April Fools Shenanigans


Each April 1st, the internet becomes a much more fun place to explore as the denizens, websites and even corporations try to either make you laugh or trick you.

This year is no exception, with Google taking the lead so far:

No more back pain from sitting at the computer. Now you can get back pain the old fashioned way


Google Translate for Animals app

Get a job at Google – as an autocompleter
