I tweeted a rather lame attempt at an April Fool's joke that a few people fell for. I also liked these attempts from local media and bloggers:
Apartment 613 tried to garner support for the historic Hintonberg KFC ... the o-dot was renamed to "Thanks A Latte" after selling their blog to a Westboro mommy blogger ... CBC Radio got Jim Watson to play along for a story about re-gifting our Royal Swans. Sparty pretended that he was either fired or traded.
Martin Berthelot sent us this picture of a massive post-it note prank ... Demeure (a travel agency/blog) invited tourists to stay at 24 Sussex ... Hot 89.9 annoyed and confused listeners with the sound of a cat meowing in the background ... and Ottawa Tourism launched a new Demonstration Vacation package (perhaps not a bad idea).
The Ottawa Sun has more pranks here.
If you saw any other great pranks, please tell everybody about them in the comments below.
