April Fool’s Day

Don’t forget, today is April Fool’s Day. Hope you have a fun day! We enjoyed reading about some of these pranks listed on FamilyFun.com, especially the bedtime switcheroo prank, which at least one of us will be trying.

One mom waited until all her children were sound asleep and carried them into their siblings rooms.  When they woke up in the morning, she enjoyed seeing their confusion.  Click here to read the full story about this bedtime switcheroo.

Another mom told her children that the principal had called from school to inform her of some rude behavior and enjoyed watching her children’s insist that they hadn’t behaved badly before she said April Fools.

Don’t forget your spouse or co-worker.  A cute prank is to leave a message that Mr. Lyon called and would like a return call by the end of the day.  Put down the number for your local zoo as the return number and see what happens.  You might be as lucky as prankster whose victim was told “I’m sorry, Mr. Lyon is busy at the moment. Mr. Elephant can talk, though!” 

We leave you with this food for thought which was chronicled on the museumofhoaxes.com.  “In 1998: Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a “Left-Handed Whopper” specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, “many others requested their own ‘right handed’ version.””
