April Fool's fake kernel panic.   Free

Popcorn Kernel is a treat for Mac-loving pranksters.

Just in time for April Fool's, a fake kernel panic for your favorite prank victim! Have it pose as a regularly used app, and hide the original, and watch as their favorite application makes them scream for fear of losing data. More fun can be had if you trigger it remotely with Apple Remote Desktop, because they won't know it's coming! Rather than telling your victim to restart, this "panic" lets them know they've been had, and tells them how to make the window go away. Great for laughs around the office.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.3 or later

also, it's better if you have the infamous kernal panic picture instead of a smily face. That'd be even more funnier.

Haha! That's funny! (And if you know how, you can switch out files to make it look like a REAL kernel panic!) I even switched the menubar up so there is only the application menu, reading "Kernel_panic" !

This ought to be a laugh over VNC! I'd like it if the icon didn't appear in the Dock though... But still: AMAZING! (With tweaking.)

Yeah, it's babel all right. Sorry, I don't speak French (or German or Japanese, for that matter), so I just used the Translation widget.

The only problem is that I've found real kernel panics to be rare enough that many users might not recognize what this is pretending to be.
