From Time.com:

Now that Google has effectively conquered Earth, the all-powerful Web giant is setting its sites on a new frontier: Mars.

Calling it "The Adventure of Many Lifetimes," Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin just announced a joint venture with Virgin CEO Sir Richard Branson to colonize the Red Planet because, as the press release states, "Earth has issues, and it's time humanity got started on a Plan B."

Uhhhh, right. Happy April Fool's Day, folks.

There's nothing funnier than billion-dollar corporations taking time out of their busy multinational money-making days for a little light humor.

See the video that started thing off last night on the "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson."
