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 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.

Cyclops Skull Discovery

What you see before you is a skull of a cyclops—the large central hole is the lone eye socket. Happy #AprilFoolsDay! The myth of the 1-eyed giant Cyclops may have been fueled by discoveries of fossils of ancient elephants, with the central nasal cavity mistaken for an eye socket. pic.twitter.com/mKgfuZi17x

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!

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!
