It’s April Fool’s Day today (no, seriously!), which in recent years has morphed into God’s gift to the Internet.

Today, sites everywhere are doing their best to prank unsuspecting users, and we’ll be the first to admit that we’ve fallen for a few of them. (Thanks, Google!)

As such, we’ve pulled together the best jokes and gags across the web that will have you laughing all the way to April 2.

Gmail Motion

Google has been introducing “amazing” “products” every April 1st for several years now. In 2009 they brought us Gmail Autopilot a feature that took the hassle out of actually having to read and reply to emails. This year they bring us Gmail Motion, a revolutionary way to read and respond to email. WITH YOUR BODY. You stand in front of your computer and make rediculus movements to open and reply to emails, it even has ways for you to “type.” See how it works:

Funny or Die

Friday or Die

The popular humor website has fittingly dedicated its entire page to ‘Friday’ singer Rebecca Black, complete with a fake ‘Behind the Music’-esque documentary. As much as we love this gag, we seriously hope it (not to mention Rebecca Black) disappears by Saturday.

Hulu.com

The online video streaming site went Internet retro today, with promos for outdated shows, links and clips. Among the highlights: an ‘X-Files’ episode that promos “up-and-comer Lucy Liu” as its guest star. Those were the days.

These dorks put their thinking caps on once again to bring us some of the funniest fake products on the Internet, including Angry Birds Pork Rinds and Edible iPhone Gummy Cases. Is it lunch yet?

YouTube

Today YouTube took us back, way back, to 1911. They’ve given us the ability to turn ANY video on YouTube into an old-time movin’ picture complete with saloon music!
Just click the 1911 button to send your video back in time!

But wait, there’s more! YouTube also put together the “Top 5 Viral Pictures from 1911,” check ‘em out:

And now for all you design nerds: Simply Google the font “Helvetica” and watch as the entire search engine transforms into Comic Sans, thus proving that the much-maligned font really is a joke.
