  • Derivative April Fools are always the best ones, because you have some chance of not being suspected.

    One of these years when I actually remember April 1 is coming up, I want to expand on the fool I did at work one year, when I forged an email from the CEO saying that the company's IPO was being cancelled, and as a result we'd have to fire 1/3rd of the staff.

    Not only did I score the original fool, but then the CEO came in at 10am, I got to watch 10 or 20 people congratulating him on his April Fool, and he had no idea what the hell they were talking about. :)

    Of course, in the ultimate irony, 6 months later they cancelled the company's IPO, and fired 1/3rd of the staff, including me :(
