The Best Corporate April Fools Prank
Traditionally, I'd love pull some pranks on my friends on April Fools' Day. It's fun to prank on your friends, but one thing to bear in mind is to avoid practical pranks that'll cause unnecessary hardship or worse, ruins someone's plan for the day. Or else, if you don't choose to prank on your friends, you can choose to present yourself in some ways that's so-not-you, after all this is harmless and even better than doing things on your friends right? Maybe I should try this next year!
