I guess the prank on this one is that you click on the tab expecting to find an article when it's just one stupid video clip after another. No thanks, I can read.

I'm glad people have complained about being missent to the "april fools" article rather than the article they wanted. I thought it was my lack of computer skills or a problem with my system. This is not the first time this has happened. I hope AOL corrects the error in their programming.

Nah, none of us should wait for AOL to correct ANYTHING. Anything at all.

AOL this is the dumbest thing you have ever done by using incorrect links.
I don't have time for this crap and I'm sure others don't either.
I hope your stock plunges and everyone loses tons of cash.
You are a pathetic company.
