Diesel, did you have something to do with this?

Oh those cutups over at Google... will the hilarity never end?

Check out the hysterical shenanigans those comic geniuses pulled off for April Fool's Day.

as usual, click to enlarge

Bwa-hahahaha-friggen-HA! I can't remember the last time I've seen something so funny!

E-flux capacitor?!!! No way!

Those guys have to knock it off. My computer screen is ruined from coffee spit and it now feels like I have appendicitis from laughing so hard.

Huh? What's that? You think I'm being too hard on the old Googster? They're just trying to have a little fun?

Well... ok, you're right, I'll back off. In fact I have to admit, I kind of appreciate the fact that a giant corporation like Google has the ability to let its hair down once in awhile. Apparently they must have someone in there with a sense of humor.

Which brings me right back to my question for Diesel in the title...

What did you say you did there again?

Too bad it was an April Fool's joke. I could totally use that feature.

Don't forget to check out the new Google weblogs mentioned on the Dashboard - It has a fascinating new feature:

Don’t limit yourself to “reverse chronological” publishing. Our advanced Google algorithms put your best content at the top of your blog. Even if your later work goes downhill your previous posts will still shine.

Oh what fun we can all have.

My poor partner got taken in by this. In her defense, we saw it on Monday evening after a long, hard workday. The rest of youse were in bed by the time Google started trolling for poissons d'avril. When she started complaining about "Whaddaya mean, only ten?", I had to stop the train. "Hon, what day is tomorrow?" Sneaky that, conspicuously posting on 31 March ...

The silence of the Mattress Police is deafening.

for some reason in my small mind I'm failing to see the hilarity in that there thing you posted. I think it maybe time for me to go on vacation. vacation from what I'm not sure

Deb said...

I was so disappointed when I finally caught on...I was going to be sooo careful with my allotted custom posts.

Diesel said...

Ha! Sorry, I don't even know what building those jokesters are in. Here's something else funny they did: They added either sunglasses or a handlebar mustache to every employee's photo in the internal Google directory today. I got a mustache. So did the woman who sits next to me.

Michelle said...

If only my work were that fun.... Or my life for that matter :) Man could I use some backdating on certain things. This is the third one I've fallen for today. Shame on me!

the frogster said...

Dude, you're right. That smells like Diesel all right. BOY, THOSE FOLKS AT GOOGLE SURE ARE FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING! (You never know when they might be listening.)

Karen MEG said...

That was cute... I'm so out of it i didn't even see it and if I did I would totally have fallen for it.

Moron, I am.

Smells like Diesel's work, fo sho.

I think he doth protest too much.

Jeff said...

kathy - No kidding. Wouldn't that be sweet.

mylhibug - Somehow I missed that one. Poop.

amoeba - That's funny. My son (the computer genius-nerd) fell for it too.

doozie - Ask Emmers. She'll explain what's so funny about it.

deb - Can you imagine how crazy that would be if they could actually do that?

diesel - The employee cafeteria... I bet that's where you work.

michelle - I've never liked April Fool's day for just that reason.

frogster - I thought so. It does have his particular style of humor.

karen meg - Yeah, it actually was kind of fun to see. My son put a Firefox plug-in on my home computer that screwed around with the vowels on web pages, and kept sending you back to previous pages everytime you clicked on something. Then he went to work and didn't tell us how to get rid of it. Wise@ss... I wonder where he gets that from?

jenny - Agreed!

I enjoyed that one when I logged into my gmail. I also liked every featured youtube video leading to Rick Astley. Jammin' to the 80's all day! MPR's marketplace had a good one, too. Check out the podcast for giggles.

Julie Pippert said...

Luckily? We've got you at our backs. or on our backs, or we've got your back or geez louise something about backs!

VE said...

That's very clever. I can see a lot of uses for that kind of functionality too. I think Diesel is too busy writing his book; it was probably Grundir messing around with web code again. Wringwraiths can be so unpredictible!

Jess Riley said...

Pssst: i just tagged you.

Theresa said...

I want that too! Maybe if Diesel were to have something to do with it, it would work. Come on Diesel, we all want Google Custom Time.

Groovy Mom said...

Ha! Yeah, I saw that too. Funny!

In Guild Wars on April Fool's Day all the characters turned into stick figures. It was funny seeing all those stick people doing battle.

Julia said...

Oh, man! I saw that but didn't click on it--I really thought it was an actual feature! Am I stupid? I hope not. So why is everyone laughing but me? Shut up!

The Holmes said...

I saw that too, and I thought to myself, "what a totally pointles feature, there's so many flaws in that, and probably wouldn't hold up in a court of...wait a minute." Yeah, they got me.
