    Cartoonists Bill Amend ("Foxtrot"), Darby Conley ("Get Fuzzy"), and Stephan Pastis ("Pearls Before Swine") appear to have collaborated on a little April Fools' gag on their readers:

    Foxtrot

    Get Fuzzy

    Pearls Before Swine

    Note - if you're seeing this after April 1, you'll have to navigate to the 4/1/2005 strips on the various pages.

    lol, thats funny.

    I think the best AF joke was when the cartoonests switched strips, so you had Bill Amend doing Family Circus, etc. That was hilarious! [​IMG]

    We get Get Fuzzy and Foxtrot in the local paper, and fortunately for us these ran correctly on 1 April as well.

    The Times Online ran an article suggesting the English Premiership was considering NFL-style playoffs, splitting into different "conferences" etc. Suffice to say for die-hard football (played with feet, not the "handball" you lot play) fans, it was a horrifying thought...

    That's not entirely a joke. If you check on Gmail.com, there actually is a counter that slowly is increasing the limit. If you sign in, you can see that currently ther limit is at 2054MB

    Geeks.com was selling a Round LCD computer monitor. If you clicked on the link, it came up and said April Fools. It was really well done with a lot of the details covered and everything.
