  1. Really…. these jokes were so lame. Lol. Topeka? The iPad being a joke? Someone somewhere down the line couldve came up with something more believable than these.

  2. Jon: It’s almost impossible to fool anyone on April Fools day nowadays. So instead of trying to fool people (and fail badly), the trend now is usually do something that is funny. Which is what most of the websites are doing.
