‘Tis the season to play annoying tricks on each other!
Whether or not you observe it, April Fools’ Day has been around in the Western world since medieval times, if for no other reason than because humans feel the need for some levity in the midst of everything else going on in their lives.
But if you do enjoy pulling a good prank every now and then—or at least once a year—what’s the best prank to pull?
Redditors were asked to share their best April Fools’ Day jokes, and these just might inspire you!
Spring Way Ahead
One year April Fool’s was on a Sunday, so all throughout the evening before I snuck around methodically changing the clocks ahead by 4 hours.
The next morning (on April 1) the parents woke up around their usual time and to their horror found out we were all 2 hours late for church. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, except my dad was the head pastor. After watching them in sheer panic for a few minutes I caved and told them. They were NOT amused. (inv4zn)
Sweet as Candy
Not me but my sister once unscrewed the shower head and placed a hard life saver candy in there, so that after my shower I was subtly sticky. 🙁 (The_Wise_Frog)
Used to do the same with dried broth tablets. Nothing better than a chicken flavored shower. (hadbetterdaysbefore)
Obviously not me, but in the early 1900’s some guy in Paris posted an ad in the newspaper reading something like
« young and rich widow looking for a nice husband. Meet me in the park with a white rose on your lapel, so I may recognize you »
That guy then sent an anonymous tip to the police that « The White Rose », an anarchist group were preparing an attack on parliament and meeting in the park.
Dozens arrested… (Pippin1505)
