Every year, it seems, the WPI (Worcester Polytechnic Institute
) webmasters take the intranet copy of our homepage hostage on April Fool's Day
. They replace WPI with some other inane acronym, and one year, it was Weather Predictably Inclement
The homepage had a picture of our President posed like a weather guy, and the page looked almost exactly like weather.com's at the time, only with different logos, and amusing stories. The webmasters wanted 3 unmarked snowshovels as ransom for the homepage that year, I think, since they suspected that it would snow even more than usual for some reason.
All in all a great joke.
