April Fools ... a few I spotted

The classic BBC April FoolI giggled when I heard that Christchurch Cathedral is to be pulled down next week due to structural damage and the site has been bought by a Russian businessman for a hotel and aquarium! (source: National Radio and Newsroom website)

What else, Scotsman banned from pub for farting, mummified fairies discovered and that's about it really ...

Oh, nice ones from Google: Gmail paper that archives all your email onto paper and, even better, their announcement of TiSP:
Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines.
