I'm very glad it's over. Being bombarded with stupid jokes all over the internet got tiring after the first hour or so.

Every piece of April Fool's crap was worth it for the update my favorite webcomic got yesterday. http://www.nofna.comChoose "Pika" from the dropdown list. It single handedly made up for years of terrible April fools jokes beside it.

That...that was amazing.
I'm pretty sure it's called April Fool's Day, not Hour. No offense, but by this point in both Blizzard and WoW's lifespan, haven't you come to expect this?

Just because we know they will do it, doesn't mean we have to think it is funny.

@alamos: Yes, but that's the point, we *expect* it now. There's absolutely no surprise or shock value when people treat the day with a sense of paranoia about being pranked, everyone is expecting the unexpected.I like the creativity in some of these April Fool's jokes (especially Blizzard's and the Cataclysm ones were well-done) but many of them get very old, very fast. Again though, it's due to the expectancy level, everyone EXPECTS to be fooled and pranked on April Fool's day and only the truly naive think otherwise.My advice? Next year confuse the absolute hell out of everyone by either not having an April Fool's joke at all or by postponing it for X amount of days and having it on a random date. Remember those "pranks" where people say "APRIL FOOLS" in the middle of July, September - or whatever date past/before April 1st - after pranking someone? They work cause you didn't expect them, not because it's ironic [that it isn't actually April].Also note the day may be called April Fools day, but the holiday is called April Fools. April is at least 30 days long, GIVE EVERYONE HELL!

I had some good laughs yesterday, and some heavy groans too. It was fun, but I'm also glad its over. I'm getting too old for so much chaos I guess. lol I might have to just skip it next year and pick the good stuff out of the recaps the next day.

Amen to that. Normally I'm all for good fun but I hate that the internet essentially becomes unusable for an entire day. 90% of the "jokes" are stupid and unfunny anyway.At this point the only way to shock someone on April Fool's is to do something SERIOUS. Valve actually went this route once a while back, and announced some serious news that turned out to be true.Though I did get a kick out of Bioware's special DLC for Dragon Age, which was gag gifts for your party members, some of which make them hate you instead of raiding affection. The Alistair doll for Morrigan about made me die. (And considering one of the potential endings, it's kind of a Funny Aneurysm Moment.) XD
