It’s the first day of April, which means one thing: beware, because they’re going to pull a lot of pranks.
Yes, the April Fool’s joke is here and it’s time again to question everything around you and ask yourself if it’s really true.
Figuring out what is and isn’t an April Fool’s joke is getting harder and harder, so you may have to cut out your work.
April Fools’ jokes last year included claims that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s secret wedding ceremony ahead of their royal nuptials was performed by a clergyman dressed as Elvis.
The couple had revealed their secret ceremony during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, leading to a second April Fool’s joke that the Queen would set the record straight by speaking to the American media mogul herself.
In 1980, an April Fool’s joke caused a furore after the BBC claimed Big Ben would be broadcast digitally, with the same broadcaster pulling off one of Britain’s most famous pranks 65 years ago.
As early as 1957, its flagship Panaroma program claimed that spaghetti was grown on trees – which was believable given that the Italian staple was not well known to Brits.
In the UK, April Fool’s Day ends at noon. So after that, if you try to trick someone, you’re more likely to become a fool than him.
