No Foolin'

April Fools was last Friday (no, really), and I purposely decided not to play any jokes (though my four-year-old daughter Kiley more than made up for it with her pranks directed at me).

That doesn't mean Redmondmag.com didn't have any fun. Web editor Chris Paoli knocked it out of the park with this gem about Steve Ballmer being replaced by the returning Bill Gates. Even some staffers fell for it at first!

A couple of readers pointed out the item couldn't be true because MSFT stock didn't immediately shoot up.

The Seattle Post Intelligencer rounded up the best Microsoft items and posted them here.
