    The following is a good site that tells the history of April Fools day and what kind of pranks to pull.

    Did you know that Aprilphobia is fear of April Fool's Day!!

    Nice to have that cleared up.

    I thought Aprilphobia was fear of the IRS.

    I looked on the net for April Fool's jokes today. Found lots of jokes that were labeled such,
    but none of them really had anything to do w/ April Fool's day or any other special day.

    Just when you think the politicians can't get any goofier, they do. A Secretary of the Treasury who
    doesn't pay his taxes! And according to news reports it was the change in banking laws that
    contributed greatly to getting us into the financial mess. And he lobbied for those changes.

    I try not to hold his appearance against him.
