Sorry for the football related post, but I've just seen that Alan Shearer is apparently taking over at Newcastle for the rest of the season. I can't decide whether it's an April Fool or not, which probably says a great deal about the state of the club....

One or two is no worry, I was more making a pattern observation elsewhere.

I quite like the Tech herald one though that's just asking for people to cause trouble.

Youtube have done a video flip jobby, looks like the BBC is giving us the rare and elusive shark whale and I'm sure I'll stumble across others.

Didn't thinkgeek also do squeezy-bacon?

I did see on bitterwallet one about my workplace getting Muhammad Ali in as a non-executive director.

Pizza-hut have announced pizzas you can get your portrait on, which is probably an april fools.

The hotelicopter is apparently fooling a lot of people.

I had difficulty reading the quirkies on ananova as they're suitably weird that they could be real or hoaxes.

I went up to my work HQ today (I work for the RSPB) and heard they'd had several callers asking for Al Bertross and C. Gull this morning. Very Happy
