April Fools day sucks.
There I said it. Call me a humorless Eeyore all you want. You know it’s true.
The problem is, no one believes your joke. No one thinks the New Jersey Devils are changing their name to the Angels. No one believes Mark Hamill is revealing Star Wars Episode 8 spoilers (can you imagine the unholy army of lawyers Disney would unleash on him?) and your “we’re pregnant” post is not fooling anyone and pretty cruel for some people who can’t have kids.
It’s time to fix this annual comedy dumpster fire and there are exactly two ways to do it
1. Abolish April Fools completely. Posting something inaccurate means you have to delete your Facebook account. Or….
2.Take it to the next level. Still do the April fools jokes AND every company, and person has to save a years worth of bad news. Of press releases. Of merger announcements. Of sad break up posts, and RELEASE THEM ALL ON APRIL 1ST!!!!!!!
Imagine it! The chaos! The mayhem! If something sounds unlikely now on April 1st it’s because it is, but if you had no idea what was fake or real?!?! It would take WEEKS to sort it all out!!!! If you saw something about the Jets changing their name to the Polar Bears on April 1st you would freak the hell out!
It would be glorious. 1 day of complete and utter anarchy! Like that movie the Purge but only on Facebook.
Sadly it will never happen. But don’t worry, that post you made about moving to Antarctica was hilarious.
