The world was given a slight reprieve from the unbearable antics of April Fools’ Day this year given the festivities fell on a Saturday. But Reddit also did its part to make April 1 a little more bearable with a collaborative art project that saw thousands of users painstakingly creating pixel art, one tile at a time,…
Alright, Lotus. Did you really think you could get away with this? Not the joke, obviously—any journalist knows a press release embargoed for April 1 is meant for trickery. But did you really think you could get away with releasing photos of cats in cute race helmets for April Fools’ Day and not start selling them?
Love it or hate it, April Fools’ Day is pretty tame in the 21st century. Krispy Kreme tells you it’s changing its name to Krispy Cream or something and you’re supposed to be “tricked.” Then everybody rolls their eyes and goes on with their lives. But back in the 19th century, April Fools’ Day was hardcore.
Friends, we’ve finally made it: The hellishly wearisome event that is April Fool’s Day is basically at its end.

April Fool’s Day was one of the first slasher movies I ever saw, circa the VHS era, and it remains one of my favorites in the genre.

Each April first, Think Geek taunts us with their fake April Fool's Day products. While nothing will ever top the Tauntaun sleeping bag, this year's imaginary product list includes a big-mouthed Mon Calamari, an inflatable captain's chair, and the chance to smell like Daenerys Targaryen.
You're probably not going to fool most adults into thinking these ceramic coffee mugs have actually sunk into a table. But kids are easy targets, and this sight gag is sure to blow their minds. Even if it's not April 1st.
Though pranking someone with fake toilet paper is infinitely more cruel, creating this fast action, rapid dispensing toilet paper will win you a more advanced level of laughter. Watch, when a person reaches for the toilet paper, the roll starts spitting out TP like crazy.
Have you ever been without toilet paper? It's a horrible sinking feeling. Disgusting scenarios run through your head: should I squabble to safety, should I use what's in the trash, maybe my underwear? It's scary! Which is is why I'm going to pull this prank come April Fools.
The internets are chockablock with poor attempts at suck-you-in hilarity today — but here are the best we've found
You know, for my mythical iPhone. At an April Fool's Day price of only £90 ($135), the converter makes your inserted iPhone magnify to the size of an iPad. A far better investment, if you ask me. [IWantOneOfThose.com]
