14 Of The Best April Fools' Day Memes For People Who Hate Being April Fools
Because whomp whomp.
Ah, April Fools' Day. The one day of the year I make a concerted effort to stay under my covers and avoid people at all cost. Who am I kidding? That's every day of the year.
But April Fools' Day is particularly difficult when you already have trust issues. So personally, I'm always on the lookout for the best April Fools' Day memes to express that unparalleled frustration.
After all, whenever someone posts a somewhat controversial Facebook status, I'm the first one handing out the side-eye of doubt any day of the year.
And on April 1st, all posts must immediately be deemed suspicious.
One year, not too long ago, my friend shared the news that she was pregnant on Facebook. Everyone and their mother jumped in to congratulate her and just as I was about to comment, I realized the date: April 1. Then I remembered that this woman hates children, so obviously 2 + 2 = 4 = NOT TRUE!
I think that joke was just plain cruel given that currently, "more than 5 million people of childbearing age in the United States — or one in every 10 couples — have problems with infertility."
So enough with the fake pregnancy news this year, OK?
Then there are the pranks. Fun, right? Wrong! I'm not really a Grinch and I do enjoy a good joke, but when it comes to making a fool out of someone, it's just not cool. And if you're over the age of 13, it's even less cool.
Got that, Frank from accounting? No more hiding staplers in my jello!
Yes, April Fools' Day is meant to be a time to have fun, but keep in mind that people do have feelings. Even anti-social introverts like myself.
And sometimes, these pranks or jokes or even hoaxes really can cause someone to lose their trust in you year-round, even if there is a whole freakin' holiday dedicated to them.
So here's my idea: Let's leave funny post-it notes on people's desks, send texts with jokes or emojis, and post funny memes, GIFs, and videos on our social media. But let's cut the tricks and pranks. I'm too old for this stuff, and you probably are too (#sorrynotsorry).
To get you started in that vein, enjoy these funny April Fools' Day memes and jokes that perfectly sum up how I sure feel about the day.
