Poisson D'Avril

I've never really liked April Fool's Day.

My parents used to get me every year with a very simple trick that I can no longer remember.

I just know it had something to do with waking me up first thing in the morning with something I was too tired to know wasn't right and I'd panic and then they'd say "April Fool's!" and laugh.

I never found it funny, I always just felt embarrassed.

I still feel the same way. I don't take well to teasing or jokes on me in general so I'm hoping to get through today without having to navigate through any.

If it's a day you enjoy? Good on you, have fun and play safe.

I'll be in my corner hiding 'til noon.

I agree.
There are healthy pranks and then ones that leave people sulking with people laughing AT them, not WITH them.

The prankee should fun it funny too. If not, it wasn't funny at all.

There are definitely some pranking guidelines for Good Prank vs Bad Prank and a wise prankster should gauge their prankee before pranking. Otherwise they're just being punks. :S

I myself don't really care to participate in the prankfest and have only done so a few times. And people tend to leave me alone because they fear the wrath of awakening my mischevious grand creative intellect upon them. It's worked for me for many years now.

Same with those "yellow buggy punch no punch backs" type of games. Where someone sees a vw bug and then punches and says you can't punch back because "that's the game".

To which I respond that I play my own arbitrary game with it's own set of rules. It's called "If you punch me, I will punch you in return". Needless to say it's worked well for me. ;)

If you ever need any help V I've got you back. One time I just took someones door. Removed the hinges and took it. Quick, easy, tricksy, and easily fixed.

I also am laughing because the word verification word is "cones". haha

I don't much care about April First. Some of the news stories are a laugh - I liked Google's this year - but it annoys me that you can't trust any information on any website for half a day. Since I spend so much time on websites, this is a problem!

Oh well.. it's over now for another year. Hope you survived it ok!

I don't know why...but the only April Fools joke I can ever think of is "I'm Pregnant.........JUST FUCKING WITH YA!" It is cliche. Boring. Embarrassing. Yet I can't ever think of anything else to do.

But once I did go into school with crutches and pretended I sprained my ankle by slipping in a mud puddle. Dumb.

To make up for it, I actually broke my foot during spring break in college slipping on spilled beer on a dance floor. April Fool's Karma...

Sigh.

I will admit yesterday I got pretty annoyed with reading the various rubbish news stories on the internet...

I don't think I've ever pranked anybody either - I would feel too guilty about it.

Lucky you Natalie!


Totally JS!


Hilarious Jordan! And thanks for the offer :D


I thought Google's was great Dominic! But, yeah, I survived it until next year.


Yeah, Mlle, someone used that on her husband but was like, I couldn't keep it up for more than 10 seconds :) And sorry about your karma trick! D'oh!


Yeah, I didn't go on the internet much Jonathan. I hope that people who love doing pranks found some prank friendly people to get.
