Tumblr user Obvious Plant (aka Jeff Wysaski/PleatedJeans) is known for conducting some pretty clever pranks in which he “plants” fake signs around shops and other public spots around L.A.

One that recently got a lot of attention involved him placing some fake self-help books like “So You’re Son is a Centaur” among real books at a store in West Hollywood.

He’s also trolled a wine shop with some custom recommendations.

For his latest stunt, Wysaski stopped by a local pet shop and added a few of his own descriptions to some of the animals’ tanks and cages.

“Sometimes, you’ve just got to take it into your own hands to expand a store’s product line,” he writes.

These included everything from Guy Fieri hamsters and baby Godzillas to invisible fish and judgmental tree frogs.

Here are a few below, but you can check out the full set and more of his work on his Tumblr.

Prank of the Day: Someone Bought Anti-Gay Group’s Expired Domain Name, Redirected It to Gay pr0n

Anti-gay protesters were picketing outside the Carolina Rebellion rock festival at the Charlotte Motor Speedway earlier this month, so one of the attendees decided to pull a clever little prank on them.

The concert goer noticed that the website they were promoting on their signs, WarningsofWrath.com, had expired, so he/she purchased the domain.

The prankster then redirected it to an extremely WARNING gay pr0n site called “ScaryF-ckers.com.”

This isn’t exactly in line with their message, but it’s sure to spark some wrath among the group.

A “pastor” with “Warnings of Wrath” has a Blogger account with a post that explains the meaning behind their name, and that page also currently includes a link to the pr0n site.

Hijacking domains as a form of protest has been happening a lot lately, particularly with theRepublican presidential candidates who failed to secure all of their domains before announcing their candidacy.

Distraction of the Day: You Can Now Play Pac-Man on Google Maps

Google is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little early.

A new option on Google Maps lets you turn the world into a playable game of Pac-Man.

From the support page:

Welcome, Player 1! You can now play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN in Google Maps with streets as your maze. Avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky, (and Clyde!) as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world. But eat the pac-dots fast, because this game will only be around for a little while.

You can plan anywhere with enough streets by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, but Google also offers some clues to the best locations where a special Pac-Man marker has already been place.

  • Don’t drop the ball on the eve of your victory!
  • Triumph is délicieux.
  • Does a Galaxian bonus await at the top of those 272 steps?
  • Chomp your way to independence down seven lanes of July.
  • PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can’t agree on which side is prettier: the American or the Canadian. Which side do you fall on, eh?
  • After a chat with the Sphinx, PAC-MAN sounds more like “Dokki Dokki”.
  • Pause game play to admire Chagall’s stained glass windows and have a bit of chocolate.
  • Can you score 10^(10^100) points?
  • Whether they’re flashing blue or sporting their natural colors, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are always kakkoii. Even Vogue agrees they’re living in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
  • Previous PAC-MAN lives don’t get to rest in a white marble mausoleum.
  • Head to the valley of the sun and earn your grade in the art of the game.
  • How well can you navigate the radiating streets of the distrito federal?
  • Victory is like gothic glockenspiel musik to our ears.
  • Pay special attention to Blinky – he might blend in with the dreaming red kangaroos!
  • You’ll find the Beach PAC-MAN World Cup here before long.

You can expect the entire Internet to be flooded with April Fool’s Day pranks like this on Wednesday.

It says the game will only be available for a limited time, but hopefully they decide to keep the Pac-Man hack as a permanent option.

It’s like the new movie “Pixels,” only in real life.

News Blooper of the Day: Guy Says FHRITP on Live Canadian News

Toronoto Maple Leafs player Nazem Kadri was benched on Monday because he overslept and missed a team meeting.

So a reporter for Canada’s CP24 was out on the streets asking fans what they thought of the decision.

One man seemed to have something intelligent to say… at first.

“He gets paid a lot to be there,” he says. “So I think he should just f*ck her right in the pu**y.”

The reporter was not pleased, and she quickly sends the camera back to the anchor.

“Oh my goodness,” she says. “That was awful.”

The FHRITP meme started last year when filmmaker John Cain uploaded various videos of reporters getting pranked live on the air which eventually turned out to be hoaxes.

This one however, appears to be all too real.

Surprise of the Day: Real Hamburglar Pays a Visit to Viral Hamburglar News Anchor

Congratulations Internet, you made this happen.

A Fox 2 news anchor in St. Louis named April Simpson became a viral sensation last week thanks to a video which showed her glaring her co-host Tim Ezell after he called her the “Hamburglar” on air.

Comedian Kevin Hart also posted the original clip to Facebook getting it lots of attention online.

The network then decided to play a little prank on April Monday morning, by having the actual Hamburglar appear on set to rub some fry salt in her wounds.

The crew also proceeds to throw hamburgers at her while she sits at her desk in disgust.

“Here’s my thing,” she says. “There are several people who are no longer my friends.”

She points to everyone in the room who participated in the stunt and says that she doesn’t even want to do the news anymore.

But it looks like she got over it, according to Twitter.

Prank of the Day: Guy Pretends He Won an Oscar to Get Free Stuff

It’s encouraging to know that years of hard work as an actor or filmmaker could one day get you a free orange Gatorade.

New Media Rockstars decided to see how people would react to someone carrying a (fake) Oscar around the streets of L.A.

It seemed to work out pretty well for the guy. He ended up getting free movie tickets, food, drinks and was pretty much allowed to go and do whatever he wanted.

“You got an Oscar, thats your ID,” said a bouncer when he tried to get into an exclusive party.

Watch and cringe as everyone tries to take pictures with him and his award despite not knowing who he is or what he “won” it for.

Some people even claim they saw his speech.

Prank of the Day: Guys Wear Squeaky Shoes at Dog Park

Dogs love all things that squeak, so if you are wearing some squeaky toys, they are going to love you.

Although their owners might get a little peeved.

In this new prank, the guys from JStuStudios head into a dog park wearing squeaky shoes that make the annoying sound with every step, and the dogs inside can’t get enough of it.

The people actually didn’t seem to mind it that much, although if the video were any longer it would get a bit irritating to watch.

For their next trick: meat shoes?
