After however times they've done this, the only way they could pull an april fools joke is by tricking people by not putting up any fake stories. Instead, post stories that sound fake but really aren't.

Or... post serious stories, but have all the links go to the wrong articles. Maybe have them all go to the same site, so that it gets slashdotted extra severely.

You speak the truth.

I mean... gah! I know it's April fools (actually, it's been and gone in Australia), but my god how many piss poor jokes can one website take?

I come to Slashdot to enjoy some geeky news and stories of interest, not be bombarded with poor joke after poor joke, all of which are retreads of the same poor jokes we've had year after damn year.

Re:When were they funny? (1)

Beefysworld (1005767) | more than 7 years ago | (#18569845)

One or two of the better ones would have been fine, then perhaps a post linking to all the rest of them at once. Separate posts for each one is a little over the top.

Not this year. (1)

Pinball Wizard (161942) | more than 7 years ago | (#18570079)

This has been about the worst April Fools Day ever. Partly because its Sunday, but the jokes on Slashdot and Google this year are about the most unfunny, unprankable ones ever.

Yawn...ZZzzzzz

Ponies? Really? (1, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 7 years ago | (#18570215)

Yes, this year did suck. A bunch of boring stories that weren't half way credible, along with a digg-like slashdottit counter...

But honestly, I really do miss the ponies. Say, is there some extension or clever css hack to bring the ponies back? (and, yes I would actually browse like that everyday! seriously!) Is the only way writing a greasemonkey script to replace images and css by hand? Because my javascript-fu isn't exactly great... Any other ways? Hell, I would PAY for a webite that could proxy slashdot or such, replacing what's required in the process to get the ponies. I still have the original files required (saved the page locally just in case)

Seriously? Pretty please?

Re:Sonny, in my day (2, Funny)

mysticgoat (582871) | more than 7 years ago | (#18570037)

You had Cobble Stones???

Shoot, we had to make do with Fortran on Feet. And we had to hand carry our Holloriths, too. Seventeen flights of stairs from the punchcard stations to the cardreader, through waist deep snow, and uphill both ways.

Hee, hee... I remember when Crazy Dave started saving all the chad from the bitbuckets of the cardpunch machines. After about a month he had this huge bag of microconfetti, and one afternoon when the Admin had his back to us (rethreading the backup highspeed tape machine, he was), Crazy Dave dumped all that chad into the input buffer of that old woodburning computer. Sparks went flying out every which-way from the grating, and the fluepipe turned cherry red from the heat, but that's got to have been the first ever attempt at overclocking! w00t!

That afternoon Crazy Dave prolly would of solved that puzzle Fermat left behind if the a/c had been able to keep up with the overclocking. But core overheated and the itty-bitty little wires of the outer 16K frame melted, and there were suddenly 147,456 tiny little ferrous donuts rolling around the floor (those frames used 8 bit bytes with a parity bit: pretty good stuff in the day). That's when Crazy Dave and I decided that physically removing ourselves from the presence of the Admin would be a prudent alteration in our plan.
