One last hoorah for April fool's!
OK, I lied - this will be the last 2018 post on April Fool's corporate jokes. The last two things come from Ikea, and from Sony. The Playstation Board game (would love to know the heuristics and game mechanics on that one!), and the Ikea (IoT?) Toilet and Laptop.
Bartender Elbow? - get Jagerbalm!
OK, this is the last of my April Fool's posts! I've never had Jagermeister, but this fake ad was pretty funny (another one I've shared a few times this week).
4d6&Me - What's your character?
Continuing with the parade of silly April Fool's Jokes, another one that I've watched, and shared, a few times already on other social media - genetic testing to show you what your character's abilities are in real life. It's a take on genetic testing that shows where your ancestor's are from, but with a D&D take on it. Go for charisma and intelligence!
Diploma in Human Survival
I think this is the only April Fool's joke to come out of an educational provider. Courses.com.au seems to be a course/job certification website that matches potential students with educational providers in Australia. This certificate of human survival is perfect for a post-apocalyptic world!
Quest Management Kit
Another April Fool's joke product from ThinkGeek I've watched at least 6 times thus far! I think the fact that it combines DnD and Office Space makes it hit the sweet spot of comedy :-)
Burger King's chocolate whopper
As April Fool's jokes go, this is so bad that it's good. I like the building of burger through sweet materials but I can't imagine eating this.Here is the materials video:
I must have watched this one at least 5 times already - pretty funny! Need a Gyro API soon ;-) Yes, this is another April Fool's joke.
Google's bad joke detector
More April Foolin' - with Google's Bad Joke Detector (seriously saves space!)
Only in Japan! (and for April Fools) :-)
The New T-Mobile Sidekick!
Continuing with the April Fool's parade, I actually had a good laugh at this one. The Sidekick was T-Mobile's brand for the Danger Hiptop (nice device, needs a comeback!), which is what this ad/fake product is referencing. That said, any fans of Get Smart will also appreciate the shoe-phone :-)
Today is a good day to learn Klingon!
Well...April Fool's is here, and Think Geek has not disappointed! I think I'll space these things out over the next week, but here is what caught my eye first: Klingon fridge magnets!
April Fools, Google Style
I have to say, I am not a huge pokemon fan, but I think this is cool! Too bad this is just an April Fool's joke. Then again, knowing that Google has Niantic Labs and Ingress, what's there to stop them from creating something like this? I say go for it :) Create an augmented reality pokemon game using google maps ;-)
Google 8-bit maps
This years' Google April Fool's joke is epic: 8-bit mas, NES style!
