Everyone's a comedian ...

Ah April Fools… this is the time of year I like to find an unsuspecting teenage girl in the mall parking lot and kidnap her with chloroform. I then rent a seedy motel room in the middle of nowhere and create a convincing latex scar on her stomach. I proceed to spill fake blood all over the room and write “It’s inside you” in giant letters on the wall. Then after she wakes up and finally stops screaming, the camera crew hops out of the closet and we all have a good laugh. Except for poor old Uncle Marty, may he rest in peace.

But unfortunately the malls close early on Sundays, so instead I am going to do you all a favor and create a tidy little list of what the rest of the web is up to today. And by rest of the web I mean Google, Blizzard, Bungie, and Team Xbox. Jump the click to get your Fool's on.

Google has a pretty good sense of humor, and why shouldn't they? They're rich biatch! They used today as an opportunity to launch their new FREE internet service, and also to add an additional zoom level to their Google Moon feature. Best of all, they now offer transcontinental maps that make going from Chicago to England a breeze. Thanks Google!

Blizzard is also known for their April Fool's shenanigans, and aside from today's earlier stunts, they also changed their forums around a bit. If you're not a WoW junkie, it probably won't be funny to you. At all.

But even anti-Haloists will appreciate Bungies upcoming Pimps at Sea movie. Of particular interest is the leaked pages from the script, complete with notes from Bungie suggesting they may have gotten a little too Hollywood for their own good. 

Finally, Team Xbox has taken the 'Lords day off' to report on some major breaking news. Click the headlines to learn you some knowledge:

Microsoft announces HOMEless.

Sony announces global recall for PS3.

Duke Nukem Forever, finally...

Alright, that wasn't really a list, I just like to hear myself type. Sue me. So, what were the best gags / stories you encountered today? Send them my way and we'll make a sexy time together.
