  1. I haven't played an April Fool's joke (because I can't keep a straight face!), but I heard about a mother who made her kids think they woke up late in the morning so they had to frantically rush around to get ready for school, only to find out they were actually early.

    1. That sounds like a great joke! My kids are out of school tomorrow, so maybe I could trick them and make them forget they're not. :)

  8. I haven't, but my uncle played one on my mom when he called her to say his ex-wife had him thrown in jail and he needed her to bail him out. When he said April Fool's after he got her all panicked, my sisters and I were shocked to hear her call him a bad word before she hung up on him. :D

  53. I can't think of any great ones, but at my previous job I was a retail manager and I almost always had to close. We had this really ugly cat that was leftover from Halloween, and I used to love leaving it in the safe at night to scare the opening manager. I would also leave fake rats in the registers too.
