We made it through, guys! 

Yesterday was April Fool's Day, and aside from all the parents wrapping up veggies and fruits as chocolates to fool their kids on Easter, there were plenty of pranks pulled on us all around the world.

We all know to be careful about what we read on April 1st... but that doesn't mean that some of the stories aren't brilliant ideas. 

Here are some of the best April Fool's Day pranks this year.

Disney Buys WWE 

Disney owns Marvel, and they make epic action-adventure flicks all the time. Disney buying WWE wasn't much of a reach. Wrestling is, after all, a big scale theater production... but this was not true.

The Lego Vacuum


Canned Sparkling Milk

Equally as disgusting as it is foolish. Nobody wants this.


Burger King Chocolate Whopper


Tommy Wiseau's The Room, The Musical - By Lin-Manuel Miranda


Cyclops Skull Discovery


Netflix Acquires Seth Rogen

Sad, but true - this was, indeed, an April Fool's Day joke. Netflix has not "acquired" Seth Rogen, at least not in the way they claimed. 

Rogen does, however, have a comedy special coming out this week!


T-Mobile's Smart Shoe Phone


Interp-Brit, BritBox

This one has to be my favourite. We spoke about the new British streaming service, BritBox, here before. Their April Fool's joke is hilarious! 

Their "new plugin" will change the dialogue and accents of the content you watch to an American one. The outrage! 


The Halal Guys White Sauce Toothpaste

I have no words. Enough said. 


Some people also tried to pull a fast one you announcing Disneyland Toronto - but I have already written about why this should happen, so I'm not even going to include that nonsense. Instead, read what I wrote about why Toronto should get a Disney theme park.

These are just a small handful of the April Fool's Day jokes I caught over the long weekend. I'm sure I missed some good ones.

On the flipside, here are just a few headlines (and links) to some news stories that people thought were a joke - but they are actually REAL stories. Go figure.

A man was stabbed during a pub crawl, returned back to the bar for another beer - with a knife in his back.


An 11-foot Aligator bathes in family's pool.


Anti-Trump artist sets up unauthorized performance art piece inside Trump hotel room - complete with McDonald's garbage and releasing live rats.


Middle Aged Men in Lycra - The Movie... No, I'm serious. This one is a real story.


Happy April, Montreal!
