To think April fools day is a bag of shite?

It involves two things:

Tragically unfunny pretendy news stories.

Humiliating people at work or school.

Both are bollox.

It does seem a bit daft and dated.

Some of the tricks/jokes are funny. Some are not.

DH told me (as soon as I got up at 8am) that Mick Jagger was dead! (He has been ill.)

I was like 'noooooooooooooooooo!' sad

'Ha ha April Fools!' he said.

Very funny.

Not!!! hmm

For me it involves none of these things as I completely ignore it, as does everyone I know. I only really read the bbc news website and occasionally one of the broadsheets. Do they put ‘joke’ articles in The Times? I bloody hope not.

Yanbu. It does sound like a load of bollocks.

Yabu on the first one, frankly I like that someone makes the effort just to give us a smile.

Yanbu on the2nd point.

I liked a few today. Doppycthr dinisaur getting a cone on his head made me chuckle, ball dogs at the us open...some though arsjust ridiculous. A friend pretended he’d broken a limb, how is that funny?

I am in agreement with you. I think the whole thing is pointless.

That was mean of him, getting your hopes up like that.

Funny one about a nuclear sub in cleethorpes and the chance they could ne nased there, that was a good one actually.
The subs name spelt april fools and half the facts were daft but still some people fell for it

YANBU. I hate it and think it can be really cruel.

Akkk...

It left out the image!

April Fool's is canceled this year as no made up prank could match the unbelievable shit happening in the real world right now.

I'm autistic and I often struggle to understand when people are pulling my leg so I find April Fool's Day incredibly stressful, I'm on edge constantly! I hate it.
