    April Fool's Day comedy

    For the past couple of years, Funny or Die has had a celebrity "take over" their site for April Fool's Day. In 2010, it was Justin Bieber and then in 2011 it was Rebecca Black. There doesn't seem to be an equivalent young-ish, annoying celebrity this year for them to do that again. Jeremy Lin maybe?

    Also, Adult Swim doesn't appear to be doing anything for April Fool's this year. I don't notice anything unusual about their Sunday night line-up, unless they're going to do something surprising at the last minute.

    Tebow would be 1000x better than Lin for my money.

    In 2009 when I was at Funny or Die it was Reba McEntire that "took over," which I think was the funniest just because it had nothing to do with anything relevant in pop culture. It was also extremely amusing to have to research Reba McEntire fan sites for it. But since then they've really gone crazy with it and gotten the celebrities in on it.

    Tebow is a solid guess, or maybe Willow Smith or something.

    They went a little conceptual this year, and the home page was supposedly hacked by Charlize Theron's sister who posted a bunch of videos stolen from Charlize's phone:

    I appreciate the effort, but all of the videos seem devoid of any actual humor.

    It wasn't really a shit show... more of an excrement parade.

    A couple of them are a little funny, but it's mostly the "humor" of her being so pretty and acting so goofy. I liked the stalker one because of the joke that he could not obtain a restraining order against Charlize Theron.

    Hit or miss, but the crack about the grass being so sharp in Aeon Flux when she was talking in her sleep got me.
