Well, I've already fallen for one fake story today.

Robert Pattinson CONFIRMED as Negan in 'The Walking Dead'


Following the tense and bloody Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead I thought that we'd be doomed to a long summer devoid of walkery goodness, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. An announcement from AMC earlier today confirmed that former Twilight saga star, Robert Pattinson, has been cast as the ultimate Big Bad from the comic series, Negan!


What have you fallen for today?

Nothing so far.

I have this crazy habit of using my brains.

Yes, it is a nice view indeed. And it's not a horse, it's something called "logic and common sense".

My mum sent me a text telling me it was snowing...

Didn't get out of bed to check...

But the lack of snow when I finally got up and left the house told me it wasn't quite true!


Can't say I fell for it though.

Nothing wrong with riding your high horse in the Elysium fields of your very own ivory tower...

Internet pranksters are the worst, if you fell for them shame on...shame on you, if you fool me you can't fooled again.

Most of us were anticipating online pranks so we knew what to expect-and it's funny when you see people fall for them.

I saw a news in physics about the CERN discovering "The Force" (the one in Star Wars).

I didn't fall for it. Here are the reasons why:

-There are four forces in the Universe, thus "The Force" is by itself a contradiction

-The article showed a man shooting electricity with his bare hands whereas I know that human tissue would undergo destruction under such high-voltage currents

-I knew today was April First.

Yeah I didn't really believe this to be honest.

LHC finding this would be worldwide news, surely.



I thought April Fools only lasted until 12pm...


It's 15:37 where I am...

Oh, is is absolutely funny. When I read that this morning I didn't think of the date. I thought it was pretty funny once I realized what it was, which is why I shared it here.

This thread is in the spirit of admitting that one can fall for simple things. I have no hubris with admitting what I've been taken for, unlike others here.

Media must be bored and/or looking for ratings.

The April Fool day I really come across something I cannot see through, I will be glad to say "this one really got me". But until now I have yet to see such a prank...

Is it hard to breathe that high up in the rarefied atmosphere?

Hehe I gave you a star for the sheer wit of your reply


I am just saying that sometimes, you can see the BS if you actually simply lift your head out of the sand...

Don't get me wrong-we all have been caught off guard, But the internet pranks are to be expected and half of them are blatantly obvious.

The Practical Pranksters are the ones you have to look out for.

I had an April fool joke played on me one time. I had a while you were out note on my desk. It said Mr Lyons called. So I called the number. The person on the other end picked up and said
National Zoo.
