Were you fooled today?

It’s April 1st, Fools’ Day. Social media was full of foolish behavior. Do you have a favorite fool?

My local ice cream shop announced their new flavor. Brussels sprouts. (gag)

I have just won 1 million dollars in lottery so now I’m hosting a big pool party at my house! Everyone on Fluther is invited!

I wasn’t. I did see some funny April Fool’s posts on FB, where at first I thought the post was true and then I realized it was a joke.

Pretty much the same for me as for @jca2. But I was off today and didn’t even leave my house so unless my cats had cooked up some sort of April Fool’s scheme, I wasn’t going to be subjected to that either way.

I feel dumb, but I actually was fooled momentarily when a travel influencer I follow posted an emotional Instagram story about how she was finally giving up regular travel and was going to start saving money to buy a house. I thought “wow, I guess everyone has to move on and settle down at some point HEY WAIT A MINUTE!!!”

Probably. I saw many posts on social media, and people are so crazy and/or dumb these days, that I can’t always tell what’s a joke and what’s a real event.

I got an ad from Zippo touting their new line of Left-handed lighters.

I am not sure. My local news said that the Las Vegas Tropicana casino and hotels was being demolished.

Also the same television news said that leftover chewing gum can help to recycle old plastic covid test kits.

^I’m tempted to look but you can’t fool me.

Nope, not going to do it.
