I really liked collegehumor.com's joke.

instead of loading their homepage it goes to a rather official looking government site for the Department of Defense.

"Attention: Your IP address has been logged in relation to an ongoing investigation.

The site and all of its visitors are being sought in relation to an investigation regarding various posts and publications of an illegal nature.

thank you"


LOL it was something like that

after about 10 seconds it goes to their home page "APRIL FOOL!!"

AH, that would be fun, but with this crowd, if I did a joke like that, about half of them would have pulled the plug on their PC and thrown it into the river before they could see it was a scam.
