And April Fool's Day is one of the worst of them all. We do not need a holiday to pull pranks on other people. If you can't figure out how to pull a socially acceptable prank on someone any day of the year, you really shouldn't be pulling pranks. Because you have a crippling lack of sense of humor. Because you've lost your innocence. Because you are Ashton Kutcher.
So refuse to participate in any April Fool's Day pranks. Yes, you read that correctly. I am calling for a boycott of April Fool's Day. Unless you happen to have a sweet opportunity. But don't set up anything special because of the day. Postpone it until April 4. Or June 22. Or September 16. Whenever. Plus, postponing your sweet (or probably lame) prank will actually help it be successful. Because no one trusts anyone on April 1. As well they shouldn't. But by July 9, everyone will be trusting again. So you are good to go. Plus, your prank will stand alone. Everyone is pranking on April Fool's Day, nobody is pranking on August 17. It's like playing in a football game on a Tuesday or getting all wasted on Sunday night. Most people don't do it, so it will be that much more memorable AND everyone will be watching. Plus, you are boycotting April Fool's Day, so you can't pull your prank on April 1 anyway, remember?
