Instead of coming up with idiotic ideas, perhaps all the dumb companies trying to push their stupid April Fools' Day "jokes" down our throats should start making some actually awesome pranks.

Steve Wozniak just sent this fun stunt caught on video a few years ago: Watch him deliver a Mac to Emma, a girl who freaks out when she realizes her idol is at the door carrying her new computer. As Emma's father says in the video: "This is like having your lightbulbs delivered by Thomas Edison." He's totally right. …
This prank is genius. Thanks to the wonders of optics and a simple Photoshop technique you can easily make a jar with a pickled human head inside. This will make anyone scream in the office or at home as soon as they open the fridge—such a great effect.

A comedy show in the UK has just pulled off a rather well executed prank. It all got started earlier this week when Dan Richards, the "CEO" of a fake company called FameDaddy, appeared on a major morning television show.

Jimmy Kimmel, my favorite late night host and prankster extraordinaire, wickedly asked people to post videos of them turning off their TVs during the Super Bowl while everyone in their home was watching.
