Let-Me-Google-That-For-You redirects users to Bing instead of Google – April Fool’s joke or more sinister intentions?

Update: It seems like the Bing redirect was an April Fool’s joke because LMGTFY.com is back to normal.

LMGTFY.com (“Let Me Google That For You”) is a website that allows people to run Google search queries for other people and link the queries to them. Just for the heck of it I decided to click “Who is Ashraf?” at the top of dotTech. To my surprise, LMGTFY redirected my search query to Bing instead of Google:

Is this LMGTFY’s April Fool’s joke, or is it a more sinister plot to turn us Topekans into Bing’ers? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
