What was your favorite April Fools Day joke this year? I liked Alexa listening to pets and Google putting a data center on Mars.

Oh and CodeRanch which skipped April Fools this year and just did the urgent forum.

I liked Google Maps turning the roads into a Pacman game.

In the Netherlands for most of the past years you had to turn in your tax form on April first. I once had a very urgent question, I had a busy day, I had only hours to make a change, asked something about it to my tax advisor and he started joking. ...

Afterwards I told him to (fill in something I cannot post here).

And I do not really like Aprils fools day. Putting it diplomatically.

Is the joke here that your tax adviser had a sense of humour? A clearly preposterous idea of course.

Nope, there was no joke, just irritation, sorry. I never consulted him again.
 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
