Update: 6 April In The Year Of Our Lord 2009:
Links to stories added. The correct answer: All of them were real, baby. Real. Except the Tauntaun sleeping bag.
And that is totally a buzz kill. When I do these April Fool news stories, they are all always real. That's the April Fool. I tell you one of them's fake, but none are. There. I admit it.
But perhaps I am lying.
I will not deny or confirm that I was fooled about the Tauntaun sleeping bag when writing this Newsblast. The upside is, due to the big response, ThinkGeek is attempting to get the license to really make it. That is a noble quest. Godspeed.
One of these stories may not be true. The only rule: No googling. Pick the one you think is not real using your own brain.
Then send your answer in the comments below or on this convenient form. Pickers of the right one get a prize.
RevolutionSF Newsblast sucks like all the other sci-fi Web sites that just cut and paste without writing anything original. April Fool's! Today's sponsor is not a Rick Roll. Seriously. See? I said it wasn't a Rick Roll.

We love the Star Wars

Dick Tracy Comic Strip People Sue Warren Beatty
They're not suing him because of the movie. But for goodness' sake, that might be reason enough. They're suing him because he said that he owns Dick Tracy. But they say nuh-uh.
