Happy April Fool's Day!

Yes, it's that time of year again.  To celebrate, here are some of the better April Fool jokes/advertisements/whatever that I've found so far.

First, what happens when you use gin in your sauna, instead of water?

Next, Burger King in France has a mouth-not-so-watering idea.

It's a worthy successor to their gourmet one-fry-at-a-time advertisement last year.

And finally, the good people at Vintage Wings of Canada have compiled a wonderful series of 'spoof' World War II propaganda posters, composed especially for April Fool's Day this year.  Here's just one example.

There are many more at the link. Very funny, and recommended reading.

I always appreciated Burger King's "left-handed whopper", and the number of people who didn't get it. It's right up there with the BBC's spaghetti tree harvest, causing people to write the BBC asking how they could grow their own spaghetti trees.

In Wyoming we had this fun "news" article from one outlet in the central part of the state.

You know I bet the BURGER KING - SINGLE FRIES™ would sell I've seen more stupid things sell but only if they cost a lot more than normal - price goes up and so does the sales.
