Default Which April Fool's gags did YOU fall for this year?

I admit that I fell for a couple April Fool's gags this year, both of them as part of online retailer email promotional emails that I get every other day.

Newegg.com's iBrite RGB processor, 100 cores, 1.4 PHz, $5K. Check out the reviews.

And also Monoprice.com's Monolith series cassette deck stereos, including the 80's over-the-shoulder boom box! Comes with modern electronics and BT connectivity. Only $1300! This one actually had me going until I saw the voice-activated "eat tape" function where you get to decide when the tape gets all tangled up in the gears and drive wheels!

Anything you fell for at first before realizing the date? Come on now, be honest!

the biggest gag I fell for this year was believing that happiness was possible. LOL

Does that mean I shouldn't believe this post of yours, as in you do believe things you see today?

Late last night I was online and it was already April 1st in the UK as I checked an F1 news site that said there as a development in China to build a giant motorsports complex where every F1 circuit on the calendar would be reproduced there. As soon as I clicked the title, it occured to me what day it was and realized it was fake.

Didn't fall for anything because come on.... it's April 1st

But, these two were my favorites. I would cut the **** out of some grass in my Duluth Romper while sipping on a couple tall crispy Naturdays.

lulz @ Duluth romper

Only reason why those two I posted above got me is because Monday morning 7 AM staff meeting, and I forgot what the actual date was.

this one actually got me for a minute, but this brewery has done a fried chicken beer, and I’ve had others with pho broth so I wouldn’t really put this past anyone.

Everyone's a ******* troll here. At this point it's just a race to see which family member dies of cancer next or when I just stop being a coward and suicide it out. I sure as hell know everyone's rooting and cheering on both +1 judging by the hellscape of this form and our brave new world.

Not everyone, but there are many. IB Robb and his mods value the trolls and liars. You are not required to agree.
