Ah, yes……. April 1st. Known all around as April Fool’s Day. Is it truly a day for the normally socially unacceptable pranks, jokes and general silliness? Or is merely an excuse for the jerks of the world to remove their masks and embrace their inherent assholiness for a day? Personally, I have a fairly twisted sense of humor (have you heard my last EP?), but many times the shenanigans on April 1st go FAR beyond the scope of “haha” funny.
My attempts to research the true beginnings of April Fool’s Day have come up woefully ambiguous at best. What IS clear is that there has been no shortage of pranksters going back to the 16th century, and possibly earlier. Perhaps it isn’t meant to analyze, maybe we are meant to just observe and enjoy as long as people don’t go TOO far. I think I’ll sit this one out.
What are some of the (non mean-spirited) gags and pranks that ultimately left you LOL or ROFL-ing?
