Best April Fools’ joke this year

And the award for this year’s best April Fools’ joke goes to…

CERN, for its announcement that its researchers had confirmed the existence of the Force.

Though four fundamental forces—the strong force, the weak force, the electromagnetic force and gravity—have been well documented and confirmed in experiments over the years, CERN announced today the first unequivocal evidence for the Force. “Very impressive, this result is,” said a diminutive green spokesperson for the laboratory.

I laughed out loud in several places, though my favorite part might be the journal article titled “May the Force be with EU.”

Go read the whole thing.
