A quick history tour

April Fool’s day finds its roots in century-old tradition. Most people think this tradition started somewhere around 1572, however, there is evidence that leads us all the way back to the Roman era.

The French are famous for sticking a paper fish to the backs of unsuspecting friends. And the English? We of course yell “April Fools’!” when we made fun of someone. In Scandinavia, it is tradition to publish an entirely fake story on the front page of the newspapers.

Nowadays, media and companies are in on this century-old tradition as well. Publishing funny or strange ‘fake’ news items usually results in funny mistakes. Google, for example, has been joking around on the first of April since 2000 and has a long list of famous pranks such as a lifesize Picasa album, using your body to use Google Docs and Google Teleport, which you could use to time travel.

  • One of your friends is finally recovering from a breakup with his or her terrifying ex? Then send something along the lines of: ‘I can’t forget you. I want you back!
