    Google always has something like this up their sleeves on April Fool's Day. I remember one year they had something about free internet that ran through your toilet!! I was all yikes and sat there for 10 minutes trying to figure out how it worked! Doh! LOL.

    For more background, the town of Topeka temporarily changed their name to Google to try and get Google to do their super high speed internet experience there.

    Google's April Fool is to do it's own name switch.
