You either love or hate April Fools' Day. If you love it, you’re probably the master prankster who always wins the day. If you hate it, you have a master prankster in your life that you actively try to avoid once a year. Regardless of your stance, I’ve rounded up some April Fools' Day memes to get you ready for all the amazing and horrible pranks coming your way.
I grew up in a house with a master prankster for a father, so April Fools' Day was the one day I always had my guard up. From the moment I woke up, before I even moved, I would check to make sure there was no shaving cream in my hand and that my entire room wasn’t covered in sticky notes. I saw everything from salt in the sugar bowl to silly string fights throughout my childhood.
April Fools' Day brings up both love and hate for me, but I have to applaud the pranksters out there who really go the extra mile on this day. It’s like Hunger Games for adults where the winners are the ones who survive without being pranked. I hate being the victim (as we all do), but I can’t help but burst out laughing when I see a good prank being nailed in the depths of the Internet universe. So for all the mixed emotions it brings up for everyone, get started with these April Fools' Day memes, and may the odds be ever in your favor…
