Google have announced a new broadband plan, in which you run a wire down your toilet – and connect through sewer pipes !
Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines.

Even though it’s already 8 pm in Australia, it must still be “April Fool’s Day” in America (before 12 pm anyway !)
Does my water company support TiSP?
TiSP was developed with the support and assistance of a large number of major metropolitan water companies.
A full list of companies that support TiSP is available here. If yours isn’t listed, please contact them to verify their ongoing and unstinting support before you even think about signing up for TiSP service.
When you click on the “available here” link, the gag is revealed :
…you have reached a page that we meant to create but didn’t get around to it, since this year’s April Fool’s joke got hacked together at the last minute…
They’ve definately gone to a lot of trouble – like in previous years.
What APRIL FOOL’S day pranks have you heard of – or tried on friends/family ?
