Voice of America Renames Itself?

The Voice of America is getting a new name. From now on, we will be known as America's Voice.

Wait. Just kidding! April Fools'!

April Fools' Day is a tradition around the world. In the United States the day is celebrated on April 1 as an occasion for people to play pranks and tricks on each other.

These jokes typically end in the prankster shouting "April Fools'!"

Even companies have gotten in on the April Fools' fun. Google Maps issued a call for so-called "Pokémon Masters." The Pokémon Challenge asks participants to "catch" the animated creatures, popularized by Japanese video game company Nintendo, by using Google Maps to track them down.

But soon after it was publicized, the challenge was widely dismissed as an April Fools' hoax.

You can find your own April Fools' prank ideas online. And that is no joke.
