It’s April! You know what that means - April Fools Day jokes.
A local chapter of Improv Everywhere staged a five-minute Flashmob Freeze in Brisbane’s Queen Street Mall at 1pm. It was all over the local media. Well done, folks.
The Fake Resignation
Scotty blogged that he had resigned from Microsoft and was off to Pixar. For a second there, he really had me going.
The Comic Circle
• One of my favourite web comics, xkcd (www.xkcd.com) redirected everyone to another really good comic, Questionable Content (questionablecontent.net).
• Questionable Content redirected everyone to Dinosaur Comics (www.qwantz.com)
• Dinosaur Comics redirected everyone to xkcd.
One poor soul had all three comics bookmarked close to each other and thought that his Firefox was playing a practical joke on him.
The Funniest Joke of All
The funniest joke was one that Randall didn’t even have to write. At xkcd, all the comics are numbered. The last comic published before April 1 was number 403 at http://www.xkcd.com/403/. The next cartoon published after April 1 was number 405 at http://www.xkcd.com/405/.
Why was number 404 skipped? That’s right, have a look at http://www.xkcd.com/404/. HTTP Error 404: Page not found. HaHa!
