Yeah, Elmer Fudd has been there for a while.

My favorite is the search times.

Chrome sounds seems to mostly work on every site I've been to.

- Typing on this form makes typewriter sounds
- Going from left to right by clicking on tabs plays like piano keys
- Closing tab makes breaking glass sound
- Opening extension settings plays technology (beeping) sounds
- Scrolling makes a laser-esc sound (don't know how else to describe it)
   – the longer the scroll the more intense the sound

If I find more sounds I'll post them. Interested to see other sounds everyone else finds too!

I laughed so hard when I seen TOPEKA instead of the usual name google. I had recently read that Topeka officials had "unofficially" changed the name of the city to Goodle for the month of March, which certainly helped a person to understand what this name change was about. This is too funny. Got to LOVE it. WTG google, I mean TOPEKA!

Good night, Happy Fool's Day!!!

A police officer pulls over this guy who had been weaving in and out of the lanes. He goes up to the guy's window and says, "Sir, I need you to blow into this breathalyzer tube."
The man says, "Sorry officer, I can't do that. I am an asthmatic. If I do that I'll have a really bad asthma attack."
"Okay, fine. I need you to come down to the station to give a blood sample."
"I can't do that either. I am a hemophiliac. If I do that, I'll bleed to death."
"Well, then we need an urine sample."
"I'm sorry, officer, I can't do that either. I am also a diabetic. If I do that I'll get really low blood sugar."
"All right then I need you to come out here and walk this white line."
"I can't do that, officer."
"Why not?"
"Because I'm too drunk to do that!"
  

Happy April Fool's Day!
