KibbleHub Coming Summer 2013 or Was it?

 

 

  • With more than 50,000 pet food suppliers in 50 cities, KibbleHub guarantees satisfaction for your pet’s discerning palate.
  • Certified organic packaging materials allow your hungry pet to open all orders without digestive or health concerns.
  • Finely calibrated touch screen technology ensures easy item selection and checkout for your furry friend.
  • Just like our human-user service, KibbleHub is completely free to use and supported by a 24/7 all-pet customer service staff.

Days after April first, there were still lots of April Fool’s Day pranks floating around on the WWW. One of our favorites went to GrubHub for their pseudo service called KibbleHub.

As most of you know, GrubHub is a website that allows free online ordering from restaurants near you! With more than 30000 restaurants in 500+ cities, food delivery or takeout is just a click away. So if you can order food for yourself, why shouldn't you be able to train your pet cat or dog to order kibble and other treats for themselves. It would take a few training sessions of them to learn how to use an electronic devise such as an ipad or other tablet computer plus the KibbleHub app, and your pet can order delivery, allowing you to relax. You would be free of worry should you ever forget to feed them or needed to stay one more night away on a business trip. You might want to put a limit on their/ your credit card so they couldn't go overboard on ordering, but that is a minor issue.

KibbleHub would give dogs and cats the power to take meal planning into their paws.

It was hilarious as you can see from either watching the video below or reading the transcript.

I remember at the time getting a call from a friend who insisted that the site was real and we should sign up. I couldn't persuade him that it was a prank. I finally had to resort to reminding him of the time when we were probably teenagers and tried to find an online casino for us player site that would allow us underage boys to play some slots for real money. We had both fabricated two middle age men's personas and thought we had succeeded in deceiving the site into accepting us. However, the real prank was on us. This was in the early days on online gambling when it was more like the wild west with some rather shady online casino sites that preyed on the unsuspecting. Unlike today with the awareness of secure credit card transactions and casino site toting their safe and secure gaming environment, back then, even if you did win, some gambling sites would rip you off. Now a day online casinos dispense information regarding where they are licensed and the regulations they have in place to ensure their players peace of mind. He finally decided that it was possible this was a hoax, but maybe not. I bet him a snow shoveling day that he was wrong. And guess who got his driveway shoveled out the following winter. I waited for a big storm and then demanded he pay up! You just can't believe everything you read on the internet as being true, and surely you need to be a bit cynical especially around April 1st.

When the original site for this prank became available, we just knew that we needed to buy it and repost as much content as possible from the archived site and other sources. Enjoy, laugh, but do not be pranked, as were a number of folks.

So, you clicked that, huh? Probably time we let you in on a little secret: this whole KibbleHub thing…it’s a ruse. Which is different than a lie, but equally as untrue.

Anyway, we recommend you join the waiting list regardless. You never know, right? And you can help us keep the KibbleHub dream afloat by sharing KibbleHub without mentioning this part of it…

Love,
GrubHub
