No need to explain this. I tried to find some history but there are widely varying ideas about how and when this day was first recognized. Any great stories you wish to share about pranks you played or that were played on you for April Fool's Day.

It is also National Cents Day. Interesting history there. The first pennies were minted by a private company.

Finally, it's National Sourdough Bread Day. I LOVE good sourdough bread. Not sure of any health benefits but it does tast good.

    Is Nolan going to announce he's entering the transfer portal today?

    when I was 12 or 13 I decided to play an April's Fools prank on my parents. The kitchen sink had one of those sprayers that was separate from the faucet and it was all black. So I got a black rubber band and put it on so that the button was pressed. Then whoever turned the sink on in the morning would get sprayed with water.

    Well, I put the rubber band on before bed. It dripped water all night. Woke up to a very wet kitchen floor, water in the sink cabinet, and me with a mess to clean while they laughed at me

    It should be April ''FOOLS' Day. Fools deserve one day a year where they are celebrated.

    CTDawg. Nolan sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber, I believe somebody mistook it for a transfer portal, no worries.

    My former boss loved April Fool's Day and always got us one way or the other. One year we decided to pay him back while he was at lunch so we got some shipping tape and taped everything down in his office. Chair, phone, mouse, mouse pad, keyboard, coffee cup, telephone. Anything that could safely be taped was taped. It didn't stop him from pranking us each year though.

    Thank the Lord. He should be careful of falling into the transfer portal though, it’s very difficult to come back from that
