April Fool’s Day marks the one time of year where any and all trickery is considered fair game. While some go all out for this holiday in attempts to pull off the greatest pranks of all time, others walk on egg shells, turning on faucets slowly and smelling their toothpastes before using. Either way, prankster or not, we are all forced to play along and make the best of our holiday by laughing at ourselves and those that we know who have been fooled too. If you do decide to indulge in a trick or too, however, here are few ideas that are sure to fool your family, friends, and coworkers today
