It was factually wrong, mathematically challenged, and included spelling errors. But if you like a good hoax, you might like to see this list of the 100 best April Fool’s hoaxes of all time at the Museum of Hoaxes. It includes the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest, Sidd  Finch, the Taco Liberty Bell, Nixon for President in ’92, and tons of other great ones.

Who’s Who In Your NCAA Basketball Pool


DukeIf you’re like most Americans, chances are you’ve received an email or a phone call from a friend asking you if you’re interested in joining their NCAA basketball pool. And, if you’re like most Americans with a slight gambling problem, you probably said yes.

Before you submit your sheet and write in UConn to win it all, Cracked is offering you a little who’s who in your Office Pool, so you know exactly what you’re going up against.

I like this little cheat sheet. I fall right in between the ‘You’ category and ‘The Guy Who Doesn’t Pick Any Upsets’, so my chances are pretty good this year.

So go Duke! (and every other team with a seed higher than the team it’s playing against!) I could use the $75.

SIZZLER: Lindsay Lohan Wants to Get Married Like Britney



Lindsay Lohan wants to follow in Britney Spears‘ (bare)footsteps:

The 19-year-old star would have no problem following in the singer’s footsteps because she would like to see what marriage feels like for a minute. She explains, "Marriage is a big deal, but who’s to say I’m not going to pull a ‘Vegas’ and get married just to get married and see what it’s like for a minute?"

It would awesome if she married the same guy that Britney married. How cool would it be to get to say, "I was married to Britney Spears AND Lindsay Lohan"? Step up, Jason Allen Alexander.
