Chavez’s Wall Clock Beats Internal Body Clock

Researchers say they have identified the chemical switch that controls the genetic mechanism regulating people’s internal body clocks. Coincidentally, President Hugo Chavez came up with an alternative way of regulating the internal body clocks of his citizens, i.e. by creating Venezuela’s own unique time zone by putting the clock back half-an-hour on a permanent basis and forcing the whole nation to rise early. Brilliant!

The First Year of IE7 Gone Bad

The IE7 development team thought it would make for good PR to pat themselves on the back. Turns out the readers are mostly frustrated users/designers trying to “fix” their otherwise (CSS) standards based work by means of IE hacks.

In order to make it as believable as possible, they dressed up as chauffeurs and asked for help finding these people about 40 minutes after a plane had landed.

After the fifth recording, they had to leave Heathrow as airport security figured out what was going on.  The last recording is from Gatwick.

Give these guys the Big Practical Joker prize.
Ok, here’s where I have copied and pasted the name they handed to the information desk and how it was read:
