April Fools Prank Watch, 2011

Every year has an April 1st, and every April 1st brings out the fools. But we bring you the TRUTH. This year's spectrum of April Fools pranks run from site takeovers to subtle font changes. We'll catalog them all here -- and add others you see in the comments below.

    Search for Helvetica. You may be surprised by what you see! Haha lol!

    It might just be my aging eyes, but something seems different about the spelling over there today.

    Everyone's favorite new pop sensation has taken over Funny Or Die -- and it's Friday, too, which is fitting. Yesterday was Thursday, tomorrow is Saturday, etc.
