Holy April 1st Batman!

April Fools’ Day isn’t usually a “holiday” that I care ANYTHING about… and really, it isn’t still now! But I must admit, the Internet goes ALL OUT on April Fools’ Day, and you can usually find some great stories through it! Now, of course, there are, literally, over 800 websites which features some sort of joke today, so featuring them all would be a major pain in the rear end, but, if you’re interested, you can visit the following site to be able to look through them all. But before I tell you what the site is, I thought I’d mention a few of the most notable features from today!
