Summary of April Fools 2013 Tomfoolery

Every year it's funny to come on these forums on April 1st and see what some of our more "creative" members have decided to think up this year for an April Fools prank on the unsuspecting masses, and this year's celebration of the defacto holiday boasted some creative ideas.

In the seven forums I moderate, I didn't see any April Foolery this year. Not sure whether I should be disappointed or relieved...? :wink:

I came up with a few good ones in the past. One of them, in an example of "life imitates art," sort of came true a few years ago (Pan Am / Norfolk Southern joint venture).
Pan Am Railways — Boston & Maine/Maine Central — Delaware & Hudson
Central Maine & Quebec/Montreal, Maine & Atlantic/Bangor & Aroostook
Providence & Worcester — New England — GE Locomotives
