“Ha! Did you see his face when he found out it wasn’t actually a donut!” Yes, it’s the day where we lay aside all of our inhibitions and totally fool the daylights out of people we care about.

My thoughts? As long as your April Fool’s Day prank uses an aardvark and makes someone cry or passout from the pain of laughter, it’s perfectly ok.

As for SolidSmack, we’re seriously gonna pull the wool over you eyes with tomfoolery reminiscent of a can of live snakes being spray into your face, but way less pain and no swelling.
