Luckily, April 1st has almost been and gone and with it the usual slew of predictable online japes and jests. It's almost got to the point where it looks like people feel obliged to do one as if it is expected of them. The venerable BBC was in on the act this morning with video footage of the recently discovered "shark whale", Crackberry has the "Blackberry Storm" has been discontinued post which if it were true might be a blessing in disguise if you believe some of the negative reviews and PDA247 has the LifeDrive 11 story which is very much tongue-in-cheek.
One of the best most recent April Fools japes was in 1998 when Burger King announced the launch of the "left handed whopper", specially designed so that the burger topping and condiments would drip out on the right side for left handers. Tales abound of how customers, arriving for their whopper fill, would insist that they be given a "right handed whopper".
