April Fools in the Blogosphere and Podosphere

Luckily for us all, April First is on a Sunday this year. I hope this means we’ll see fewer stupid posts about how Podshow is buying Leo Laporte or how Digg is donating all its revenue to the Vatican or whatever. I can’t remember the last April Fool’s joke I saw that was actually funny or that I really bought for more than 3 seconds. Fingers crossed.

Update: The lucky loser for the first one I saw (there are no winners in this) was Supr.c.ilio.us. It should be noted that this is the least funny post I ever remember seeing on that usually amusing site. I hate this day.

Update #2: Make Magazine is loser #2. Sigh. Meanwhile, Michael Geoghegan echoes my stance.

Update #3: Rogue Amoeba and Scoble too?

Update #4: Sweet god, I was trying to be redonkulous in my original post but Leo Laporte made almost exactly that post except with G4 instead of Podshow.

  1. Last year, Coverville had me going for about three songs before I realized that Stairway To Heaven was not a cover. In my defense, I listened to that show about five weeks after it came out. I remember thinking “Wow, somebody fed Brian a load of crap.” before I went back to the beginning of the show and paid attention to the date.

    I also hate April Fools Day because I had to call a co-worker today about the Daylight Saving Time thing and I had to preface the conversation with “This is not an April Fool’s Day gag…”
