No Foolin'!

I really don't have any good April Fool's jokes this year. I've pretty much used up the, "honey guess what!" in past years. Serving funny foods has been done before. I could have gotten the kids up early and made them get ready for school since today is the first day of their spring break. However, that's only punishing myself!! Speaking of spring break, I'm working with the kiddos here the next six days. Wish me luck!!

In celebration of all things funny, the beautiful weather and the fact that my kids can play outside, let's do something fun! Leave a comment with your funny April Fool's story, a good joke or just something humorous you'd like to share. If we get 25 comments, I'll post a link to download an image box template that can be printed at WHCC. Start thinking! :)

My sister's april fools joke this year was to change her relationship status from married to single. I fell for it for only a couple of seconds. But just to play along I commented that I never liked her husband anyway.

I've never been much of an April Fool's person - not so good at playing jokes of my own. As for jokes played on me, I'm sure lots of people have done this trick. I vividly remember my mom filling the sugar bowl with salt when I was a kid. I was the WORST at putting tons of sugar on my cereal, even though she'd tell me not to. That one bite of horribly, horribly salty cereal is burned into my memory, and my taste buds!

Melissa's story cracked me up and I'm gonna try that today just to get my husband's goat.

I wish those snakes you talked about yesterday were just an April Fool's joke!

I've never been a big prankster, but I've seen a few "I'm pregnant!" announcements on fb. I'd do that to my own husband if I weren't afraid he'd fall to the floor. :)

A few of my friends posted their FB statuses this morning as usual... this time though they read "I'm Engaged!!!" I only fell for it for a few seconds (none of them really are engaged) but it was kinda fun to see my NewsFeed filled with happy news and not complaints about the weather! lol

At a job I switched around lockers on a girl I worked with, she was really confused for a very long time!

A couple years ago my cousin borrowed one of my positive pregnancy test from 1 of my kids & played a trick on everyone that she was pregnant :)
I have never really gotten anyone good, really would love to get my hubby 1 year!!

I texted my daughter, the 16 yr old and told her to call a certain phone number and ask for Mr. Lyon. She kept wanting to know why what for, I told her it's probably about a job just call him and call me back. The number I gave her was the Cincinnati Zoo number. She called me back yelling gawd mom you made me look like an idiot. My other daughter right now has EVERYONE going on FB - she posted she's pregnant, she has a 19 month old and a 7 month old. Everyone is freaking out!!!! I'm playing along, she even got her sister who's out of town right now.

Great idea! Late at night I heard sticky tape being pulled and lots of it. 10 min later Tim comes down and says don't go into Georgia's room tonight. He has made a sticky tape web across her door. Well she didn't fall for it and saw it before walking into it :)

I really enjoyed reading everyone's :) My only one good one was like what Melissa's mom did with the salt. I did that two years ago to my hubby...it got him sooo good. He still talks about it :) I should've thought better about doing something to my kids today. I'll have to think of something good for next year.

Oh, here's the only knock knock joke the kids have been doing lately (well the only one that makes sense anyways). Okay here it is....

Knock knock, who's there? Boo.
Boo who? Well don't cry about it! :p
