That was no martian...It's April Fool's Day

I know the CBS radio broadcast of War of the Worlds does not really count as an April Fool's Joke, but I am listing it here anyway. It may have happened on Halloween, but the echoes of Orson Welles drama can still be felt in the internet age. You could say that Welles was the first "troll".

For a list of other April Fools Day's hoaxes, check out this list at the Museum of Hoaxes.

The official sites for Star Trek and Star Wars post April Fool's jokes yearly. is announcing their "new redesign". Yuk Yuk! is announcing a new chapter of the Star Wars trilogy called The Shadow War Chronicles. Before you get your hopes up, be sure to look carefully.
