    I'm glad I'm not the only one confused.

    I'm using Safari 3, and they look like buttons, but don't do anything. Do they work in Firefox or a newer version of Safari or something?

    MacRumors' annual April Fools Joke. Hover your mouse over the icons. They spell "APRIL 1"

    I have a sweet flag with mine.

    I wonder what the different flags mean, or if they were just randomly assigned. I haven't seen any other Canadian flags yet.

    Nothing of mine has changed at all yet, although I've only been on for about 5 minutes since this started.

    Look at the alt for the images.

    They spell out A-p-r-i-l-1.

    Happy April Fools, mateys!

    EDIT: ****, I'm way too late. But hey, I caught that by myself, too!
