Relive the greatest April Fools' web pranks of all time

April Fools’ Day brings out jokesters everywhere, from Google to the Smithsonian Museum, and the internet is their preferred method for spreading the inanity. With a new round hitting online for 2018, we explore some of the finest pranks to ever grace the web. In 2016, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum let its Star Trek fandom get a little out of hand when it introduced a Tribble-breeding program that featured a video of the furry little aliens reproducing at an alarming rate.

“I was skeptical,” said Gen. J.R. “Jack” Dailey, director of the museum, of the fictional program. “I’m more of a dog person. But now that they’re here, I’ve warmed up to these little critters.”
