As expected, everyone on the interwebs is going hog-wild with April Fool's pranks. But just because someone makes up an idea as a joke doesn't mean it's not a good idea.
Online retailer Thinkgeek, for instance, has posted 8 non-existent products on their main page today. The device that lets you test whether your electric socket is working by sticking your fingers in it is obviously a joke. The SnuzNLuz alarm clock that connects to your bank via WiFi and donates money to a charity you hate every time you sleep in is a bit less obvious.
But the 8-bit tie that looks like something out of a Super Mario Bros. game? I'd buy that for $15. I'm not sure where or when I would have a chance to wear it. But I'd buy it.
