April Fools: A Classic Joke Can Be Entertaining

One of the greatest things about being in a relationship is that there is powers in numbers. I love April Fool’s Day and last year my boyfriend at the time and I thought it would be fun to leverage the seriousness of Facebook to play a prank. Frankly, we weren’t that creative. We were like, “Hey! Why don’t we change our relationship status on Facebook to say we are engaged!” So we did. And insanity ensued.


Within seconds my notifications went crazy. People who I went to nursery school with and old college friends were congratulated me. People began calling up my parents to congratulate them. My texts were going off the hook. This excitement made us want to take the joke a step further. I googled “Pale hand with engagement ring” and changed my Facebook profile picture to go in for the kill.


This went on all day. My closest friends were smart enough to question this. Instead of texts that said “CONGRAAAATTTTSSS” they were more along the lines of “Hardy har har.” But some texts were pretty hysterical. Here are my favorites:

The moral of the story is, people are suckers. Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy April Fools Day. People are gullible and it’s always fun to laugh.

What was the best April Fool’s Day prank you ever pulled?
