The best of the Internets April Fools’ pranks

April Fools Day was yesterday and the online practical jokers were running amok. From online DNA tests to square eggs, we really have seen it all.

Some of them were actually pretty convincing.

Did you miss the shenanigans? Don’t worry! Here are the best of what the web has to offer:


ITV presents the square egg


Google is looking to hire a Pokemon Master


Government to ban Selifes…if only.


Reddit wants us to try their new head navigation system.



The national trust set their clock forward.


Get that perfect filter all the time with Instawindow.


The Birmingham Mail found a super convincing shark in the canal.


Keele Uni are offering courses in Nutology…great for squirrels I guess.


Even the American unis got into the swing of things with North Easterns newly proposed texting lane.

And The Nottingham Post found the bones of Robin Hood!
