It’s that time of the year when as a kid, I would literally not listen to anyone (even my parents) and be extra careful in what I was doing. It’s the first of April!
The day when people officially get the license to play practical pranks on each other. And once exposed, jokesters would shout “April fools” or desi people would sing “April fool banaya, tumko gussa aya” and derive pleasure from someone’s suffering.
Given the current situation, it’s these jokes and pranks that are keeping us sane. And since most of us have ample amount of time and also have a LIT internet connection, April Fools’ Day memes and jokes are trending online.
Here are some of them:

South Africans are known for their good spirit and a joke is always close by, sometimes it even replaces a bag of rubbish. 😅 Only in South Africa. pic.twitter.com/03lcaUk8sm

However, looking at the current health emergency, many people have decided to cancel the day. Many of them took to twitter and requested people to not play out risky pranks and pass on fake news or joke about coronavirus just for fun.

Can we cancel April Fool’s this year? What we’re living in already feels like a prank but without the “just kidding.”
