Friday Wisdom – April Fools’ Day

In honor of April 1:

Companies should launch new products on April first, that way if the product fails they can say, “April Fool!”

Thanksgiving vs April 1: One is thankful the other prankful.

Summer said to spring, “I’m going to fall!”

Everyone is exhausted on April 1 because they’ve just had a 31-day March.

The worst day to propose on is April First.

Eggs love April Fools’ Day. Yes, the love practical yokes.

What if April Fools’ Day is actually April 2 and we’ve all been fooled into thinking it’s the first.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice – and how would I know?

The first of April is the day we remember what we are the other 364 days of the year. — Mark Twain

There are two types of April Fools’ Day pranks: the funny ones, and the ones played on you. — Melanie White.

It’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought of as a fool rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt.

The wise don’t need advice. Fools won’t take it. — Ben Franklin

  5. I used to always try to fool my kids on April Fools Day. Eventually, they got on to me. I get a kick out of a lot of Will Rogers quotes – this one seems appropriate today: “A fool and his money are soon elected.”

    I love the funny ones, and the ones played on you. I can’t do pranks; I start laughing too soon. Can you do pranks, Andrew?
