There's a wonderful tradition of April Fool's pranks and jokes on the Internet and today I thought it'd be fun for everyone to share your finds in this post.

I'll start off with the iPad Arcade Cabinet.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB
Corsair TX750W / Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 / SilverStone TJ05 / Scythe Zipang 140mm CPU Cooler / ASUS VH202T-P 20" widescreen monitor (x2) / XP Pro SP 3

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Lol, Razor Venom is the best one so far imho. Blizzard is being lame this year =.=. Wheres the World of Warcraft II videos showing new physics, DX11 GFX and 0 lagg due to programming bugs. Hell, they could have just said they are finally releasing a patch to fix all the lag and bug issues and will now have multi-GPU scaling, that woulda been a good one, course that would only be funny to WoW players for a minute then they'd be all pissed off.

Would be funny for a game developer to release an actual patch for a poorly coded game on April Fools day and say it fixes all the low FPS issues but in reality just make the patch include an FPS counter that says the game is running at 5x the actual FPS it is and say they fixed all the issues and it must be the hardware on the users PC.
