I can't find a perma-link at the moment, but Dollar Shave Club has a Facebook post about their "One Wipe Charlie" toilet wipes now available in a "Ghost Pepper, Cinnamon, and Sea Salt" variety.

If you play the mobile game Summoners War, you'll like it today. The monsters have all been given cool new outfits. My Icaru is a robot, my Lapis is a Japanese schoolgirl and my Vampire is a skateboarding tagger, just to name a few.

I know it's still early, but I feel that this year I haven't come across as many April Fools pranks online. Maybe later in the day?

But as usual, the Think Geek crew has come up with a bunch of stuff I'd like to see made real! :lol:

Phelous finally gets around to a "Phelous and the Movies Explained" video. What's it all about, really?

Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki, has decided to shift focus to being all about corners of rooms...in other words, nooks.

And the latest episode of Bad Creepypasta features a pasta with a truly horrifying ending.

That was superb.

I like the one "This is the song that never ends"

I like the Rock-em Sock-em Robots of Tesla and Edison. :lol:

Shall we play my favorite post-April Fool's game? Guess which ThinkGeek AF product will be made real?

1. Klingon alphabet refrigerator magnets - although they should really make them vinyl letters so they could be Cling On Klingon Letters.
2. Bluetooth pet rock - Just an interface to let you connect to it, then it does nothing.
3. Quest management kit

ETA: One has already made it, probably because it doesn't require any licensing agreement or complicated design process: Tentacuddle

Jamesons Whisky popped into my timeline on Twitter (don't judge me) and they had a great product I thought would be awesome.

https://www.jamesonwhiskey.com/en/competition/SpaceAged

Space aged whisky. A bottle attached to a balloon, launched to space and recovered after the balloon burst. It mentioned some credible things about how the chill, pressure and solar radiation would cause changes to the flavour of the whisky. I was intrigued.

But, it was an April Fool's joke. And a good one.
