I love Google's new Infinity+1 storage limit on gMail, in honor of April Fools day. And gakker.com is a hilarious sendup of boingboing.com.

Anyone remember the 4/1/1997 NPR report on kids getting corporate logos tattooed on their earlobes in exchange for a lifetime 10% discount on company products? I nearly had to pull over my car I was laughing so hard.

My family used to get really into April Fool's gags. One year I put a rubber band around the handle to the sprayer hose in our kitchen sink and positioned it just so... My sister stood in front of the sink and turned on the water, and the hose sprayed water all over her!!! The next year she tried the gag on me, and forgot, and ended up spraying herself again.

My mom told me that when she was in school, she would put plastic wrap over the seat of the toilet bowl, stretched tight so there were no ripples and it was almost invisible. Girls would sit down to pee, and end up splattering all over. See, I always knew I was raised by Evil Overmom.

YaY!

Our mom's the best. Ow!

*zap zing explode*

Curses!

Lore might be a nutjob but Evil Overmom is definitely a classic in my book.

I wonder if that is why plastic wrap now comes in colors ;-)
