Google loads the web with April Fools' pranks each year, and the company is getting even more attention than usual for one particular prank this year. Read about the ill-fated Gmail Mic Drop feature, which Google pulled relatively early in the day due to...complications.

Another (perhaps less infuriating) joke came from the company in the form of a YouTube video about a new option from its Google Express delivery service. Admitting that drone delivery technology is interesting, but not ready for prime time, the company says in the video that it's launching parachute deliveries.

Somehow, we think people would be less weirded out by this.
