Some real April Fools jokes that happened on internet.

1. In 1990, official RFC (Request for Comments) document #1149 outlined an experimental Internet standard describing a method for the encapsulation of IP datagrams in avian carriers, stating, "Avian carriers can provide high delay, low throughput, and low altitude service. The connection topology is limited to a single point-to-point path for each carrier, used with standard carriers, but many carriers can be used without significant interference with each other, outside of early spring…Multiple types of service can be provided with a prioritized pecking order. An additional property is built-in worm detection and eradication. With time, the carriers are self-regenerating. Audit trails are automatically generated, and can often be found on logs and cable trays."

2. In 1993, several new top-level Internet domains were added, so that those logging on from other planets could have Internet access. These domains included .ea (Earth), .ha (Hades), .ju (Jupiter), and .og (Outer Galaxy).
