18. Play-Doh 3D printer
3D printing is becoming all the rage, but kids have typically been left out of the fun. Play-Doh is bringing its own 3D-printing capabilities to ages 3 and above. ThinkGeek describes it as "the most economical and fun entry-level 3D printer on the market." It's also iPad compatible so you can hook up your tablet to the quick-assembly device and create your own Play-Doh designs using basic computer-aided design (CAD) software.
Alas, despite it's awesomeness, it's not real and can't (and likely never will be) available for purchase.

19. Blizzard's forum crab
Blizzard has a crab. (Not crabs, and not what you're likely thinking.) An actual crab, sitting in the corner of its World of Warcraft game forums ready to help out and offer assistance to anyone who might want it. Think of it as a high-resolution modern day version of Clippy, the paperclip assistant in Microsoft Office.
Why a crab? Not sure, but rumors suggest the crab is simply known as Crabby the Ghost Crab. How very appropriate.

20. Pirate Bay 'relocates' servers to U.S.
Now dubbed "The Freedom Bay," the world's most difficult-to-shut-down file-sharing site said today it had relocated its servers to the U.S. In a single line, The Pirate Bay said in a blog post: "America, f**k yeah!" and that it had worked closely with the U.S. government to "establish a strong military graded server park."
Obviously, that would never happen considering the U.S. is home to some of the site's most aggressive copyright lawyers — most users download content illegally through the site. It also comes only a few weeks after it pulled a similar April Fools'-like stunt by claiming it had relocated to North Korea.
Check out its new homepage here (that is, if you're not in a country that blocks the site.)
