A for April Fool 2013

April 01, 2013 27 Comments

Today is 1st April- April Fool's day. Also known as- All fool's day. It is a day when people play practical jokes, spread hoax and pull other's leg bringing them to a "make believe" situation and watching their "bakra" expression when the cat is out of bag.

I have almost forgotten about it until I read this news on Bollywood actors and ex couple, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone getting back together and planning a monsoon wedding. It is no news that are paired opposite each other in the upcoming "Yeh Jawani, hai deewani" directed by Ayan Mukerji. (Wake up Sid) and sparks are sure to fly. I am so much waiting to see their onscreen chemistry. However, the marriage thing just ruined the gag, making it predictably predictable April Fool's joke. 

We all love this onscreen couple. Don't we? And it is indeed a good news that they are getting back together but all the wedding thing is little out of way. Well that spoof of i-Diva is nothing in front of what Google planned. Like all years, This year too Google in order to out do itself announced the decade long shutdown of and launch of Google nose, the new "scentsenation" in town and also Gmail blue. Video here- Click.

So, what is your prank plan for the day? Or are you busy being victim of someone else' prank? If yes, do share your prank plans in the comments box below. Whatever you do, pl ensure that you do not hurt anyone- physically, mentally or socially. The pranks like throwing banana peel on the road, pouring glue on chair etc is a strict no-no. However, if you had a bad April Fool's day, do share so that people can read the first level account and refrain themselves from any wrongdoings. and Or may be, you would like to write about your most memorable April Fool's day ever. While it would be interesting to know, have you ever wondered why our financial year starts on 1st April? :)

  1. Ah yes, April Fools Day. One I never cared for even though no one ever really pulled many pranks on me. I just haven't been into the prank aspect. I preferred May day or whatever day it is where you get some flowers (or weeds but hey as kids they look like flowers) drop them on someone's doorstep, ring the bell and run.

    This year I did post a picture in my bio for a writing site (I've never posted a picture of myself) and will see if anyone notices. It's a picture I found online of a guy and I'm female. If someone notices, will be funny, if they don't notice, oh well.

    1. Yup...I too have almost forgotten the day and given pranks a rest. By nature I barely ever did any prank..The only pranks were actually my adventure streaks when I would climb mango trees, factory shed etc.

      Thanks for writing in :)

  3. I've been so involved in the A to Z Challenge, I almost forgot today was April Fool's Day!

    1. Lolz never mind...since you got to know later, any pranks did you play?

  4. You didn't mention anything about the prank you played or how you got punked today - I was curious to read about that! :D

    1. No one played a prank on me. However I played prank on two people- a friend of mine and my younger brother. While the first one was successful, second one fell flat as my long distanced younger baby bhai was too busy with his work and GFs to respond :( booohooo

  5. Nothing beats google, it took me a some time to realize it was a prank :)

    1. Lolz...They pulled a tough one on people and no wonder, they are Google- and where they are :)

      Cheers to!

  6. Well, I never miss an opportunity to nail my Mother with something, I nearly forgot until I pulled up your blog to comment on! So when she came out to the kitchen for a bottle of water, I was prepared! I told her to watch that little spider....don't step on it.....she looked around, and said "well I will give you that one"! Ha Ha....April fool! Simple but fun each year. Thanks for a great post and, the reminder!

  7. Oh you taking up the challenge eh!? All the best :) Good start!

  8. I do not like pranks at all, playing them or falling victim to one. Although, I'll admit to enjoying watching them play out! :) Good luck this month!
