Nobody really can say when did the tradition of the April fools start, but whenever it is, this day is celebrated every year by a bunch of people pranking each other in the most hilarious way possible.
When it comes to the best April Fool’s pranks of all time, Great Britain is a world leader. Indeed, many believe a BBC TV hoax, broadcast over half a century ago still comes in at #1. In 1957 the news show Panoramareported that, thanks to a mild winter, Swiss farmers enjoyed a bumper spaghetti crop.
To prove this, it broadcast a three-minute report of Swiss farmers carefully plucking, or “harvesting,” strands of spaghetti from trees. Legions of viewers were duped and many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their very own spaghetti tree. The BBC advised each caller: “Place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.”
But that’s just one example, below there’s a long list of pranks people have done on April fools that will crack you up. Scroll down to get inspired for your next prank.

The more doors in your workplace, the better. Attach signs reading, “Door is broken, use other door,” to every entrance and exit in the office, with arrows pointing in every possible direction.
