I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around,
and don't let anybody tell you different

Judge Jonathan joins the Google family

MOUNTAIN VIEW - Google today announced it is purchasing Judge Jonathan (http://judgejonathan.blogspot.com) for an undisclosed sum. According to Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Google has acquired the rights to Judge Jonathan in both his virtual and physical form, giving the search giant access to "almost three years of D-list blogging history" as well as a body of experience in First Life that "dates back to the early 1980s."

Okay... so that's what my lame attempt at an April Fool's joke would look like. Others were smarter and reported on good ones instead of making them up. There's Gmail for you, via Tobistar, and the BBC (fifty years ago) via Captain's Log.

Other goodies this year:

  • The Register reports on Apple & Google's "ultimate phone"
  • Google's got another one: Google TiSP (which "goes with the flow")
  • Housequake announces that Prince is taking his Las Vegas 3121 concept elsewhere. To Des Moines, Iowa.
  • And Ehud Olmert announces last year's war in Lebanon was "a resounding success". And that "within five years an arrangement will be reached between Israel and the Palestinians and with the entire Arab world". And that "the government is performing well, the economy is thriving, the coalition is stable, there is no terror, Israel's international status has never been better". And that he is "managing the affairs of state quite well." Oh wait, he's serious.
And more and more from years before.
