Happy April Fools Day to all Toilet Paper Blog Readers!
Just wanted to share with you some funny April Fools online pranks. Traditionally, April Fools Day pranks have included toilet papering (or Tping) unsuspecting people’s houses.
In honor of this funny practical joke, FarmVille, the popular online Facebook game, implemented the option of toilet papering barns. A free roll of toilet paper was given to every farmer. Users can pull toilet paper pranks on their neighbors’ barns.
Some states classify toilet papering as illegal, but others do not penalize toilet papering pranks. If you are looking for a hilarious prank for April Fools Day without the legal risks, try toilet papering on FarmVille. Thanks to FarmVille Freak for the post and pictures!
Google is also known for their April Fools Day pranks, including Google TiSP (short for Toilet Internet Service Provider). Google TiSP was a google hoax, a fictitious free broadband internet service that people could install themselves, accessible by flushing a fiber optic cable down a toilet connected to the local sewage system.
Larry Page was supposedly quoted in the official press release:
“We’ve got that whole organizing-the-world’s-information thing more or less under control,” said Google Co-founder and President Larry Page, a longtime supporter of so-called “dark porcelain” research and development. “What’s interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you – not to mention from you.”
The Installation Instructions includes illustrated step by step instructions for self-installation, or offers professional installation service with free bathroom delivery. It even offered a TiSP Help Group for online help.
Whether you choose to pull an April Fools Day Prank online or not, I hope you enjoyed these funny pranks!
