I find no humor in what Google employees find funny.
When my kids were young, they were big on April fools jokes. They've grown up.

I totally agree. Don't appreciate Google hijacking my business AdWords account for a foolish prank.

I agree. Google could have rolled out a new feature or fixed some issues instead of spending their time coding this.

I can't stand April fools with the engines as you never know what's real and what's fake without taking a closer look. If Google makes any big changes this time of year; I just ignore them thinking they are fake, but the issue is that some are real and not just april fools jokes and then you miss something that's actually important.

I'm all for a sense of humor; but Google tries to fool people which just ends up as a time waster when you realize its untrue.
