April First


"It's snowing", he whispered into my ear. My eyes opened instantly, then I remembered...

The maple syrup's full of ants. A mouse is creeping on the shelf. Is that a spider on your back? I ate the whole pie by myself. The kitchen sink just overflowed. A flash flood washed away the school. I threw your blanket in the trash. I never lie. APRIL FOOL!

Happy April Fool's Day or Hauskaa Aprillinpäivää!

Have you heard about these major April Fools' hoaxes?

My favourite hoax of all time is the San Serif one. It's always better fun to be 'in' on the joke, I find.

That sounds like a very intelligent one! I'm amazed how very well thought out and planned many of these hoaxes are. How come I've never heard of any of them when they were happening?!
