April Crunch

April 1 has about half an hour to run, at least by local time. The best April Foolery I saw today was Michael Arrington’s revelation that TechCrunch had acquired FuckedCompany. Last year’s prize went to the Coverville episode from which I learned, among other things, that “Stairway to Heaven” was originally a Merseybeat song.

But the place at the top of my all-time list still goes to The Guardian’s 1981 spoof about the great British invention of the weather machine.
