It’s not April Fool’s Day. It’s just National Tell a Joke Day. So, I’m saying: no need to go overboard, play any sophisticated pranks, or (and I’m sure this would never occur to you anyway) post something on the internet that isn’t true. Today is just a day to make someone laugh. If you’re unaccustomed to the procedure, don’t worry about it. Everybody has a first time. Here’s an example to get you started. You’re welcome.
