April Fools is drawing near. And since it’s still March to date, this article will not prank you to doing non-sense tricks to ruin your prospects but give you nerve-racking ideas for the month to come!
While everyone is as cold as a cucumber in spending most of the year on work, academics, parenthood and other serious stuff, there’s a day in April that gives a green light to high jinks and practical jokes.
Though the roots of this gut-busting trend are cloudy, some theories tried to explain its beginning. The most popular of them happened on April 1, 1689, where a mass of Londoners was tricked into coming to see ‘the lions washed’ at the Tower Ditch.
It is believed to be the first recorded instance of a popular April Fool’s Day prank since no one saw any lion washing ceremony.
Now, if you’re a fan of the prank season, please know that so do a lot more people around you. You surely don’t want to be cliche and don’t want the joke bouncing back to you on this battle of wit and gags.
With that said, here is a list of offbeat April Fools pranks that’ll make you this year’s reputable rascal.
