Maybe I'm the resident oddball, but I really hate April Fools Day on the net. There are so many obviously fake pranks and press releases that they don't even work.

For something to work it needs to be believable, and so much of the junk companies and web sites pull on this day is so far-fetched and obviously fake that it just makes me roll my eyes. A good prank is fine, but the ratio of those to the lame ones online is something like 1 to 1000.
