The Downsides to April Fools
Opinion by: Ryan Perkes
The celebration of April Fools day can be very dangerous to the victims of the pranks. There have been pranks where people have dialed 911 and for that the joker faces charges.
The pranks have even gone as far as world wide like on April 1st 2003 when the ambassador of Russia pulled a prank in a gag press conference saying that “The Americans have accidentally fired a nuclear missile into British forces, killing seven.” As the reporters fell silent and still, the ambassador paused then yelled “April Fools!”
Only a few days after this unexpected moment of levity, the Iraqi government completely collapsed. Faking deaths, fake robberies, and many more reasons are why April Fools can be harmful and dangerous.
On a high school level, April Fools can be hurtful as it gives bullies an excuse to be mean and because some people don’t know when enough is enough.
April Fools is Nothing to Fool With
Opinion by: Sam Goff
April fools, the day that many people use as an excuse to prank their friends. It’s on the first of April. This should be a national holiday because it makes people laugh from all the pranks that people pull. We don’t have enough national holidays, so we need more for us to enjoy.
These days everything has been done so if you are looking for a prank to pull all you have to do is get on the internet and search for some ideas. You can always choose from one of the many classics like filling oreos with toothpaste instead of the cream filling, or a really funny one is putting saran wrap in a doorway so when someone walks through it they fall.
April fools is coming around the corner and it is a dangerous game that you need to be ready with a prank for someone or you need to be on high alert to make sure that you don’t get pranked. It’s a dog eat dog world that day you’re either the predator or the prey. Stay safe and watch your back.
