That’s right folks. Spring has officially begun, we are already through the third month of the year, and we have landed at one our favorite days of the year – April Fools Day!
The jokesters and pranksters around the world are out in full force today, proving just how nutty humans can be!
Maybe it’s because we are every-day kind of fools, or maybe it’s because we love you all too much to make your heart skip another beat today, but we actually don’t have any jokes lined up for the holiday. We will leave those for the other 365 days of the (leap) year!
Instead, we will celebrate the holiday with all of you by going through some of the best and worst April Fools Day pranks and jokes out there. So, sit back and try not to laugh (or cry) too hard!
The Corporate Jokesters
Plenty of companies and news outlets love to get in on the fun of April Fools day. Most of them are harmless and silly, but others (looking at you Google) can get pretty ugly.

The “What-A-Ya Nuts?! Why Would You Do That?!”
No April Fools Day goes by without a feel pranks gone wrong. It goes to show that just because you have an idea for a prank sounds hilarious in your head, it doesn’t mean the person on the receiving end of the joke will think so too. So, if you’re thinking about pulling a prank along the lines of these, make sure you know the other person very well!
If there is one thing to take away from the nuttiest holiday of all, it’s that you don’t joke about tragedy. Even on April Fools Day.
Some people may despise the smell of air freshener, while others can’t live without it. One thing is for sure though; there is something fishy about the smell of shrimp.

And with that, we are ready to go out and enjoy the rest of April Fools Day! Hopefully you’ve picked up some great ideas, as well as ideas of what not to do! Stay safe out there!
