Best April Fools joke

Marketplace on NPR had the best April Fools joke, at least the one that got me. A completely straight story on how the IRS is sending out consumer goods instead of rebate checks for those people likely to use it to pay down debt. They interviewed a couple who had received an air conditioner instead of a check. I'm incredulous, beginning to fume.

Ha! And almost believable in this age of Bushite bait and switch.

Oh man I totally believed this one. It wasn't until I was repeating it to my friends that I realized how ridiculous it sounded and figured it out.
