Things We Saw Today: Lots of April Fools’ Day Gags

As they have become famous for, ThinkGeek.com rolled out a bunch of “new” products today. Unfortunately they’re all April Fools’ Day jokes. The one we’re most upset over? The Klingon Rosetta Stone. Because seriously, I’ve always wanted to learn Klingon. But also, the Unicorn Drinking Horn (pictured above) should go into production immediately. Only larger. Much larger.

Warner Bros. Is Doing a Movie Trilogy About Internet-Famous Cats. Screw Everything.

Really, Warner Bros.? Is the fact that we, as moviegoers, have already been subjected to Battleship and The Smurfs movies not bad enough? You and I need to have a chat. Info on the steaming hairball that WB is vomiting onto our screens is behind the cut.

An April Fools’ Day Round-Up Of the Tricksy Hobbitses Who Tried to Pull One Over On Us

Here at The Mary Sue a day of work involves hours of scanning our readers, which on April Fools’ Day equates to navigating a minefield of stories that may or may not be true. I feel like I’m in Inception—I need a totem or something to gauge what’s real.

A Lesson in Humility

April Fool’s Roundup: Mars Attacks! Play Is Not Real, Nor Is This Unicorn Recipe

Well, that’s just super disappointing. Remember that story we brought you on Friday about Mars Attacks! coming to Broadway, and how maybe — just maybe — this might not be a bad thing? Guess what?

Because the companies that “announced” the musical on Friday, IDW and Topps, provided the graphic above themselves. Thanks, guys.
