I don’t do April Fool’s Day.
I find most pranks to be just mean. I don’t like feeling like someone is trying to trick me. And I don’t like fake announcements. Especially pregnancy announcements.
I like to think that people are telling me the truth and not trying to get one over on me… so I feel on edge the entire day.
I don’t think it’s nice to make someone the butt of your jokes.
I don’t like using gullible as an insult.
I know, this does tend to be somewhat of an unpopular opinion. But I really just feel like most people use April Fool’s Day as an excuse to be mean. Being a “fool” is not an excuse for being an asshole.
Now, with that being said, I have enjoyed some of the corporate April Fool’s jokes that have come out over the years. For example, Taco Bell buying the Liberty Bell was a fun one (1996). American Eagle launching their doggy line, American Beagle was adorable (2014). Google usually comes up with something funny and witty.
Since today tends to be a bit of a grumpy day for me, I’d love to know if you’ve seen or experienced any April Fool’s jokes that were actually funny, cute and NOT mean? Share in the comments!
