Microsoft Office is the latest to chip in on the April Fools festivities, bringing back the infamous Clippy in their office program character pranks.
Our favorite little helpful paper clip makes a return to Microsoft Office, for all users visiting the freely accessible office.com. After years of being rid of the obnoxious and in-your-face Office character, Clippy's big eyes stared right back at users on this day of all pranks.
Clippy stealthily made his way into Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, and even Twitter as a personal little assistant for tweeting.
Those opposed and annoyed by the infamously helpful paper clip got a real scare, whereas those who admired the aid of the Office character were pleasantly surprised and welcoming of his return.
