Has anyone started thinking about April Fools Day mods?

Last year I used a mod that randomly changed the font and display of posts and combined it with the "you" mod. I posted a message saying:
There is a problem with the formatting on some of the posts. I have not figured it out yet, but it may be due to a link that "you" clicked on while browsing. I'll look into it later today.
Each member who read that thought they were the reason for the problems. The reaction was hilarious. It is going to be tough to top that one.

Last year I installed that April Fools Banning Mod. And, I put a message at the top saying all of Staff were off on a retreat having a barbecue and drinking lots of beer using the Donations funds they all provided. And, while we were away, we were putting x, y, and *their username here* in charge, so everyone better be good or they may get banned for the day until we get back.

All these users thought they were put in charge of the site. And, so many of them went and immediately 'banned' someone they disliked only to find themselves banned. It was hilarious looking at the banned list. I also got several PMs from users saying 'thanks for putting me in charge, I'm glad that you feel I am capable, however I don't think I would be a good candidate for this position because of my issues with user xxx'.

We are right now getting ready for April Fools, but all the mods feel there is no way to top last years.

And those are the users you keep an eye on as possible moderator candidates.
