Google’s April Fool’s Day Prank is Flush with Humor
So were you the victim of any April Fool’s Day pranks?

After viewing the photos, our dumbstruck confusion yielded to laughter after we realized that it was all an incredibly elaborate April Fool’s Day prank. With detailed diagrams, how-to photos and even a FAQ, it’s impressive how much work went into this prank—and we can assure them their efforts didn’t go down the drain.
