April Fools Day

"The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year."  - Mark Twain

"The first of April, some do say,April 1st is dedicated to mischief and merriment for pranksters of all ages. You know what I'm talking about: whoopee cushion, rubber chicken, pie in the face... It's truly the only day of the year that foolishness is encouraged.

Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment."
- Poor Robin's Almanac, 1790

In honor of April Fools Day, try one or more of the following:
