So April. Very Fools. Many Smart. Amaze.

Missouri S&T homepage featuring Doge. Such wow.

We don’t always pull pranks on April Fool’s Day. But when we do, we win. So proclaimed WIRED on their Tumblr when they got word of our April 1, 2014, redo of our main website. On that day, the images on the home page were doctored by images of an internet-famous shiba inu dog — named “Doge” by cyber-memers — and accompanied by Doge-speak, a type of pidgin English that accompanies the Doge meme. Amaze.
