Let us all give pranks

From MINI USA's Facebook

Growing up, the cruelest April Fool's Day pranks were dished out by my Mom. They were simple. If April 1 fell on a week day, I'd hear, "School's canceled for (fill in the blank with reasonable excuse)!" The exhilarating feeling of a free day was quickly dashed by "April Fool's!!!" I can't say how many times I fell for that, but I'd like to think my gullibility is heightened in the first few minutes of morning.

As much as I'd love to prank y'all today, I'm still too sick to come up with something clever. (Sidenote: Isn't having an annoying cold on the weekend the greatest!!!)

So, instead, here's a collection of April Fool's Day pranks I found through Twitter this morning (lots of car pranks). Let me know If I missed good ones.

Google Racing: Self-driving NASCAR

Google Analytics adds interplanetary reporting

Smart cars now allowed to use Dallas recreational trails

Warby Barker canine eyewear

ESPN SportsNation's Michelle Beadle's YouTube video

Not sure about this, but the Girls Around Me app strikes me as a prank. If it is, kudos, because in addition to the Times, Forbes and WSJ are all reporting the news.
