Not sure if you will find this funny or not but I was laughing for five minutes solid...in my geography class, had to hand in a report. Had 6 weeks to do it. So we thought up an idea!? The entire class would have "not" done it.  ;D So, class comes around, he asks us for our reports, and silence falls upon us. Then one pipes up saying, "Sir, I thought it was in for next term." to which he responded by taking us all off guard and snapped into an angry fit telling us that it was NOT ACCEPTABLE. At which point I replied to him "Sir?!" and he said in an angry voice "WHAT!?" I then finished with "April Fools!"

He then proceeded to pick up a desk, fling it about in the air before slamming it back down and shouting to the entire class "THAT WAS VERY GOOD!"  ;D It made my day.

We then proceeded to have two cakes and watched a movie.  8)

There were one or two April Fools jokes I thought were funny:

http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/commando/
GW2 continues to impress me with their sense of humor, this fake class cracked me up as much as the one swotor claimed to have last year.

Speaking of which SWTOR will be fully avaliable in the wookie dialect:

So far my favorite joke I've seen this year.

The Guild Wars 2 Commando is awesome.

A couple of Blizzard's fake patch notes had me rolling as well:

"Tank Stimulus: Successfully completing 25 Dungeon Finder runs as a tank will grant you a $400 Federal tax credit. (Requires Form 8863)"

"In addition to their current spells, mage Mirror Images now can randomly cast Frost Nova, Ring of Frost, Portal: Dalaran, and Mirror Image. Mirror Images summoned by Mirror Images can also cast Mirror Image. Mirror Images summoned by Mirror Images that are summoned by Mirror Images can also cast Mirror Images. Mirror Images that are summoned by Mirror Images that are summoned by Mirror Images that are summoned by Mirror Images…"

Well, there was a small April Fool's joke in the forums for VTW. My post about trashing the world files for Minecraft was my attempt, but most saw through it.

Not that my vote counts for any thing. But the one from blizzard I liked this year was Crabby: The Dungeon Helper.
Now what really got a laff out of me was ThinkGeek's Angry Birds Pork Rinds. I mean if FarmVille can have a food item why not the makers of Angry Birds?
