This Is The Most I've Liked That Harry Potter Kid Since He Shot A Condom At Dame Diana Rigg

Okay, we all know what day it is today. I also know, my clever clickers, that you’re too smart to be caught up in the April Tomfoolery. Right? You didn’t click that thing, did you? Oh you poor dears. Here’s a gen-yoo-ine Link Wench Promise. There are no tricks up my sleeve in today’s P. Love. In an effort not to be fooled myself, I collected most of my links last night. So, to the best of my knowledge, these are all legit. My favorite pranks around the interwebs today? It’s a tie between Hulu and what you find if you google “Helvetica.” (Hulu)

Also, if you’re at the office today, Gizmodo has a list of some tech pranks you can pull on your co-workers. The voice-activated printer is a classic. (Gizmodo)

This may SOUND like a prank, but it’s just those wacky Republicans. The GOP admonished Florida Democrat Scott Randolph for using a filthy word while addressing the State House. Are the kids out of the room? Okay. The word? “Uterus.” COME ON. (Angry Black Lady)

This is also not a prank, though I wish it were. It’s macaroni and cheese sushi. With a ground beef center. I can only imagine stoners wanting to eat this and it takes WAY too much prep and malice aforethought for the munchie bunch to pull off. This is why the Good Flying Spaghetti Monster invented Easy Mac. (Buzzfeed)

And the last “This Can’t Be True You’re Making It Up No I Swear I’m Not” link is to Wikipedia. Which never lies. Ever. If they are to be believed, there’s a political group called The Pirate Party of Canada. Yarrr, eh? (Wikipedia)

Okay, I’m all for puns. You know I am, but even I can’t fully back this Spocktopus tattoo. (No Regrets Photography)

Check out these unbelievable natural wonders. I swear they’re real! (Urlesque)

Those purveyors of fine freakdom over at Unreality have amassed a list of Seven Celebrities With Weird Physical Flaws. I knew about Megan Fox’s thumbs, but Vince Vaughn? Blech. (Unreality)

These specimens, on the other hand, have nary a flaw as far as I can see. It’s Celebitchy’s first ever “Hot Girl Friday.” Come for the Shakespearean headline, stay for the Kunislingus. OH I WILL KEEP SAYING IT, JASON HARRIS. (Celebitchy)

I may be in the minority here, but I’ve never really loved Daniel Radcliffe. Well, at least not as Harry Potter. He was brilliant on “Extras” and in these clips of “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” he proves himself to be a fine singer and a pretty decent dancer. Except, I think I can hear him thinking “Step, kick, kick, leap, kick, touch. … And… turn, turn, touch down, back step. (Beat) Five, six, seven, eight!” (Evil Beet)

Guess what, my gorgeous germaphobes? Apparently those hands-free faucets are no more sanitary than the regular, non-handy-wavy kinds. Added bonus? They can give you Legionnaire’s Disease. That’s the coolest name for a disease, right? We’re all agreed on that? Best name? Okay then. (The Awl)

I mean, Legionnaire…Legionaaaaaire. It just rolls trippingly off the tongue. Speaking of tongues and tripping, Happy National Poetry Month. PaddyDog and I both subscribe to Knopf’s Poem-A-Day email list. They send you one poem for every day of the month. Sign up today! I’ve whipped up a word cloud of this morning’s poem “I Love A Broad Margin” by Maxine Hong Kingston. You know me, I can’t resist whipping a cloud. (Knopf)


This is much less eloquent, but still delightful. Some clever cats made a music video of one of my favorite Jonathan Coulton songs, “Re: Your Brains.”

And, finally, it’s a cute animal video! No fooling! Well, it’s the BBC’s April Fool’s prank from 2008, but it is chock full of adorable penguins. So enjoy. I loves ya!

Joanna Robinson thinks those jellied brains look only slightly less disgusting than mac and cheese sushi. Can you think of something grosser? Send it here: [email protected] or @quityourJRob
