Today is April 1st, also known as April Fool’s Day. It’s the one day a year people who are not particularly all that funny attempt to crack wise by making something up that isn’t true and passing it off as fact. For instance, telling someone they have full-blown AIDS when they don’t. It’s dumb, it’s annoying, and it’s never amusing.
Like a lot of things, the Internet has made the April Fool’s Day a lot worse. Unfunny people take to the Internet to post their unfunny crap.
I just don’t get it. How is the act of you telling me something that is not true, and me believing it because I trust you, make me a fool?
