Max- You will need to prepare for a round-up of all all time great Silicon Valley April Fools Day pranks (is there an equivalent in the UK?).

You can get readers to submit the pranks they remember seeing (or creating) and we can vote on the best from each decade!

@DrFPGA: What do you think of the Cool Beans image? Personally, it makes me smile, and that's got to be a good thing :-)

@Mx- It makes me think we need a song to go along with it, like in the raisin commercial...

In Spain, we celebrate Fools Day on 28th December  -- it's called the "Santos Inocentes" day, when the Catholic Church in Spain commemorates the New Testament story of King Herod's slaughter of the innocent children of Judaea... and we call this day's pranks "inocentadas"

Max... maybe has Matt Harding copied your famous "happy dance" for his video??

I've always imagined something like that when I hear you talking about it ;-)

If the truth be known, I think my "Happy Dance" is modelled on Matt's -- havde you tried copying what Matt does? It's a lot harder than you might think :-)

OK, you've talked me into it -- now I want a "Max's Cool Beans" song (or at least a music bite) -- who do we know who is musically inclined?
