April Fools’!

So I’m not a big April Fools’ fan at all, but I thought it might be fun to have a post on the most interesting/funny April Fools’ “jokes” you’ve seen online today. The best I’ve seen yet today is this video of penguins flying from my favorite animal blog, Zooillogix.

That video is very funny and surprisingly realistic. 🙂 I only wish it ended with a penguin sitting on the beach in a Hawaiin shirt, sipping a Mai-Tai.

Really, there weren’t that many awesome April Fool’s showing this year.

Growing up, I always used to put food coloring in things, make up outrageous stories that my parents never believed, and try to put plastic wrap across my sister’s toilet (because I am an awfully mean human being).
