I always liked the one from around 1995 about Microsoft buying the Vatican.

Also, some years ago the Motley Fool had a rather entertaining one about a company called e-Meringue and taking it public, and the stock going through the roof only to crash and be de-listed as the SEC investigated the CEO and he ran and tried to hijack a cruise ship with meringues or some such. It was utterly ridiculous, and the Fool site was posting press releases and stock quotes through the day, with the ticker HAFD (Happy April Fool's Day).
