April Fools is about putting a rubberband on the spray nozzle of your sink. It's not about lying about the death of a loved one.
The Hokey Pokey. That's what it's all about.

You know, I have a pretty inappropriate sense of humor and even I think this was waaaaay over the line. I'd be pissed, too.

I'm so sorry, Amber! That's one of the worst April Fool's I've ever heard.
You know, people have different senses of humor, but there are just certain kinds of "jokes" you just DON'T try to pull. I don't like April Fool's because there are always some of those- cruel lies.

I usually am way over the top when it comes to April Fools (I am making my friend take a prank always positive pregnancy test for heavens sakes lol)

but even I agree, this was way out of line. It goes beyond the momentary OH MY GOD of jumping up from behind a bush or getting your toilet syran wrapped and gets to really actually hurting people..

That isn't funny, that's sick.

My friend posted on FB she was heading to Vegas to marry her forever BF (they have a wedding in the future...) it was cute, but faking a death is way inappropriate.

That kind of garbage is never, ever funny. The worst is when I've heard folks say "you should know what day it is" or anything along those lines.


Tragic events don't sit at standby until April 1st is over. Terrible things can and do happen today, like any other day.

I'm very proud of my contact lists everywhere (FB, Goggle+, Twitter, etc). I've seen some funny "oops just kidding" gags today (some that actually "got" me too, since I was at work!) and not ONE of them had a death or anything else tragic involved. It's not hard to pull a prank on someone without hurt feelings.

I'm very sorry that you had deal with such a thing, especially so close to your friend's anniversary of death. People are real dicks sometimes.

Thank you so much guys. I'm still pretty upset over it. There are a lot of people pissed about it right now. It caused such a mess on Facebook. I absolutely hate April fools for reasons like this. Light fun pranks are one thing... But faking a death.... It's plain awful.

That's just horrible. I bet his family is reaming him for this one. I know my mom would kick my ass from here to California if I pulled a stunt like that. Not to mention my sister. 0_o

I've never been fond of April Fool's Day myself. I never play pranks on anyone because I hate having them played on me.

I'll say that not one person on my FB has done any April Fool's shenanigans

That was a horrible "prank"
