April is aproacing. So is a season to fool people on 1st April. Many could have already started finding new, creative ways of making people fool. You may not agree with me when i say "people have started finding new, creative ways to fool others". You may say, "nobody thinks of making others fool well in advance, this is not any occasion like Diwali or New year where people prepare things in advance". Hmm, you may be right. Even I was also not aware of it. I also had not seen any person preparing for april fool day in advacnce. Well, not atleast among persons we know. But I am sure we are not considering Googlers (full time Google employee) in them. Because Googlers prepare for this day well in advance. Seems unbelievable? Ok, walk through list and link of hoaxes/fools Google has done till now. I bet you its full of fun, enjoy.
