My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Best April Fool Pranks of All Time.

 1.  1998 -The Left Handed Whooper.  Burger King announced they were making a burger that condiments would only drip out of the right side.  Customers ended up specifically ordering right or left handed burgers.
 2.  1983 - Australian millionaire Dick Smith claimed to have towed an iceberg from Antarctica to Sydney Harbor. He used a barge covered in plastic and foam from a fire extinguisher to create his iceburg.
 3.  2005- Nasa announced finding water on mars.  On the official Nasa website- they had a picture of a glass of water on a mars candy bar.
 4.  2005 Best Google Hoax.  Google announces Google Gulp a fictitious beverage that will increase users intelligence by changing your DNA.

Happy April Fools Day! What are you up to this weekend?

Ha! I love this. I remember years ago a radio station saying that the phone company was going to be cleaning out phone lines and the dust would come through the handset of your home telephone. They said that everyone should wrap their phones in plastic. I really wonder how many people ended up doing that. Have a great weekend!

Great collection of pranks... Can't believe I've never really known about any of them! I loved YouTube's prank a few years ago - the "Rick Roll" when every video viewers tried to watch was automatically redirected to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." This weekend is a pretty lazy one for me and I couldn't be happier about it! Hope yours is lovely!
