  1. When I was a kid, I told my mom that the phone company was going to be blowing the dust out of the phone lines. I told her she needed to put the phone in a plastic bag and put it out the window until they were done. My brothers and sisters could not believe I convinced her of this until they saw the phone in a plastic bag on the window sill. Best April fool's joke I ever did.

  2. I have a joke that was played on someone at Girls camp, but it wasn't for april fools. Here goes - we put plastic wrap on the toilet...it was terrible and messy and hilarious. :S As an adult, I can't believe I did that to someone!
    Thanks for sharing my blog link. You're a doll :D

  3. We had a gullible co-worker paging "Mr I. P. Freely" to come to her desk for registration. All the other workers AND everyone in the lobby was smiling widely. She was a little slow on the uptake and a supervisor had to tell her it was a joke. She left early that day for something, but when she got home she called the supervisor and said, "Did you know they were having me say "I pee freely?" the supervisor had a hard time not laughing at her on the phone and we all got a really good laugh from it.

  4. About a week before April Fool's Day, my dad started asking my mom if a package had come. He asked every day until April Fool's Day and then told her that it was April Fool's - he had not ordered anything and wasn't expecting a package.

  5. When I was in junior high, I sent an e-mail out to all of my friends explaining that my father's company was transferring him to a different office (we lived in PA, the new office would be in Michigan). I signed off on the e-mail, then hit enter a bunch of times and said "April Fools!" Most of my friends thought it was pretty funny, but one of them got really upset and cried because she thought I was leaving. Oops!

    Thank you for the chance to win a mystery package! :)

  6. Here's a joke: What did the dog say when he sat on the sandpaper?
    -Rough! Rough!

  7. When my boys were small and in cub scouting, one camp-out, every boy tried all April Fool's day to scare me with bugs,worms, snakes, etc.. I got a bucket with a cover and started to 'collect' what they brought me (really let them all go and no I am not scared of them). That night I made a 'dirt cake' (crumbled chocolate cake mixed in chocolate pudding and whipped cream and served in a bucket) but I added gummy and candied bugs,snakes,etc.. and told them it was all the things I had collected from them. - They wouldn't touch that cake for the longest time - until I (and other adults) ate some to prove it was candy. They never pranked me again.

  8. I really don't care for April Fool's Jokes...but my workers thought it would be funny to tell me I had a flat tire on that day...and I had an important meeting to attend...to say I was upset was putting it mildly. Hi Amy...thanks for the mystery giveaway...I am already your follower. Have a great day.

  9. I don't have any good April Fool's jokes that I pulled so I looked up some that were done on a larger scale. Did you know that Burger King once took out a full page add in USA Today on April 1st advertising the launch of their new left handed Whopper? They said it was the same burger but all the condiments had been rotated 180 degrees to better accomodate left handed customers. When they finally came clean, they said that thousands of customers had come in requesting them!

  10. This isn't a very funny one, but when we were first married (2nd one for each of us) my husband told the kids we were going to have a baby. All of our kids were grown. I don't think anyone fell for it. Pretty lame

  11. No April Fools's Jokes but this one's cute:

    A friend hosted a dinner party for family far and wide and everyone was encouraged to bring all their children as well. All during the sit-down dinner one four-year-old girl stared at the uncle sitting across from her. The girl could hardly eat her food for staring. The uncle checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his hair in place but nothing stopped her from staring at him. He tried his best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for him. He finally asked her "Why are you staring at me?" Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior and the table went quiet for her response. The little girl said "I just want to see how you drink like a fish."

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. My son rubber-banded the sprayer for the kitchen sink so that I would get soaked! Grrrr... he was only about 8 at the time. Sign of things to come...

  13. Well, I see my favorite April Fool's stunt is all over the place so a clean/kiddo joke it is

    Have you ever seen a summer cow?
    I don't know what is a summer cow?
    Some are white, some are black, some are red, some are spotted......ya know summer cows.

  15. A joke my mom used to tell us when we were little:

    What did the big casket say to the little casket? Is that you coffin'?

