With today being April Fool's Day, restaurant chains and franchises around the world will take a jab at pranking their customers. Although some of these hysterical pranks can go pretty well, with everyone having a laugh, some have already gone terribly wrong.

With one pretty prominent restaurant chain already outraging customers around the world for their apparently not-so-funny practical joke, maybe they should just leave the April Fool's Day festivities to the professionals.

In case you didn't know, McDonald's Australia posted their joke to both Instagram and Facebook this Monday, announcing the release of a brand new "McPickle" Burger.

For pickle lovers, their dream come true was just a prank, leading to crowds of super angry customers.
