129. Play a funny April Fool’s Day prank

My Story

Updated January 20, 2009

In elementary school, our idea of an April Fool’s Day prank was to point and say, “Look out the window! There’s an elephant!” And then when the mark turned to look to loudly shout “April Fool’s!” and laugh.

After elementary school, I don’t remember any April Fool’s Day pranks aside from the one silly article Discover magazine would insert into the April issue each year.

Then we had the internet. And somehow the amount of fake news stories reported on April Fool’s Day has gotten to be nothing short of outrageous. It’s gotten so that you can barely separate the wheat from the chafe.

But I’d like to play a real-life prank. Something really good.
