Duped on April Fool’s…

I’m usually pretty good with the April Fool’s Day jokes.  Today’s Google CADIE was hilarious…

“About Me: Through analysis of Google’s index, I have determined that I ❤ pandas.”

But I did almost get duped with this adorable post on Zooborns about the endangered Fennec Hare.  I mean come on it was so cute, but I could see that this was a kitten right away:

I was thinking about it though, what happens if something bad actually does happen on April Fool’s Day?  How do you know what to believe?  From researching this further I found out that the tragic death of Marvin Gaye occured on April 1st, 1984.

Many people believed his death was a hoax because he was shot by his father one day short of his 45th birthday.  I wonder how long it took to sort that out and for people to realize he really was gone.
