"Former border agents convicted of snuggling." How’d they get caught? Clearly, they were too cuddly. Seriously, though, just a funny, unfortunate crease. (ht Romenesko)

True story: The retina display icon/logo is a stock photo on iStock. That’s right, the biggest corporation in the world by stock market capitalization, one known for its impeccable design, ganks photos from the same spot Mashable ganks cheesy pictures for its trend stories.

This is a totally cheap post on Mediaite’s part, but it’s totally hilarious. And sad. There have been more debates this election season than “Freaks and Geeks” episodes. Which is such a crime.

No, no, no. Different guy. Not wanted in Sweden.
Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales • Revealing, under embarrassing circumstances, that he had been mistaken for Wikileaks’ Julian Assange by an immigration official in Britain. This despite the fact that Wales runs one of the most popular sites on the Internet. And he likes using this power to stare at you. Wales used the point to emphasize, despite his site’s massive growth, he’s managed to remain mostly anonymous. Good work, son. You proved Julian Assange has more influence than you. Time to update your Wikipedia page. source (via • follow)

Steve Jobs tribute song: If the beat at the beginning sounds vaguely familiar to you, it’s because it’s the same beat that your iPhone makes when it rings. (All the beats were based on Apple products, by the way.) Threw us off for a second the first time. The song itself (made on a Mac) packs a lot of references into four minutes, including one about how the rapper (his name’s Cal, and he’s part of a duo called Timeflies) doesn’t support Flash.

In planning for this closure, we gathered the best emergency around. We tried to think of everything but some of these requests are beyond even what we had anticipated.
Cmdr. Andy Smith • Expressing bewilderment at some of the ideas thrown in the general direction of officials planning for this weekend’s “Carmageddon” in Southern California —including a block party on the Santa Monica Boulevard ramp leading to Interstate 405, a group of bicyclists who want to ride down a steep incline, and some marketing dudes who wanted to use graffiti to promote the new “Planet of the Apes” movie. All of these incredibly awesome ideas were nixed due to safety concerns. Bummer. Fly jetBlue instead, dudes. source (via • follow)

If only all April Fools’ Day jokes were this successful. Our question: Who, seriously, would fall for such a thing? On April Fools’ Day, even? source
