A day in the sun for practical jokers

I can't believe that it's the last day of March and the TechRepublic community doesn't have a slew of April Fool's Day pranks up their sleeves. Earlier this morning, I posted a discussion starter surrounding this story from News.com: "April Fools' Day is coming—beware of your browser."

Here's a brief summary of the article and the question that I left with TechRepublic members: "April 1 has become a day when dozens upon dozens of good-natured online hoaxes are perpetrated each year. Thus, people would be wise to smell-test just about everything that pops into their browser on and around April Fools' Day. What's your favorite April Fools' Day prank?"

So far, the discussion has only generated two responses, but I have a feeling that there are more tricksters out there who have some classic stories that just beg to be told. Please post your best prank in the discussion or add it as a comment to this blog entry. I look forward to some humorous reading!!
