What is the best April Fool’s Day prank you have ever been a part of?

“In college, some friends came in my dorm while we were gone and completely swapped my roommate’s stuff with mine … from wall décor and beds to everything in our drawers and pantry. They really got us!”
-Christine Perrenot

“We had a fake roach we would always prank each other with in my family. I woke up early on April Fool’s Day before my dad, at 5 a.m., and put the fake roach in his coffee cup. I hid under the dining room table and waited for him to find it. He drank the whole cup and never noticed.”
-Melissa Southam 

“I do not play pranks so that I am not pranked!”
-Miriam Callen

“When I was growing up in Indianapolis, we used to always listen to the radio while getting ready for school (hopeful that school had closed for snow). One April Fool’s Day, a local radio station reported that the Soldiers and Sailors Monument (center of downtown) had been sold to the island of Guam, which planned to paint it green in honor of Guam’s national vegetable, the asparagus.”
