I was 19 and traveling. I called home and my dad hadn't heard from me in a while. He asked where I was. I told him I was in jail. There was a long pause on the end of the end of the line and then he responded with a heavy voice...what do you need? I laughed and told him it was all ok.

I'm not a fan. The first year I was with my husband and living overseas, I was missing my family terribly. The post man had come and gone and my husband excitedly shouts to me "Come quick, you've got 2 letters".
I flew down the stairs to find him standing in the kitchen holding a piece of paper in each hand on which he had drawn the letter "A" and the letter "B". Here's your two letters he said.
I was so disappointed I burst into tears and was inconsolable!

My favorite was when I drak all Roger D. Mucci Vodka and replaced it with mineral water and watched him have virgin Martini's last 4/1/
I have been in so much trouble with family and friends for masterfully pulling off April Fool's jokes ... I no longer do them.
I have been known to call off work just before I walk in the door.
haven't done this in years thought. I was younger then.
Had an Agent call looking for a potential buyer named: (Myra Mains), on 4 / 1 many years ago. The phone number was to the local funeral home.....
I grew up with a dad that non stop pranked all of us kids growing up. We could never relax and I hated it. I'm not much of a prankster. I'M BOOOORING!!!
I wrote a blog post about real estate agents being many times more subject to an IRS audit than any other profession. I think I said one in four. I know it was mean but it was April Fools Day.
Nothing to share on the subject. I am looking forward to reading what the community shares. A
love this day
parked and reading
I have no favorites.
I am getting some ideas from reading the answers here - mostly that people don't really like them!
The ones I enjoy are usually public jokes like fake headlines and news reports.
Good morning Sally. There are a couple of people in my office that have pulled off some masterful pranks, I'm a bit wise to them know, but I'm sure they will still make an attempt today.
I don't remember actually ever pulling one on anyone
Sally K. & David L. Hanson - the one every year at MIT....
Looking forward to read about April Fool's prank for tomorrow....
I don't have one, but I can't wait to read others!
Oops! Forgot that tomorrow is April 1 and of course the jokes will happens. Have fun everyone. Thanks for r minder Sally K. & David L. Hanson
I haven't done any and haven't experienced any . . . I'm looking forward to what others will share though Sally K. & David L. Hanson!!
I hate them, personally, but when I was a kid (many, many decades ago), we had a neighbor who was a prankster, and April Fool's Day brought out his worst (or was it his best?).
One year he replaced salt in the sugar cannister, and his wife baked a cake for dinner.
Another year he put marbles in the hubcaps of his friend's brand new Jaguar XKE. The friend was also a neighbor, and you could hear them yelling for blocks when he found out.
I can't remember back that far
I am not now or have ever been a fan...
I don't really care for April fool's jokes.
I have never been good with this type of joke
Nope, don't have any, don't remember any.
I have such a credible demeanor that it is hard to act incredible. I have tried
I am not good at these. My kids, when they were young, used to put a rubber band around the sprayer at the sink. You know what happened as soon as you turned on the water. They got us a couple years in a row!
What? Me short sheet Sandy? Ah...nev, well maybe once in a while and I sure don't need April Fool's Day to pull it off!
I have 5 million dollars I want to buy one house a month min.
ThinkGeek.com has had some great products over the years. Unicorn meat was a classic. Youtube and Google pulled some funny ones over the years too. Youtube had some alternate viewing mode that was a throwback to the 256-bit colour days.
None that I recall, but looking forward to reading the replies you get here Sally.
I don't have any favorite jokes, but I have a cousin who got married on April 1st. I always thought that was odd. No joke there. It lasted til death did part.
