was very obvious from the start. But it still rubbed salt on the wounds of those who wished Mattel would finally live up to what they had promised nearly 30 years prior. 

Well, they did actually release a "Fearless Photog" figure a couple years later ( I own 7 of them still in the box, and 1 loose ).


 They even took the time to contact Nathan Bitner (his creator) and interview him regarding the release of his creation at long last. So, in the end, they knew they would be satisfying those of us who desired the figure... but thought it would be funny to tease us first.

 

This is why I hate April Fool's Day now.

I remember a few years back, I saw a Legend of Zelda movie trailer on April Fool's Day. It looked so real, but of course it was fake. Good joke, guys!

Ahh dude! I love April Fools Day!!!! Except I don't have as many people to pull pranks on these days. We used to get REALLY creative with the pranks back in high school. Once we had another kid convinced that one of the teachers was going to ask him out after school. I can still see his face as we walked out the front doors and he was standing like a dope outside waiting. Then we yelled April Fools as my friend drove us by front on our way out. Man I miss those days.

I liked how last year, Google did an April Fools joke on an 8-bit Google Maps for the NES.

Google thinks they are so hilarious.

Today I am checking out my Google Analytics account and I see that 41 people are on the site from ONE place.

Wanna know where that "place" is? See for yourself:



Ha, ha.

The mayo jar prank is hysterical! My all time favorite corporate prank though was the Taco Bell prank about sponsoring the Liberty Bell. Taco Liberty Bell.
