What's your best April Fool's Gags over the years?
Don't be shy...spit 'em out.
My younger years April Fool's gags were pretty simple. Blowing egg out of shell and putting empty egg shells in chairs to make people sit on them and things like that.
My best one, though, was played on my mother back in the early 90s. Maybe 90 or 91. I was just a few years out of high school (about 20 or 21) and my mom was already bugging me about when I thought I'd settle down and get married. She was always nagging me about it...telling me she wanted grandkids. I didn't even have a freakin' girlfriend at the time.
Finally one day I thought of a gag that may stop her with that crap. I called her up on April 1 at work. I told her that Rachel and I were getting married. Rachel was a girl I was friends (and only friends) with in high school. We still got together for a drink or a movie now and then. I knew my mom didn't know her well enough that she just may fall for it.
I call her up...tell her to sit down. I tell her that Rachel and I were getting married. I made up a story about how I proposed. I really let it sink in...for like 10 minutes. Let her get to the point where she was making plans about things she might do for the wedding, etc.....
Once she was really into it..making plans and bought in HOOK, LINE AND SINKER, I yell APRIL FOOLS MOM!!!
I didn't have the guts to go home before she was in bed for almost a week.
