Toshiba had a great gag new game system called the Shibasphere. Slashdot reported a whole days worth of false stories from across the web, and all the entries were in rot13 (letters shifted 13 places in alphabet). April Fools has to be my favorite day on the internet. It's a good reminder that most of the stuff there is made up, and can be made to look credible, even though often it isn't.

The best April Fool's Story IMHO was a recent story on CNN. The author of the story was speaking to Princeton female undergrads saying that if they didn't take a Princeton man as a Husband they would be doomed to marry somebody dull. The author sadly recounted how she married a non-Princeton man and was married to this guy for 25 plus years before she realized her mistake and divorced him. I wonder if to compound the mistake she ended up having to pay her former alimony?
