A recap of April Fool's in Ottawa

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.

  1. Thanks for the nod to Demeure's listing of 24 Sussex Drive. Seriously, though: Ignatieff has been quoted as saying he'd rather live in a hotel if he wins. So who knows...?
