Book Description

The origins of April Fool's Day, classic and modern hoaxes and even pranks that went horribly wrong...DEATHLY WRONG.

April Fools day is celebrated on 1 April although it is not a national holiday. Throughout the Western world it is celebrated by tricking people into believing something totally ridiculous. You might send someone out to look for a nonexistent item, a fool’s errand, or perhaps play a simple prank or practical joke. In any event the “fool” is eventually let off the hook by the prankster saying “April Fools”...

This is a rather entertaining read, that features a wealth of ideas for any jokers out there. Quite frankly, I'm amazed that anyone was dumb enough to fall for some of these, but you should never underestimate the sheer stupidity of man. You'd have to get out of bed pretty damned early to catch me out, however, following my escapades as a student. Things got highly competitive in our house and some of the jokes got a little extreme. Still, I had the last laugh in our final year together- when I secretly chloroformed my unsuspecting housemates, causing them to oversleep! One of them even got fired from his job, for arriving there in a dopey haze- some five hours late! Anyway, if you're still a novice at this game, you'll find plenty of entertainingly malicious ideas here.

PS. Everyone's been trying to convince me that all of the shops are "closed" today, on a Monday. Yeah, sure they are! What kind of silly William do people take me for? Do they think I can't read the date or something? I know they've had some stupid holidays recently (for no better reasons than the fact that Prince Billy needed the whole country to know that he's officially having sex, and because it became a round number of years since the queen got given a hat). However, that doesn't mean that they'll now be flinging Michael Mouse bank holidays around at the likes of April fools day, Valentine's day or May day etc. Anyway, never mind those silly amateurish pranksters. I'm just off to the doctor's surgery to arrange an appointment, after which I'll be going to the post office to send a parcel and heading down the bank to deposit some cheques. Later this evening you'll find me doing my shopping in the twenty four hour Tesco. Nobody's going to be making me look like a proper daft idiot today!

PS. I was only joking, by the way. This book's pathetically and short and contains a complete load of amateurish crap!

There were some facts I never knew. Also I was reminded of Taco Bell buying the Liberty Bell. I loved MArk Twain 's quote at the end "...April Fools Day reminds us what we are the other 364 days of the year".
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting History, No Helpful Pranking Instructions 16 April 2013

All the history about April Fool's Day you ever wanted to know and then some. I was hoping for some instructions on simple pranks I could pull, but alas, only stories about pranks some had pulled (and the consequences).
