The origins of April Fools’ Day go back as far as the Roman Festival of Hilaria. Now, it’s celebrated by normally well-behaved people pulling horrible pranks on their friends, expecting all to be forgiven when they yell, “April Fools!”
But wouldn’t it be great if some things ACTUALLY WERE April Fools’ Jokes?
Here are my top five picks:
Assembly instructions written in what appears to be Klingon.
High-speed Internet service that is slower than the Pony Express.
“Easy Opening” medicine bottles that even the Jaws of Life can’t open.
And the Number One thing I wish actually was an April Fools’ joke:
That orange alien creature living on top of President Trump’s head.
“Bill has been making me laugh for over twenty years!”
“Will tickle your funny bone. Damned clever!”

“Bill knows where the funny is!”
