April Fool’s joke backfires on ThinkGeek | | A.V. Club
Yesterday brought the expected flood of April Fool’s jokes, like news that the 188-year-old Guardian newspaper would be switching from ink to Twitter or that the special ingredient in this week’s A.V. Club Taste Test was ejaculate. But sometimes even a good joke can backfire in unexpected ways, and that’s what happened to the wisenheimers over at ThinkGeek.com, who announced a fake product that it turned out everybody wanted.
To their credit, they’re going to try to actually make them.
