The Organization for Nuclear Research Pulled Off This April Fool's Gag

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is the last organization you'd think would pull off a viral April Fool's gag. After all, CERN developed and operates the world's largest and most powerful particle collider -- the Large Hadron Collider -- to advance mankind's understanding of particle physics.

But it turns out that aside from cutting-edge scientific prowess, the organization also has an impressive sense of humor. On April 1st, the venerable organization pulled off a hilarious April Fool's gag by announcing that it would change all fonts on its website to Comic Sans. The announcement came in the form of an online release accompanied by a video featuring Fabiola Gianotti, the former spokeswoman of one of the Large Hadron Collider experiments

It even claimed that the change of font was only the first in a series of changes including adding a selfie of Justin Bieber to the CERN logo and rebuilding the Large Hadron Collider in the shape of a triangle.
