2008 April Fools Jokes
Google does it again !
The Dotcom is at it again with "Gmail Custom Time" and (which purports to let users send e-mails into the past and consequently never miss important deadlines again) and "Virgle", a faux collaboration on an "open-source" Mars expedition between Google and Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic.
No Chair Fare
The Herald Sun, an Australian tabloid, published an advertisement by Virgin Blue advertising the 'No Chair Fare' offering standing room for half the price of the regular fare and free calf massages for flights longer than two hours. Visiting Virgin's website reveals the offers to be an April fools joke. Still hundreds tried to purchase standing tickets by contacting Virgin by phone.
