April Fool's Joke of the Day

From The Guardian:

Consolidating its position at the cutting edge of new media technology, the Guardian today announces that it will become the first newspaper in the world to be published exclusively via Twitter, the sensationally popular social networking service that has transformed online communication.


A mammoth project is also under way to rewrite the whole of the newspaper's archive, stretching back to 1821, in the form of tweets. Major stories already
completed include "1832 Reform Act gives voting rights to one in five adult males yay!!!"; "OMG Hitler invades Poland, allies declare war see for more"; and "JFK assassin8d @ Dallas, def. heard second gunshot from grassy knoll WTF?"

Entry on Twitter forthcoming...

I dunno, it's hard to top this year's gag products at ThinkGeek. Squeez bacon! Portal T-shirts with built-in cameras and LCD screens! A Star Wars Tauntaun sleeping bag! A USB pet rock!
