Beware. It's that day again.

Google is trying to convince folks that "now you can control Gmail with your body."

YouTube has posted the " top 5 viral pictures of 1911."

Morning Edition "reported" on a surgical procedure that lets you watch 3D movies without those "ridiculous" glasses.

Update at 3:05 p.m. ET: As Gawker reports, YouTube "did not think through it's April Fool's joke" because the application that allowed for the "1911" music to be played with videos is "not at all funny when applied to [those] showing sad and horrible things."

Update at 10:25 a.m. ET: We hear from a reliable source that the jokers over at The Motley Fool are having some fun today.
