<tongue in cheek sarcasm>

Could this be the sign of trying to attain profitability?

This definitely makes me think that Google is looking for an IPO.

The suits are already taking over.

There will be no more fun at work, and while you're at it get rid of those stupid looking big balls everywhere.

Too Bad

Laughter is the key to the soul and where healing begins

If the whole population of the world could sit in a room together and share some laughs ... we'd be a lot further than we are today

Okay, now that is a little funny.

Maybe google decided not to play any practical jokes because just about anything would double the rate of high blood pressure in this forum.

Apparently it was noted (think CNN) that many sites decided to stay away from April Fool pranks this year due to the world situation...