  16. April fools joke... Ok, I was a veterinary technician for 22 years. One year, the weekend before April Fools Day, I went to a flea market and got sunburned pretty bad on my face and hands. That Monday when I went into work, I told the office manager that it was a radiation burn from the xray machine. The boss veterinarian was in on the joke and told me to tell her that he was worse than I was and that every one had to go to the doctor and be checked out. All day long, the office manager was freaking out trying to figure out how to schedule every one time off to go to the doctor. Finally, about 3pm, right before I left for the day, I told her it had all been a joke. She didn't laugh.

  17. This was played on me when I was 16. I was traveling by plane for the first time by myself and had to stay in a hotel at the airport alone. I was a little nervous and I think it showed. The next morning I asked the man at the front desk how to get back to the airport as I was to meet a family friend and get to my destination from there. He looked very serious and said he was sorry. When I asked him why, he said, "I'm sorry - the airport is closed today." I said, "Really?", and looked worried. He told me it was closed again and I started to cry. I think he felt bad for me then, and said - April Fools! Oh, I was so embarrassed, but relieved.

  18. I was married on April Second I tried really hard to get my wife to do it on the first but she was afraid that friends and family would just think it was a joke. So not a joke but cute story.

  19. One year our son rubber banded the sprayer on the sink, so when I turned on the water I ended up getting wet. Of course this was first thing in the morning as I was heading out the door to work. Now it is funny.

  20. One I did long ago, was a strip of packing tape on the bottom of the fridge door. Not mean, but fun. Thanks for having a giveaway.

  21. I am a very gullible person so usually people (ahem, my husband mostly) tells me things that are absolutely amazing and untrue but I end up believing him. At work last year (I was a receptionist) my boss and his cohort put ultrasound gel on the earpiece of the phone, so the first time I answered it my ear got slimed!

    ReplyDelete
  22. We never played them as kids. As a teacher, I came in and had several panicked children tell me they hadn't studied for my math test. Apparently some of their friends had played an April Fools on them and convinced them that I had announced a test the day prior to this. I hadn't. When they found out it was a joke, some were mad but most were generally relieved.

  23. The best is when someone in mour office served up chocolate coated cotton balls! Of course I didn't eart one myself.

  24. I think the extent of our April Fool's pranks were of the "Your shoe's untied" variety. We were a very boring family.

  25. these jokes are hilarious!! now I'm drawing a blank.... well I will tell you a joke my husband has done on someone at work, he's a computer tech for a BIG computer company, anyways a lady who works there had to get her computer re-imagined (getting it wiped out and windows re-installed) he said was doing this over the phone with her and told her to delete everything and to hit enter and enter when it asked if she wanted everything deleted, then reboot and do the same thing and then reboot, well the 3 time she rebooted, he said only to hit enter ONCE, otherwise I would go to the CIA etc and she'd be in trouble... there was a long pause on her end..... then he said he was kidding.

  26. One of my coworkers had a little padlock that she used to padlock another coworkers phone. We all knew about it, so first thing in the morning, we rang his number. He picked up the receiver, but the whole phone came with. We got a good laugh out of it!!

  29. It wasnt really an april fools joke but a Wedding joke on my oldest sister. I had the key to their apt so I could return all her stuff to it when they left for the honeymoon from the reception. My sister and I took all the labels off all the canned goods in the pantry! Unscrewed all the light bulbs and took all the handles off the cabinets. lol.. I am glad we all have such a great sense of humor! She said afterward that the biggest thing was the labels. Then she said "what am I saying? I can't cook and he was just happy to have it not burnt!"

  30. oh just for grins and not for the giveaway..when I was about 10 I superglued a half dollar on our porch and would sit and laugh at the kids that would try so hard to pick it up!

  31. We knew a guy once who put peanut butter on the bottom of his shoe. When he went into his friends house he acted like he had stepped in dog poop, scooped some on his finger and ate it..........eeuuuuuu!!!!!

