The Museum of Hoaxes

Sunday is April Fool's Day. And my birthday. (Let's try not to think very long about what the significance of that might be, okey dokey?) So in honor of me, I direct you to The Museum of Hoaxes. Here you can read about the top 10 worst April Fool's hoaxes that backfired and the top 100 best April Fool's hoaxes of all time. And we're talking about significant hoaxes perpetrated by foreign governments, national news publications, and corporate leaders, among others. Be sure to take the hoax photo quiz, too. Enjoy. Browse. Find something to try out on Sunday.

Happy Birthday. It is my husbands birthday also.

It's my birthday too. Also the birthday of my father-in-law, cousin, and two friends. Small world. One thing in common: all getting teased about how unique we are to have an April 1st birthday. Yes, WE are all special!

Happy Birthday...

Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary, my mom as usual will call me up and ask me if we really did get married or if we are going to say APRIL FOOLS... I can't blame her though, we did get married in the county jail because it was were the magistrate was located. Heh.

Again, Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you! {It's my hubby's birthday too...I am glad that "fool's fall in love"}. =) Hope your day had lots of orange surprises for you.
My goodness! I was just browsing the comments and saw all the other notes about April 1 birthdays. It must be a "spring thing", huh?! Wishes for another year of color and fun. Even if you have to create it yourself!!

Happy Birthday!

One of the best jokes I've heard is to write someone a "missed phone call message" from a "Mr. Lyon" and give them the number to the zoo...

Hi! I'm delurking to add my voice to the chorus--my husband's birthday is April 1st too. The weird thing? When he was in grad school, we found out that EVERY YEAR in the sculpture department there was a grad with that birthday.
happy birthday!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone! So nice. I love hearing all your stories, too.

Secretly I like having an interesting birthday. People are less likely to forget it :) How self-centered of me.
