Best and Worst April Fools Jokes

1 Apr

Best Jokes:

Lonely Planet: Introducing a new line of travel guides written entirely in LOLcat. A spokesman reportedly said: “We lovez teh world. Kittehs want to conquer it. Iz a perfect match.”

Ikea: The furniture maker has been aggressively looking at “pet furniture needs” according to this YouTube video. They created the Hundstol, or a high chair for your dog. Call me crazy, but I think people would actually buy this.

ThinkGeek: The site unveiled a mini Apple Store playset. Complete with accessories, it even features Steve Jobs making a presentation. Again, people might actually buy this.

Hulu: Awesome site design makes everything look it comes from the mid-1990s. Complete with era-appropriate TV shows as well.

Ivar’s: So this one is pretty Seattle-specific, but hilarious just the same. Unless you’ve been bured in a hole for the last few months, you know that Starbucks decided to drop all words from its logo. Well, Ivar’s appears to have copied them with this latest brand redesign.

Carl’s Jr.: The fast food chain introduces us to the “Original Six Dollar Tofu Vegan Burger.” The company boasts, “Stacked high with lettuce, mushrooms, soy cheese and julienne carrots, these mouth-watering tofu burgers will take you on a wild ride to Flavortown.”

Worst Jokes

YouTube: Really only one here. So, for their April Fools prank YouTube decided to create a page that would enable the user to relive videos from 1911. As Gawker points out, every video on the site (formerly) allowed the user to click a “1911” button that would strip things of sound and add some weird music. For some videos, this was funny. For videos about 9/11 or the recent Japanese tsunami, this was horrible. Someone didn’t think through that one very much.  On a lighter note, they did produce a funny video in the theme.
