Please use this thread to share your favourite April Fools jokes that have made their way online, either from this year or the past.

My favourite of this year's crop has to be the advert placed by the Conservative Party in The Guardian:

Google Streetview in 3D? Has anyone got 3d glasses they could check this with?

This year xkcd.com stole the show for me.
Aren't you all entitled to your half-arsed musings...You've thought about eternity for 25 minutes and think you've come to some interesting conclusions...My kind have harvested the souls of a million peasants and I couldn't give a ha'penny jizz for your internet assembled philosophy
