Having A Miserable April Fool's Day

Each year I find the first of April to be really unpleasant. For an information junkie like me, it's the one day a year when everyone conspires to pee in the water supply.

I like a well done April Fool's joke. The kind of thing that's snuck into a pile of legitimate news that you get to the end of before realising you've been had.
Or the clever ones that are obviously a joke from the start, but which are very well constructed and detailed. The IP over Avian Carrier RFC, for example.
It's been a long time since I've seen something like that on the internet however.
I have a feeling the internet is a 14 year old male with social issues.

Yea, me too. A little sillyness is ok (like making the Wikipedia article on Spoo the featured article for the day) but anything else annoys me.
