1 As I got older, I became more irritated with April Fool's jokes. They just don't have the same appeal as when I was a kid anymore. -- Submitted By: () on November 8, 2011, 10:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 BigAl, I feel your pain. The Terrance & Philip travesty nearly made me reach for my favorite pitchfork, and the memory still hurts 13 years later; to this day I hang black crepe all over my house on April 1. Plus the number of truly clever April Fool's Day gags I've been exposed to over the years are outnumbered about a hundred to one by the creations of people who really should have just spent the day in bed. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 6:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I stopped caring about April Fools' Day long ago - I guess the boning moment for me was when Comedy Central aired a Terrance & Philip special for South Park instead of airing the much-hyped episode where they unveil Cartman's dad. Now...pulling basic pranks just doesn't have that zing anymore. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Jokes aren't cool if people wind up getting hurt or humiliated. Jokes are cool if they have everyone laughing. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 3, 2010, 8:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 What most of you said. Yeah, the occasional gag is good, but when it something like exploding said, and causes undue panic, or is a flat out plain annoyance, then yeah, it stupid... just stop it! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 2, 2010, 3:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I don't mind jokes. I think we all need to relax at least once in a while and have a little fun. I think pulling pranks can be fun as long as the time is right, they're in good taste and you let the person know you're joking within a reasonable amount of time. I however, accept that those three things are arbitrary. April fools gags that have people in a panic are in my opinion, cruel. This especially applies when they don't admit it's a gag for several hours or more. Sometimes when something on a website that I see on April 1st makes me do a double take, I might look at the update date (or the date itself). If it's April 1st, I tend to suspect an April fools gag. That's what brings me to another type of April Fools gag I dislike. When they'll say (for example) that they updated or added something on March 31st. It's annoying hearing/seeing April Fools for things supposedly updated March 31st because it feels like a cheap trick! It gets annoying when websites mess up their entire front page on April 1st with joke material. It might seem funny at first but unless they have a way to access the normal site once you're done laughing (or if it doesn't amuse you at all), the joke can get old fast. In short, I don't mind simple, harmless jokes that they admit are jokes almost right away. What I do mind is ones that aren't so obvious that have have people cursing or feeling horribly let down (in the case of a joke download, promise etc) once they find out it's a joke. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 1, 2010, 11:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Maybe April Fools' Day is why I'm not so quick to trust people. Some people take it WAY too far. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on August 1, 2009, 7:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 It's gotten so bad I don't even bother leaving the house on this day anymore, lest I be lied to approximately a thousand times in the guise of a "joke". -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 16, 2009, 6:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Joe, I think the most likely reason for its origins has to do with the calendar switch in 1563, France in which the OLD New Year's got celebrated on the NEW April 1st. Anyway, the illiterate peasantry hadn't heard of the edict so they were STILL celebrating the OLD New Year with all kinds of merrymaking and carryings on. This prompted the city folks and aristocrats to become very derisive of them and laugh "Look at all those APRIL FOOLS!". Anyway, it seems even after the misunderstanding was cleared up, everyone liked the idea of a day of pranks and mischief so the day stuck and spread to other countries! Maybe this likely French-originated celebration is not the most edifying holiday but surely is less destructive than Britain's Guy Fawke's Day which involves burning a straw man in front of a crowd! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 8, 2009, 2:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 The most stupid holiday ever. Who thought this silly idea up anyway. Play a trick, then say April Fool. If you do this then YOU are the April fool. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on June 6, 2009, 6:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
