April 1st is an odd day for us all. Half of the world’s population spend the day cowering in fear of being fooled, the other half spend the day scheming. No one is safe, nothing is sacred. And really, you should be wary of all news that is announced on this day (and March 31st and maybe even April 2nd — actually, just always be wary). Nonetheless, April Fools’ Day brings out some surprising hilarity in everyone, or at least a few product launches and webpage redesigns that will give you a chuckle or two. So here is every prank, joke, gag, hijinks and scam that we’ve found online that you should know about. We’ll keep updating throughout the day as well. Don’t forget to tell us which joke was your favorite in the comments below.
