Google's new broadband offering - slightly on the nose......?

But very, very funny!

The folks at Google do have a good sense of fun and I had to chuckle when I came across this announcement yesterday. Keep in mind it was April Fools Day!

Google TiSP (BETA) is a fully functional, end-to-end system that provides in-home wireless access by connecting your commode-based TiSP wireless router to one of thousands of TiSP Access Nodes via fiber-optic cable strung through your local municipal sewage lines.

What I really cracked me up was the instructions for installation that they had created!
Have a look and make sure you also click on the TISP Help Group link for further laughs!
And last of all, you gotta check out the FAQS!

This was not the only April Fools story I heard yesterday.
Background Scenario
My mate Roland is a keen surfer and we are often out there sharing the waves together.

Anyway he had booked a ticket to go surfing in Lombok in Bali last year with his brothers but had managed to get a hernia just before he was due to go and that was the end of that.

Three operations later the botched first operation, which left him with a numbing and constant pain in his leg, was fixed up and he is now back on a board.

Anyway the proposed trip to Bali was rescheduled for April this year and yesterday he had an email from one of his brothers informing him that Qantas had cancelled all flights to Denpasar Airport in Bali between the 6th and 16th of April.
Now this is not necessarily unusual as the radical Muslims in Indonesia frequently try to blow up Australians, but I reckon in this case Roland's bro was giving his leg a big pull!
Happy April Fool's Day Roland!
