My story:

EGM Magazne
did a brief review of a gaming accessory called "GameShortz" in their article where they reviewed various gaming accessories. The GameShortz appeared to be just a pair of boxer shorts with PlayStation controllers attached to them. The review didn't explain what the GameShortz did and seemed to be more poking fun at the idea of them. A big clue that it was an April Fools' joke was the price tag of $41.99 (4/1/99 or April 1, 1999).<---- Related to the numbers one and four,.

Noticed the chat was not working recently. Thought maybe they were doing an upgrade, but after a couple days (maybe 4) I messaged the service center. Never got any reply. It's still broke. Game is getting dull without it. I'm wondering if any 1 is still running this game?

Thank you

My story: Hold Up Your Credit Cards!


Back in the days of the Mattel Cabbage Patch Kid craze it was usually very hard to get one for the kiddies.

A radio station (I don't know where) announced that Mattel was going to get Cabbage Patch Kids out to the people of this particular city.

The plan was that they had to go to the football field of the local university and wait. An airplane would fly overhead and the dolls would be dropped onto the field.


People were supposed to hold their credit cards up so that a photographer with a telephoto lens in the airplane could get the credit card numbers and charge the price of the dolls to the recipients' accounts.

People actually showed up, waving American Express cards in the breeze.

Thanks

The best april fools yet was when they showed a tree with spagatti growing on it and they actually fooled people to belive that spaghatti was grown on trees.

I thought that this was also going to be an april fools and they were actually going to fix the chat so we could all chat to eachother again.
No point sending a message to the service centre as they have still not replyed to my other 2 questions from months ago.

    My Story:

    Dead Men Tell No Tales:
   
    "I attended college an hour and a half from home, and a few times during the semester my dad would pick me up on Fridays so I could come home and visit for the weekend. We were on the interstate driving home, when my dad starts to tell me a story about a time when he was in the Army. I forget the precise details, but it was basically about how he and some buddies went out on the town one evening and had a few drinks. ... The tale becomes a bit more serious and personal all of the sudden — like he's pouring his heart out to me. My dad then says that he and his friends ran into another group of guys and got into an argument. The fight supposedly turned physical, with my dad throwing some punches at one of these guys. Then my dad, in the most serious tone possible, tells me that he grabbed the guy and pushed him off a cliff. The guy died and my dad and his friends managed to cover up the whole sordid tale from the police — this was the first time he'd ever admitted it to another living soul outside of that night.

     At this point, I'm horrified. Is my dad just confessing a murder to me? Was this mild-mannered man radically different when he was a 20-year-old kid? Do I tell my mom? Do I tell the police? Do I ask him to stop the car? ... Finally something in the story actually sunk in — the part about 'pushing him off a cliff.' My dad was stationed in Louisiana when he was in the military and while I'd never been there, I was pretty sure there weren't that many cliffs. I finally said, ''Wait a minute, a cliff?' I'd been avoiding even looking at him since he made his 'confession,' but now that I looked over, he was about ready to explode. No longer able to hold it, he started laughing hysterically and kept saying, 'I can't believe you fell for it! You thought I killed a guy! April Fool's!'"

my story:
Ok, about 20 years ago or around there, i was living in Spokane, WA and one of the best country music radio stations there decided to pull an april fools joke on the whole town. What they did is at 5am in the morning, they announced that they were no longer gonna be a country music station, they were gonna be a hard rock station. So after the news, they proceeded to play nothing but hard rock from several of the big acts at the time. now this went on until, just before 1030 am, one of the dj's made a mistake and played the regular, un-doctored station jingle, and then started playing the rock music again. about midway thru the song, he stopped the music and goes "APRIL FOOLS"! Then they went back to there regular country music programming, but they had the whole city of spokane thinking for most of the morning that they were changing what type of music station they were. this is the biggest prank i have ever been a victim of.  i hope you guy's like it.

MY STORY:

On the front page of the Guardian for Sunday, there was an exclusive story revealing that Mrs Thatcher was putting her family home in Dulwich on the market since she had decided to reside permanently in Downing Street, not an unimaginable event in 1990. 'Number 1 and 4 Chequers are all the homes we have need of,' she was quoted as saying. Another feature was Salman Rushdie on 'A room of my own' – taking its name from a series in the Observer, which the Guardian did not yet own. Rushdie, who had been in hiding for just over a year, since the fatwa of February 1989, described a room in a clapperboard [sic, there was no corrections column then] building in the Falklands Islands, somewhere in the area of Goose Green. The photograph showed an orange 'neighbourhood watch' sticker in the window.
The books pages reflected the not uncommon view that such pages were customarily in the hands of a small elite. Martin Amis reviewed Margaret Drabble; Margaret Drabble reviewed Blake Morrison; Blake Morrison reviewed Julian Barnes; Julian Barnes reviewed Martin Amis … and so on. The impending publication of the Guardian for Sunday had been reported po-faced as a real event in the trade press, and champagne now had to be dispatched to all the trade reporters who had been taken in. As a tour de force it ranked with the invention of the island of San Serriffe whose discovery was announced in the Guardian on 1 April 1977
