She tweeted just that mere hours ago. But of course, it was April Fools Day. Whew! But wait a minute. Lindsay happened to have posted the tweet after midnight, EST.
Can an ingredient be too local? The gelatinous seaweed served at New York's newest pop-up restaurant is scraped each morning from the bottom of the Staten Island Ferry and strewn over sheets of fried kale. It's slippery stuff and it tastes dangerous, like it could kill you. It just might. For the p ... More >>
April Fools' Day has become, for lack of a better word, a shitshow. A day of pranks played on and by friends has metastasized into overblown theater perpertrated by news outlets, corporations, and even governments. Did you set your sister's clock back an hour? Too bad, Scope has already goofed her ... More >>

Much like Rogue's beer made from a brewmaster's beard-cultivated yeast, this weird, ballsy brew started out as a joke. Then it got out of hand. Colorado-based Wynkoop Brewery first imagined Rocky Mountain Oyster Beer as an April Fool's joke: A video of the brewers discussing their love for their st ... More >>
There's a sure-fire way to draw the ire of, well...just about everyone: write a newspaper article with the headline "What About the Good Things Hitler Did?" and then attribute it to a Jewish college kid who didn't even write it -- which is exactly what a satirical newspaper at Rutgers University did ...

April Fools' is just darn frustrating. As a studier of the Internet, you have to be constantly on guard. With every word you read and link you click on you must think, "could this really ridiculous story be real? Or is it a product of someone's imagination?" So, as the most annoying holiday of the y ...

Prior to receiving the above "telegram" today, we've been to the McKittirck Hotel twice to engage with Punchdrunk's Sleep No More. Now, it seems the production is about to undergo a radical change. Or engage in an April Fool's Day prank against would be returning customers. Or maybe, as the cl ... More >>
We were wondering: Could there be truth to the idea that, say, after a natural disaster, or on a long holiday weekend, there might be a stronger inclination to turn to the sex of your choosing and merge, or try to find someone with whom to merge, or at least get some dinner or something? And how did ... More >>
crazybluepanda/FlickrEven though New York may not be any closer to getting an In-n-Out Burger than we were on April Fool's Day 2010, it looks like we'll soon receive another meaty Southern Californian love letter in the form of Umami Burger.
In cases of being stuck to something, it is far better to be glued than to be fused. Or so it would seem. But if you're in a discount superstore on or around April Fool's Day, your best bet is to use the bathroom at home, lest you end up like the 48-year-old Maryland man who became stuck to t ... More >>
Gwyneth overload.You can't turn on a TV or a radio without seeing or hearing Gwyneth Paltrow these days. And it's starting to look more and more like the long-legged Country Strong star is about to invade newsstands, too.
April Fool's Day is over but that doesn't mean the fun and games have to end. So get ready to play a new round of Where Am I Eating? As always, examine the picture and tell us where we are eating. The first person to guess correctly will win both eternal fame and an awesome cookbook.
This is an exclusive, folks. The people that control the Academy Awards have decided that next year they will give a special Oscar to Madonna! For her screen work! A memo that was just leaked to me cites Madonna's "brash charm and deft, chameleon-like skill, as evidenced by her performance ... More >>
Whew, just when we were getting placid on our daily commutes, that little microcosm o' life, there comes this video in which two ostensible strangers battle it out -- to the nail! -- over whether the one should or should not clip his nails on the subway. (He should not.) Still, this is amusing, prob ... More >>
Today, almost every media operation in the world has already attempted or will soon attempt to make a joke at the expense of their readers, viewers, visitors, or customers. Most will actually fool very few, while even less will be funny. We've already noted some of Google's gags for the day, ... More >>
Dear April Fool's Day, Listen. We hate to be the ones to say this...well, actually, we're perfectly happy to be the ones to say this, because we've been thinking it all damn day. You suck. For people who work on the Internet, you suck especially. But also, you suck for everyone. In the dark ... More >>
On one final April Fool's Day note, our local blog buddy Bucky Turco at Animal New York pulled a pretty fast one on a time-honored national group.
