Google usually comes up with some pranks. Go to Google maps and in the lower left hand corner you'll find a Pac Man symbol. Put in a location with lots of streets, click on the Pac Man symbol and the streets become a Pac Man game. Pretty cool.

This is Hagerstown, MD.

And if you want to try your hand at reading backwards, try Seriously.

This was my favorite Google April Fools prank. Broadband Internet thru your toilet.

I don't know how "classic" this is, but Amazon posted their web interface from April 1 1999 today. Cute!
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
