No this thread isn't a joke, I genuinely really dislike and dread every April 1st. And I know I'm not the only one.

What's your least favorite part of April Fool's Day?

    Replace influencers with corporations, and that's mine.

    Thinkgeek was good because they would actually make one of their joke products for real, but otherwise April fools is boring and annoying.

    I hate it. There’s such a thin line between funny and mean and most people do not understand this at all.

    I still believe in the spirit of April Fool's Day but it's been ages since I've seen a good prank.

    This morning my wife drew little rabbit paws on the toilet seat, put some pink food color and glitter in the toilet and left some jelly beans on the counter so it looked like the Easter Bunny peed in our toilet and left them poop candy.

    It's difficult to balance being cute/funny and being a dick, and it's much easier to end up being a dick without intending to so I am on team "let's just stop already"

    there's enough dickishness already in the world

    Maybe I can go back to enjoying April Fool's when days have meaning again and we're not in an endless procession of weeks and months of lockdown which bleed into one another.

    As it is, I'll probably "fall" for some fake announcement because I'll forget that it's the joke day. Then I'll continue falling for similar announcements because people leave up the joke posts after April Fool's has passed.

    I always hated when magazines did that. EGM I get your magazine in March not on April 1st so your jokes don't really work.

    My school has a fun one today. Our mascot has always been a generic bear but from today on we will be the Panda Bears, a teacher did a logo mock up and photo-shopped it onto blank shirts several of us volunteers were wearing for the "Press Release"

    I am currently pushing for a one off run of Panda logo shirts to be actually made to commemorate the event.

    Also I have convinced our IT person that it is totally real and not fake.

    Here’s an accidental one

    Grabbed a pepper for my morning burrito and thought it was the usual jalapeño

    I’m breathing fire turns out it was a very juicy serrano

    I played myself

    Deliciously though

    A common French idiom is to call someone gullible a fish (because fish bite on baited hooks, they're gullible). At some point the French version of April Fool's became April Fish through this association (apparently references date back to the 16th century) and it spread from there.

    ThinkGeek did used to be the best at April Fool's day.

    My expensive doll collecting hobby has a contender with Smart Doll, though. Half the time Danny Choo actually does make the April Fool's day product, particularly if it gets attention.

    I think this year's entry of a bike-shaped ITX computer case could be made. As a general rule I'm against super small unique cases since as soon as you need to upgrade you have to buy a whole new PC. But I'd love to have this one.
