For sure I am not a fan of practical jokes. Too often the poor victim is just that, a victim and not really in on what’s so funny and made to feel like a moron.

And when we realize it isn’t we can laugh because the joker let us in just enough that we don’t feel like complete idiots. That’s the art of a good April Fool’s Prank.

Just for fun, because we always deserve something just for fun, here’s an example from the gallery of famous Google April Fools Jokes of past years.