  32. I am a 4th grade teacher and last year I decided to play a little trick on my students. I told them that their spelling was horrible and I was so frustrated that I picked out a few words from each list from the whole year and we would see who remembered how to spell them. I told them that they should know them immediately and I was going to go super fast, so they better keep up. After 30 words I picked them all up and threw them in the trash a quite clearly announced "April Fools". Of course they all claimed that they "knew it!" LOL

  33. This is a joke my daughter Megan played on my oldest daughter Rachel. Prom was coming up in her senior year of high school, and of course she was anxious to be asked. So Megan convinced me to help her to ask Rachel out to the prom anonymously. She got a bucket full of swedish fish (the candy) and put a little poem in it but left it unsigned but said that the person would come to our house the next day and show himself. Of course Rachel fretted about it all night and all the next day until after school, Megan rang the doorbell, and when Rachel answered it, she yelled, "April Fools!" Rachel's reaction was really funny. The best part of it was when she really did get asked out to Prom a couple of weeks later, the boy did almost the same thing with the Swedish Fish. Rachel thought that it was Megan again! He had to convince her that it was really him and not a joke!

  34. Here's my favorite joke/saying for today: Everyone can Pretend to be Irish on Saint Patrick's Day - We ALL Pretend we're Good at Christmas.

  35. Honestly, no good April Fools jokes here, mostly because I'm not all that creative that way. Sorry.

  36. Hmmmm....trying to think of any jokes my students told me through the years...

  37. No April fools but I do have a joke. How would you recognize Ronald McDonald on a nude beach? By his sesame seed buns. (I hope that would pass with the kiddo's)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Surprises are SUCH fun!!! :-)

    A few years ago, I was in the kitchen cooking breakfast for my hubby, when I remembered that it was the first of April, and my mind started turning.. When he walked in the room, I was ready.. I casually glanced out the window, and then in a very startled voice, said, "Oh my gosh!! There is an alligator out there!!!" He ran over to the window and said "WHAT!? WHERE!?" It was hilarious-- especially considering the fact that we live a long way from the nearest body of water-- no chance that we would EVER see an alligator in our yard! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  39. When I was young, my dad called the neighbors across the street on April Fool's Day to say there was a cow in their front yard. (We lived in town.) Of course the neighbors knew my dad was joking, did not believe it... We were watching carefully for them to look out the window, for there really WAS a cow in their yard,looking in the window at them!

  40. A great joke that was played on me was a telephone number to call back a Mr, Lyon. The number rang through to the LA Zoo!!!!

  41. My son's favorite knock-knock joke:
    Knock-knock.
    Who's there?
    Dwayne.
    Dwayne who?
    Dwayne the bathtub I'm du-wow-ning.

    Okay, the Ronald McDonald joke above is funnier, but that's the best I've got. LOL

  42. My hubby is military and he used to send all the new guys to Supply to get a left handed screwdriver or a piece of flightline. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. My only April Fool's joke is now obsolete because of cordless phones...but back it the day when I worked in an office we thought it was funny to tape down the little buttons on the phone that rested under the receiver--the ones that were released when the receiver was lifted up so that the phone would stop ringing and the call would be connected. We would tape those doohickeys down and when someone would answer the phone it would keep on ringing, all the while the person holding the receiver would be saying, "Hello...hello.." with increasing frustration.

  44. My family isn't really big on April's Fool. The only thing I can really remember is my older sister putting vasaline on all the door knobs of the house. We were rubbing it off our hands, even days later. But the knobs looked all shiny and new.

  46. I have to say that the only thing I can associate with April Fool's Day is that my husband and I picked that date on purpose as our wedding day! We were (and still are) Fools in love. :D

  47. I remember one time this radio DJ told everybody to cover there phone jacks with plastic because they were being worked on. If you didn't cover up your phone jacks a white powder would come in through the phone jacks.

  48. Not much of a joke but my Dad and Mom were married on April 1st. Dad used to say " I've been fooling her ever since"!

