April Fools Rant

<rant>Oh, how I hate April Fools on the web. A fun day of pranking amongst friends in real life has turned into a) massive race to create viral traffic with the silliest products. They're either so silly that you spot them right away, or so clever that you secretly want them, only to be crushed when you find out it's not real. I'm looking at you, Boden's Marylebone Man-Skirt. What a waste of sartorial elegance! :) ...

or b) cleverly written articles that are a bit silly but definitely plausible. I hate these the most because many times they're not called out as April Fools or worse, they manage to propagate through the Web as real news weeks later. They certainly make my job that much harder (what can I say? I'm gullible) Sigh. Anyways, carry on your merry way, Interneters.</rant>
