Why April Fool’s Day Sucks

It doesn’t suck in a big way. But it sucks in a small way for the following reasons:
1. The people who “get it” and want the world to know about it. Hey, everyone, look at this gag that I found. And I recognised that it was a gag straight away, because I’m clever. You have to get up earlier than that in the morning to catch me! Haha!
2. Trustworthy sources suddenly aren’t so trustworthy. For an entire morning, you have to shut yourself off from the entire universe, because there’s a very real danger that someone will concoct an incredibly subtle gag. Too subtle, in fact, to be detectable. And though their intentions are good, the ensuing bedlam is something that we’re all better off without.
Don’t worry, I’m not talking about anything in particular. Just being a mard.
UPDATE: Oh, and I forgot to add – because the US are a few hours behind us, it is still morning there. So the madness isn’t going to be stopping before the end of the day. Sigh.

  1. Are you only talking about online April Fool Gags, or all of them?
    Because short-sheeting still remains incredibly funny- on any day!

  2. Are you sure?

    I’ve been getting comfortable in here.
