Arianna Huffington

This week brought a slew of April Fools' jokes from our media brethren. Hulu remade its page to look like it was 1996 -- ancient history in Internet terms. Google introduced "Gmail motion," a tool that allows users to send emails by using their body. YouTube offered the top 5 viral videos of 1911. And we had a little fun of our own.
