Who says Intel doesn’t have a sense of humor?

I can’t/won’t reveal any details of this, but today at work, there was an extremely well conceived and executed early April Fools joke played on everyone at Intel.

The amount of planning and secrecy that had to have gone into this is non-trivial, and it was pulled off marvelously. It had me fooled for quite a while, and once I “got” the joke, I was literally laughing out loud.

I didn’t expect something so clever and irreverent from Intel, and it totally made my day.

At some point in the future, maybe I’ll be able to share publicly what it was, so you can all enjoy it too. If you’re an Intel employee, and you know what the joke was, please don’t say anything about it here, so we don’t spoil it for anyone. :-)

Hats off to everyone involved! :-)

    To be honest with you, I thought it was sort of dumb. It was about a 5-minute distraction on our floor, and I overheard a couple of people guffawing.

    The laughter all quickly ended with the comment “Well, back to the grind!” It was like Andy Grove was standing over the other laughing drones ordering them NOT to have a good time and to get back to work.

    Go ahead and share the joke…c’mon.

    A.I.D.

  2. I dont want to admit it but they had me fooled for a good 2 minutes or so. I was so ready to post on my blog within the first minute.. i thought it was a dream come true :)
