Happy April Fools' Day

...from gmail.

It goes like this: gmail now offers a service whereby you can order paper copies (gasp!) of all your emails, and they'll deliver them to you for free. Check out the FAQs:

Are attachments included?

All part of the deal. Photo attachments are printed on high-quality, glossy photo paper, and secured to your Gmail Paper with a paper clip. MP3 and WAV files will not be printed. We recommend maintaining copies of your non-paper Gmail in these cases.

Is there a limit?

You can make us print one, one thousand, or one hundred thousand of your emails. It’s whatever seems reasonable to you.

But what about the environment?

Not a problem. Gmail Paper is made out of 96% post-consumer organic soybean sputum, and thus, actually helps the environment. For every Gmail Paper we produce, the environment gets incrementally healthier.

Post-consumer organic soybean sputum. Yum.
