Gmail Paper: In depth info here. The premise: A new button has been added to Gmail that says "Paper Archive" in which you can choose to select a number of emails, Google will print them for you and then fedex the stack of papers to you. Check out the links as its quite humorous.
Google TiSP: Free in-home wireless internet through your toilet. More info here. The premise is that you flush some type of device down your toilet. A chord remains hanging out of your toilet in which you plug your router into. By flushing it down the toilet, it somehow becomes "hooked up" to the rest of the TiSP network. Very funny diagram if you check out the link.
Blizzard has introduced the tinfoil hat item. Check out the link for a very funny item description. Notable item benefits are:

Use: Grants the wearer immunity to all forms of mind control for the next 10 sec...or does it?
