NY Times: "Several years ago ThinkGeek, a Web site devoted to selling gadgets, nerdy T-shirts and brainy games, decided to sell some fake products for April Fool’s on its Web sites. Now its sale is a yearly tradition.
For April Fool’s in 2005, for example, the company promised to sell The Fundue desktop USB Fondue Set. Luckily for my neighboring cubicles, this was not a real product. (Bread and cheese dip anyone?) In 2006, the company offered to sell customers a USB Desktop Tanning Center, where they could tan while working at a computer. And 2008 helped usher in the ZapCam, a Taser that could record clips of Taser victims directly to YouTube.
As ThinkGeek needs to up the ante each year, in 2010 it decided to create a product called Canned Unicorn Meat. The tag line for this new delicacy? “Pâté is passé. Unicorn, the new white meat.” It promised to be an “excellent source of sparkles!"
