KISS

Views: 183/5846
Added: 04/13/2009

George and Neal were once part of the rock band KISS, but left the band in 1974 because they didn't think makeup of a raccoon and chimp respectively was cool enough. They also tried to convince Peter Criss to come with, but he seemed to like the cat makeup. Peter Criss did eventually leave the band in 1980 but kept returning and quitting the band throughout the years. In 1994 George and Neal became nostalgic for the KISS years and grew fond of the raccoon and chimp makeup and are now rarely seen in public without it.

Nobel Peace Prize

Views: 135/2012
Added: 10/04/2009

In 1980, when George and Neal were both 2 years old, they were given the Nobel Peace Prize as a result of older George and Neal traveling back in time and telling the Nobel Peace Prize officials about all of the great things they would do in a few decades. Giving out "prospective" Nobel Peace Prizes was unheard of at the time, but obviously, things change over time.

As a result of Instagram’s success in 2010, on April 1, 2010 George and Neal went back to 1980 and changed the names of all the “FotoMats” to “Sometime-Later-Gram’s". No one got the joke for 30 years.

 

Fotomat Selfie - Before.

 - After . Guinness World Records found this to be the longest-gestating April Fool's joke ever.
