April Fool's Day: Fool's Paradise


Here are some time-honored practical jokes for the most foolish day of the year.

1. Put blue food coloring in the milk.

2. Tape down the phone button so the person who picks up the receiver will think the line is dead.

3. Wrap a rubber band around the kitchen sink sprayer so whoever turns on the faucet gets a big, wet surprise.

4. Place a big ol' fake roach in a family member's slipper.

    hehehe. These are just too funny. I think I may try the food coloring in the milk trick for my girls. They would love it and being blue or another fun color would be neat.
