Traditionally, the first day of April is a perfect time to get your kicks by playing jokes and setting up pranks for your friends, family and coworkers. Some people like to prepare for this day by pulling pranks all year long for practice. Thank goodness we now have YouTube so jokesters can record these pranks and the reactions they cause and then post them for our enjoyment.
Every year since 2000, except 2001 and 2003, Google has treated netizens to at least one, sometimes 17, April Fool’s Day pranks and easter eggs. And, since we know they love to play (check out their new Google Play offering), we’re hoping 2012 will be no different.
It makes sense that the masses should decide who has had an influence over them. Perhaps this is the theory behind TIME Magazine’s recent release of its 200-name ballot for its yearly list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

In the upcoming Disney movie ‘Maleficent,’ Angelina Jolie will play the titular evil queen, who is the villain of the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ story. The movie follows the ‘Wicked’-inspired trend of seeing a story through the villain’s eyes, while getting a glimpse into the full range of Maleficent’s history and personality, rather than showing her just as a one-dimensional mean girl.
It doesn’t get a lot of press coverage and the banks are still open, but March 23 is National Puppy Day. For the seventh year, we will spend this day reflecting on what it is that we love so much about puppies. Perhaps this is a day we should have more than once a year.
It’s been a series of best selling teen novels and a much anticipated movie release, and now ‘The Hunger Games’ has achieved legendary status because it has been spoofed and spoofed and spoofed again on the Web. And, this seems like a trend that isn’t going to stop any time soon.
It’s been 75 years since Amelia Earhart disappeared in the South Pacific, but researchers have gotten a new lead in the case. A photo that was taken only three months after her disappearance could hold an important clue to where she is.
It’s a little unusual to drive down a rural highway and see a car engulfed in flames. It’s even more unusual to see two firemen dressed in drag dousing those flames with a fire hose. And yet, that’s exactly what happened in Minnesota recently.
The PBS series ‘Downton Abbey,’ produced and set in the UK, has become a runaway hit. This means everyone now wants to hitch a ride on the ‘Abbey’ bandwagon. Or, in this case, the ‘Abbey’ band-waggin’.
Do you know someone who is really into the ‘Twilight’ series? Well, if you’re not, but they are, be their best bud today and send them a link to the trailer that just started making its way around the ‘net.