  49. I was attending a board of directors meeting and the CEO was giving introductions. He had two directors stand up, gave short personal descriptions and then said that the best thing about them was that they were sisters. He took in most of us until one of them said she wouldn't mind being a sister but they weren't related. It was my first introduction to the crafty trickster our CEO turned out to be.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Not really a trick so much as something that my little boy introduced to his friends at school and with which they had so much fun: in France, April 1st is "poisson d'avril" (April fish,) and children tack little paper fish onto each other's backs. Grown-ups play too, of course, and sometimes it can get quite elaborate: my friend walked out to his swimming pool one April 1st to find fish swimming in it! lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. I am not big on practical jokes, but my mom, who is now in her 80's, tries something every year. This year she asked me what was all over my nose. Of course there was nothing. Those kinds of jokes are not too bad. LOL! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  52. A blonde had called into 911. She was asked how to get to her place of residence. Her reply was DAH - THE BIG RED FIRETRUCK!.

    Sorry just had to give you this joke. Just really cute and clever answer.

    I have had a lot of fun entering all of the giveaways listed on the Blog Hop Party and have come across new ones. So, I believe that all of you will have new followers, which is a good thing.

  53. Yesterday, we were having a garage sale at our home. My husband poked his hand out the gate and wiggled a live snake at me that he had just found by the garden. He didn't know we had many people there at the time and he scared one of the shoppers. Later on, he chopped the head off but put the body in the garbage can. (He was going to try to scare me later.) Without thinking, as we were cleaning things up, he lifted the lid and scared himself as the snake body was laying across the top. So, all in all, his pranks backfired, not once but twice! Thank you for the chance to win.

  54. I put a rubber band on the sink squirter (you know, that things at the sink that we rarely use to rinse the dishes?) Well, when my husband turned on the water to wash his hands it squirted him in the belly -- Funny!

  65. The year my DGD#2 was in 8th grade, she and I played a trick on her English teacher, my best friend, and the whole 8th grade class. She told them that she was having to move to Virginia to live with her dad and was leaving that weekend. We spent the whole day sad faced and then right before last bell she was called to the office. We got on the intercom and said "April Fool!" now I realize that while hilarious to us, it was mean to others. We didn't think anyone would believe it since it was known that where DGD#2 went I went and Other way round too.

  66. My late father would catch me every time he told this joke. When a ball game would come on TV he would say, "I know what the score will be before this game starts." I would bite and say something, usually flippant. Then he would say, "It's zero to zero."
    Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

  67. I will preface this by saying I can be pretty gullible! I went to college in Chicago, right on the shores of Lake Michigan. The school didn't have a football team, but the guy I was dating convinced me that they were getting a football team and building a stadium right out in the middle of the lake! I believed him for at least a few weeks.

  69. I recently told my sister that I was going to park next to her at a restaurant, but the gates to the lot were closed, so I had to park elsewhere. She took a second then raced off to rescue her car. It was a joke and we enjoyed the laughter....until she returned from the lot!

  80. My Grandfathers favorite cereal when I was a kid was shredded wheat and he always put a ton of sugar on it. One year my youngest uncle switched out the sugar with salt. April Fools for grandpa.

  81. When my son was about 10...he tied a realistic looking BIG plastic spider to a long string and daggled it down into our family room. He got what he wanted....a reaction from me....as I am scared of spiders! I think the whole neighborhood heard my scream!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm no practical jokester, but my dad is. He once tricked my brother into thinking he had won the lottery because together they went out and bought a bunch of tickets for a big drawing, then early on the morning after, he went out and bought another ticket with the winning numbers and slipped it in with the rest of them. When we got up, he casually tossed us the paper and tickets and told us to check to see if we'd won. I read the numbers and my brother checked the tickets, getting more and more excited at the one. He never even thought to look at the dates and when I pointed out the ink was different than the others he screamed, "who cares about the ink? we won!" He had no reason to be dubious since he had been there the day before to buy the tickets with Dad. I'm sure it's an overused joke nowadays but some twenty years ago it was pretty darn funny.

  83. Sshh... don't tell my lab, but I'm planning on "yarn bombing" it for April Fools this year! The fun part will be seeing the reactions of certain OCD-ish labmates when they see it all... ;-)

  84. One April Fool's Day my Dad was handing out cigars and telling everyone his wife had just had twins. Everyone thought he was joking but believe it or not I have sisters who are twins and they were really born on April 1st. There were no other twins in the whole family so that is why no one believed him. We always get a kick out of that story. They will be 70 on this April 1st. Thanks.

