Aaaaand... we're back to our regular scheduled programming

Ok, ok, we're done -- Foxtoid.com has filed for bankruptcy despite its unparalleled coverage of corruption and non consensual forced sodomy in the gaming industry.  The co-branded venture made it into Mashable's Top 5 jokes of the day and a little love from Sony.  You can probably guess what brought this on: Like many gamers, we've had a bone to pick with Fox News since the Mass Effect scandal and wanted to use today's opportunity to make a statement and enjoy spoofing their sensationalist format. An eye for an eye, putos chingones! (I'm practicing taxi dialogue for our staff trip to Cancun this week).

Amidst the chaos we had a few user submitted gems too -- we encourage you to check out the April 1st Community Blogs, some which CTZ has been dutifully promoting.  I'd also like to share with you this letter to the editor from a concerned reader about the bizarre happenings on today's home page. Names have been removed to protect the innocent:

You know, I thought my IE was being mislead by a phishing attack when I landed on the Destructiod site – but it looks like the right site but some things have changed. What happened? The page looks like it was designed in the early 90’s – and every story somehow involves prostitution, masturbation, child diddling homosexuals, video game case rape scandals, sexing picnic tables - and the same two nerdy guys showing up over and over in one posting to the next – comment totals missing - the hell is going on? Was the site bought out by high-schoolers? Why is everything sucking all of the sudden? The hell is FoxToid – and why is it sucking so bad? Nerd uprising of some sort? Very disappointing.

We're unsure if this confused soul missed the date on the calendar or truly captured the spirit of things and single handedly one-upped us, but it was very entertaining either way.  Hope everyone enjoyed their April Fool's around the web and on our special edition of Foxtoid.  The domain name should continue to work for anyone that missed it.

What were your favorite pranks from around the web this year?
