I love April Fool’s Day, primarily because of how many large organizations wholeheartedly embrace it each year, favoring us with pranks ranging from gut-bustingly hilarious to gloriously absurd.

It must be April Fool’s Day on the Internet. In what’s become an annual tradition, the tech world embraced the tomfoolery of April 1 with all the gusto you’d expect from clever geeks with time on their hands between hackathons. And the results this year were solid.As usual, Google led the cheeky charge with a spate of gags spanning its many Web and mobile services.

My personal favorite is the implementation of the URF gametype into League of Legends by Riot Games, something which sadly didn’t make the list. For shame, CNN. For shame.
