It's April Fools Day!

We want to know, what's the best prank you've pulled or had pulled on you?

Not only is today Palm Sunday, but it is also April Fools' Day. 

April Fools' Day is believed to have originated in medieval days after the first day of the year was switched from April 1st to January 1st. Those who celebrated in January played pranks on those who still believed the new year began in April.

So we want to know what's the best prank (or worst prank, depending on if you were on the receiving side) you ever pulled on April Fools' Day? Tell us about it in the comment section below.

I don't typically pull pranks, but one of my former co-workers was convinced that I was going to pull a trick on him, so I started playing a psychological game with him. I was working at a TV station. My anchor came in with his coffee and asked if I had any Splenda. So I gave him some perfectly fine packets of the sugar substitute. But during the show, he was waiting for a whoopie cushion on his chair or a rubber chicken to fly across the set. I told him that wasn't going to happen, but he didn't believe me. So finally I hinted that I may or may not have given him powdered laxatives instead of Splenda for his coffee. He was very nervous for the remainder of the show, shifting in his chair A LOT! When the show was over, he went off, nervously, to do a story at the state capitol. I asked him if the building was open so he could use the restroom if he needed to. Then I told him to wait a minute, went in the ladies room, came back and tossed him a roll of toilet paper. I told him "just in case." He freaked out. I called him several hours later, told him "April Fools!" and he screamed so loudly, my ears are still ringing!

That's too funny! I've never been good at pulling pranks, but I have been known to fall for them...

Once, sometime in the 70's and when I still lived in South Africa, a radio station started just after midnight reporting a UFO sighting in Britain. The "RAF" and the the "SA Air Force" supposedly took over, tracking it for hours until just before noon when it looked like it was being brought down on a beach near Durban, where I lived at the time. They had "official" Air Force personnel warning people to stay away from the expected landing site, which happened to be near a military base. We didn't have television so we didn't get to see all the"fools" who rushed out to witness it, but I believe there were quite a few.
