Are you wondering what to do to that naive person you know on this absurd holiday?

What about a bucket-of-water-balanced-on-a-door trick? Faking a heart attack in public? There’s always the did you hear the news option: calling friends and family to tell them you’re imprisoned in another continent, that you just got married to a martian, or you won the Mega Million Jackpot.

in the Internet age, when an April Fools joke can go viral in an instant, it makes perfect sense that attorneys are stepping in to help folks determine the difference between a brilliant prank and an outright criminal act, which deserves a prison sentence.

As we increase our hyper-connectedness, it’s anyone’s guess what some will do this year for this informal but unpredictable holiday. Ultra high-tech tomfoolery is bound to be the latest in a long line of April 1 hijinks. Since martians landing in New Jersey.

A word to the wise for merry pranksters. Please make sure and avoid making many serious mistakes today, especially one that will get you fired or thrown behind bars, and not the bars many like to visit for a drink or two.

After all, the last thing you want to hear when you’re using your one phone call from a jail is “Very funny” — followed by dial tone... APRIL FOOLS
