Behind the Slice: This year's April Fools joke

Every April Fools Day on Slice, with maybe only one year that I missed, I join the rest of the internet in trying to get one over on the audience. I have a sneaking suspicion that I may have repeated a previous year's joke today when I claimed that the best pizza in NYC was at Uno Chicago Grill — but I'm not going to go look in the Slice archives to prove myself right.

My favorite Slice April Fools remains the one where I took a screenshot of the Pizza Hut homepage and then used that as the Slice homepage — with a special note that was something like:

If you're looking for Slice, we at Pizza Hut bought it and it now forwards here ...

After a few seconds it auto-forwarded to the actual Slice homepage, but it was fun to read the comments that day.
