Splenda, best known for its marketing ploy, "made from sugar so it tastes like sugar," has taken the sweetener industry by storm. Splenda has become the nation's number one selling artificial sweetener in a very short period of time.
Between 2000 and 2004, the percentage of US households using Splenda products jumped from 3 to 20 percent. In a one year period, Splenda sales topped $177 million compared with $62 million spent on aspartame-based Equal and $52 million on saccharin-based Sweet 'N Low.
McNeil Nutritionals, in their marketing pitch for Splenda emphasizes that Splenda has endured some of the most rigorous testing to date for any food additive. Enough so to convince the average consumer that it is in fact safe. They claim that over 100 studies have been conducted on Splenda. What they don't tell you is that most of the studies are on animals.
Internationally renowned natural health physician and Mercola.com founder Dr. Joseph Mercola discusses the facts about Splenda and why it should be avoided.
When this guy thinks of a prank, he really commits to it. Shaving his head and gluing it to a wig, he whips it off when they’re not looking to freak them out. Whether the prank or his weird idea freaks them out more is hard to tell. Either way, it feels good to be a prankster.
To any Canadian's out there watching this... RELAX!!!!
I am Canadian too and I find this hilarious. Sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself :)
Other times, you just wanna cry... what happened at the Stanley Cup finals Vancouver riot on June 15th, 2011 was shameful and put a black mark on Canadians' otherwise good reputation. Why didn't we have this kind of reaction to something important like Bilderberg in Ottawa or NAFTA signing?

A parody of "Draggin the Line" by Tommy James and the Shondells. Which I think is where the term "Treehugger" comes from "Huggin a tree when you get near it" was the original lyric which I replaced with "you should have chopped more trees instead of hugging them".rnrnHide The Decline Shirt and Mug Now Available!rnhttp://www.cafepress.com/m4gw
Someone channels Bart Simpson and pulls a classic April Fools prank on their local news station. You'd think the anchors would stop after, say, the 10th joke name, but either journalistic integrity or complete ignorance carries them through the whole list.

German prank show heads to a furniture store with a fake Waterbed...
the show is called "Verstehen Sie Spass?" from Germany. Translation would be "Do you take a joke?". And the sign doesnt say "dont test the water bed" (in german) as someone posted..it says something like "Attention! while testing...put sharp things (Handy, Keys....)out of ur pockets"
