5 of The Finest April Fool’s Jokes

It’s the first of April, a day of hilarity and wonder. A day when we find out which of our friends are the most gullible by playing cruel and unnecessary pranks on them and then laughing loudly into their faces. Maybe thats just me. Anyway the web’s got in on the act this year, conjuring up all manner of rubbish to delight and amaze us. Here are some of the best ones:

 

Hackney’s Borderless Cafe

This morning saw the grand opening of Hackney’s first borderless cafe. Visiting it is simple. Just download the cafe’s app, pay for a slot at your desired bench, and bring your own coffee. Entirely believable, given that Hackney is the birthplace of all the world’s nonsense. They’ve got cat cafes there, for gods sake. I’m quite sure the vast majority of Dalston-dwellers have already downloaded said app and are currently scratching their perfectly coiffeured heads in confusion. Poor darlings.

 

Vegemite: The Drink

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 14.31.28

A surprisingly popular announcement from the brand behind the world’s worst spread. Vegemite declared the arrival of their NEW Vegemite iDRINK 2.1 via Facebook. Perfect for busy people who love the taste of horror in the morning. Shudder.

 

Brixton’s Rebrand 

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 15.14.18

Brixton Buzz announced that the area is to be renamed ‘East Clapham,’ in keeping with its newfound trendiness. “With the shifting demographics and changing aspirations of the people now living in Brixton, it’s only right that the area should have a more appropriate name,” commented Tory councillor Chuck Munna. The best bit? The comments. Adrianne Rutherford’s passion is to be admired, not mocked.

 

CERN’s New Look

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 14.28.32

From today, all of CERN’s official communication channels are switching to exclusive use of the font Comic Sans. The move comes after weeks of deliberation by CERN management and top web designers about how best to update the image of the laboratory for this, its 60th anniversary year. Well it does make the letters look nice and squishy.

 

Instawindow by Instagram

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 14.35.48

I don’t know about you but I’m sick and tired of looking at real life shit. I want filters. I want everything to look like it’s from the 1970s. And I want fuzzy bits around the edges. And I want to crank up that contrast! Thank you Instagram for making it happen. About time too.

 

And the worst?

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 15.14.47

Daybreak, for announcing the arrival of a square egg whilst chuckling incoherently and doing that gross middle aged flirty thing Lorraine and Aled do. Puts me off my cereal, that. Shut up about your square eggs and get off my tely.

Street Feasting at Hawker House

I’m not entirely sure how it happened, but on Friday night I found myself at one of those clapped-out warehouses I love to complain about. It was situated, rather alarmingly, on a Bethnal Green backstreet. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Hawker House.

Say NO to Gourmet Hot Dogs

It wasn’t long ago we were asked to swallow the idea of a gourmet burger that’d set you back all of seven quid WITHOUT chips, but this daylight robbery pales in comparison to the latest idiotic nonsense to be thrust on us by ‘the London food scene’. Please allow me to introduce… GOURMET HOT DOGS.

Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack, Fitzrovia

Londoners have been stuffing themselves so full of dirty burgers and greasy American nonsense lately that they’ve almost forgotten about the Great British Seaside. Bonnie Gull are putting that right, setting up shop in a fully themed beach shack in Fitzrovia. There’s bleached wood, a map showing the catch of the day and a treasure chest full of langoustines. What more could you want?
