I look at April Fool's Day the same way I look at Valentine's Day. Completely useless.
Just like I don't want overpriced flowers on the same day as every other woman in America, I find practical jokes on April first to be ho-hum. It in no fun at all to prank someone on a day that they are expecting to be pranked. I prefer to spread the love throughout the year. And while it is lots of fun to call your nephew's stepmom from a school phone and inquire about his non-existant truancy, it is much more fun to do it when she won't stop and say "hey wait a minute".
And Rick Rolling is so much more adorable when you are pretending to direct someone to an awesome news story in July. And if you need ammunition....try this literal version of the Rick Roll. Please put down any drinks before watching as Fictionistas cannot be held responsible for monitor damage. Seriously. I am so not joking. You will laugh.