  85. I am not an April Fools person, so I will share the joke my son blurted out not long ago. We had a new fast food place open up nearby, and as we drove by soon after he said: Who is Burger King's wife? Dairy Queen! Kind of a groaner but kind of cute too. If I win, it will be fun to see the surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  86. My daughter is our prankster! Every year she has more elaborate and different things to pull on us. One year she sneaked her brother's toothbrush and put it in water in the freezer, and it became an ice cube. She put it back down in the bathroom cabinet just before he was to use it! And he was late for work anyways...so there he is holding it over running hot water so he could quickly brush his teeth before leaving.

    Another trick on me...when I opened my bedroom door on April Fool's morning, right there in the hallway on the carpet was about two dozen cups and glasses half full of water spaced just right in rows and rows, and I couldn't get out of my room w/o moving them all or water would go everywhere.

    Once she also put pieces of bubble wrap under the potty seat (just around the rim...not like the Saran Wrap joke)...so when the next person sat down all the popping began. I thought I had cracked the potty seat! LOL!

    I have no clue what she has planned for this year....but I'll be out of town. I'll miss all the fun!

  89. I once took the batteries out of the TV remote control. You should have seen my hubby trying to make it work without getting up LOL. Upside down, sideways...snicker. After about 5 minutes he turns to me and said I think the batteries are dead. I lost it and laughed so hard there tears running down my face...too funny.

    Here's a blond joke: Two blonds were walking along in the woods and came to a set of tracks. One says to the other one "I'm going to follow the tracks". The other one says "OK, lets". They were run over by the train....Yep it's a lame joke unless you visualize it.

    My dad's joke: Wonder how many are dead in there? (pointing to a graveyard). Answer: Everyone of them.

  91. when I was a kid, I vasoline'd the doorknobs and stretched saran wrap tightly over the toilet bowl (mom was NOT pleased). As and adult, I called my grandma every year to tell her I was pregnant. Since I have 6 children, she usually forgot what day it was and believed me, lol

  92. I am very guilty of breaking into a cabin, stealing a couple pairs of underwear from the occupants, and stringing them up on the flagpole in the middle of camp. ;)

    Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  93. My oldest son came home from school when he was about 8 and told me he got a D on this big spelling test we had spent a lot of time studying for. Mind you he was and still is as honest as the day is long, and a total brain. As I was getting worked up trying to figure how he did so poorly, he pulls the test from behind his back. It has a be A+ on it and he is grinning from ear to ear as he says "April Fools". I totally fell for it, lol.

  95. Thanks for your giveaway. My April Fools joke was when my husband was ready to go out the door for work and I told him it was snowing, he turned around and got his thicker coat and preceded out the door. I went to tell him April Fools, but in fact it was snowing. That one backfired on me. Every time I talked with him that day he was still laughing. Who ever heard of snow in April, we had it once and haven't had it on April 1st since.

  96. Thank you for participating in the blog hop, and for requesting April fool jokes. It's fun to read them on this side of the blog too. First is a joke (from my husband, so it's ok if you don't laugh)...Why does a chicken coup only have 2 doors? ...because if it had 4, it would be a chicken sedan. I know, cornball right? so this might be right up your alley. For April Fools, take your co-workers pop-up tissue box...the tall ones, not the school size flatter ones, and cut the bottom out. Keeping the tissue right where it is, fill the box with marbles and set it back down on the desk. The next morning, ask your coworker for a tissue. They pick up the box and marbles fall out everywhere. I had this done to me....it was a riot. Just a hint to really fluff up that first tissue again, after filling the box.

  97. Sign in a drugstore: NO DOGS EXCEPT SEEING EYE DOGS ALLOWED. Now, tell, me, who do you think will read that who really needs to read it? The dog? The blind man? Life is stranger than fiction.

  98. Last year on April Fools Day I made my kids cinnamon-sugar toast for breakfast. But instead of sugar I used salt on them. My son loved it - the joke not the toast. :)
