April Fool’s Pranksters by @JoanReeves #mgtab

AFB_2400px3200p_NYTI’ve always thought April Fool’s Day was made for fun-lovers. I was in awe of April Fool’s Pranksters. I always spent the week leading up to April Fool’s Day trying to think of a stunning prank.

What I dreamed up was rather innocuous like short-sheeting my brother’s bed or yelling, “There’s a tiger in the yard.” (Hey! I was only a child!)

If Only the Internet Had Been Invented

If I’d had Internet and search engines, my pranks would have been awesome. However, it’s never too late to create an epic prank that will live in the memories of family and friends. If you’re like me and need some inspiration, here are some of my personal favorites.

To share with your kids, try Family-Friendly April Fools’ Day Pranks or 31 Awesome April Fools’ Day Pranks Your Kids Will Totally Fall For. You can pull these pranks on your kids or help your kids prank their siblings.

If you want to prank your co-workers and friends, 25+ Hilarious Pranks for April Fool’s Day is superb. I particularly like #2 and #23. If I had a glass door at home, I’d totally do the balloon fake-out on my husband.

So I guess you see how much I still like the first of April. In fact, I liked it so much I wrote a book and called it April Fool Bride.

About April Fool Bride

Oil heiress Madeline Quinn needs a husband by the time she turns twenty-five in order to claim her full inheritance. Mad Maddie, as the tabloids christened her, has learned the hard way that men only see dollar signs when they look at her.

Maddie decides a marriage of convenience is the only answer and turns to the one man she can trust, her housekeeper’s son who always treated her like a little sister when they were kids.

Jake Becker hasn’t seen Maddie since the night she tried to seduce him. Why should he help the woman who changed the course of his life? Simple. Revenge.

Is it a marriage of convenience or something more? Something that sizzles like steam heat between Maddie and Jake that neither can resist!

  1. I can’t remember all that we used to do but I remember one set of pranks that my fellow employees did year after year. It was the 80’s so…. There was a place called Benson’s Wild Animal Farm not far from our company. Every year, someone was left a phone message sheet (again, remember, no voicemail!) that said to call a Mr. Bunny. Seriously. Folks ALWAYS fell for it. And the folks at the Farm were SOOOOOOOOOO nice and always played along with the people that called. Happy to say I was never tagged but my husband? Ayup! Had to hear him arguing with the woman on the phone…until it sunk in that it was April Fool’s Day. So I can appreciate your tiger one!

    • How funny! Did you see the Netflix/John Stamos April Fool prank? Very clever. Did you want to be entered in the giveaway for the journal? If so, just leave your email (written out, not as a hot link).
