  3. Google is Sending Pokémon Masters Their Own Fancy Business Cards

    And they didn't even have to challenge the Elite Four!

    Most of us saw and participated in Google's elaborate Pokémon challenge game for April Fool's Day this year, but not all of us actually had what it took to be very best that no one ever was and actually catch all the Pokémon scattered across the map. That's why those select few got rewarded with a very special gift from Google headquarters: the coveted role of Pokémon master.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Who Is Watching Netflix’s Original Series Rotisserie Chicken and Sizzling Bacon?

    Anything's better than Hemlock Grove .

  11. That Time Burger King Won April Fools Day

    Well done: how I take my burgers and how I like my jokes.

    On April Fools in 1998, Burger King was serving two kinds of whoppers: juicy burgers, and a big fat lie. The company was temporarily crowned the prank champion after taking out a full page ad in USA Today announcing the release of an ergonomically designed, specially constructed Left Handed Whopper.

  12. I’d Watch Hulu’s April Fools Prank The Field If It Were Real

    Fox, feel free to make this a reality.

    It's April 1st, so every site on the web seems to be pulling some kind of prank. I even heard some jerks are using pictures of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen as the featured image on all their stories today. Hulu's April Fools effort is a trailer for a Terry Crews-centered Brooklyn 99 spin-off that I'd totally watch.

  16. Surprise! You May Have Been Mining Bitcoins for an eSports Company

    E-Sports Entertainment (ESEA) runs competitive video game leagues and tournaments. That's tremendous. They also sometimes bury Bitcoin mining software in their anti-cheating client without telling gamers. That's less tremendous. They got caught after users realized the anti-cheating client was overtaxing their systems. They're trying to make amends, but folks aren't pleased.

  17. DJs Suspended Indefinitely Over Chemistry Joke Florida Didn’t Understand

    We probably don't have to tell Geekosystem readers this, but water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. It can be written as H2O, or as dihydrogen monoxide which means literally "Two hydrogen one oxygen." When two Florida radio DJs announced that dihydrogen monoxide was coming out of their faucets, the Fort Myers area went bananas. The DJs have been suspended indefinitely and could face felony charges.

  18. Nuts to April Fools’, We Want to Buy Sphero’s Giant Remote-Controlled Ball

    It never fails -- every April Fools' Day, a product or two comes along that I would absolutely buy. This year is no different, and the product is the Peacekeeper from Sphero -- a 3-foot-tall, 150-pound plastic ball that can be controlled from your mobile device. Who would want a device that turns every day of the users life into a giant, perpetual game of bowling for humans, you might ask? Who wouldn't? Get a look at the toy every kid will be dreaming of this Christmas below, and remember: Kickstarter is already a thing. If we want to hard enough, we can make something like this a reality. I believe in you, people of the Internet. Let's make this real.

    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.

  20. Who Won YouTube? Find Out Tonight at Midnight

      What if YouTube wasn't a service to share videos online, and instead was an elaborate contest set up to find the single best video in the world? That's the premise of YouTube's new video, which features a whole host of YouTube celebrities talking about their "entries" into the YouTube contest. It's YouTube's April Fools' Day joke, but the video itself is pretty entertaining. It also got us thinking -- what is the best video on YouTube?
