TOI falls for it!

The Times of India has fallen for an April Fools joke! On page 15 of the Delhi edition today, it published a report on navigator shoes (here's the link). This actually a joke, and here's the original site where people have already caught the trap in the various comments.

In fact, even the authenticity of the second piece of this page is debatable, about the touch screen phone for the blind!

Somehow this is not surprising. I am sure a lot of papers who don't believe in doing their research would have fallen for stories like this.

Here's a great list of all the jokes that were placed online yesterday. I personally like The Guardian's Twitter-only announcement, The Economist's theme park and Gmail's autopilot!
