    What pranks did you pull? I made that fake premiere date thread on the CN board, but that was literally a last minute thing. The hardest part was making up titles for episodes of shows that haven't even came yet. LOL

    Another prank I was going to do was to go to my mom's Netflix account and lock her in the kids section. I didn't do this because she mostly watches Netflix when my dad is at work, and yesterday was a Saturday.

    The entire day was pretty great for multiple reasons. As for any "real life pranks" I pulled...there were none. My sister came over and I don't think she even realized what day it was and brought over some Asian food.

    Also I saw Moana for the first time yesterday.

    Nothing. No one I know did anything and neither did I.

    I had a blast, though not as huge as compared to previous years. As always, since 2014, I made posts on Cafe Toonzone saying that I was a merman, and claiming that I was a merman in various other sections of the forum. Believe it or not, even though I think of being the impossible - I become THAT impossible in dreams.

    Anyway, my avatar was momentarily changed for the occasion - though due to massive timezone differences I had to change it yesterday at 11am and changed back to Bloo shortly before 11am today. For the interests of full disclosure:
    [​IMG]
    The image came from Fish Hooks fanart of a supposed "mermaid alternate universe" - once again, doing what I do all year - making a post where Fish Hooks gets a mermaid form - Mermaid Hooks. Strangely enough, I almost predicted the FH episode where they become human the first time I made this back in 2013, which is when the show, according to another user, "jumped the shark". Basically FH was renewed and then the characters became merpeople.

    Usually I make some pranks as launchpads for potential content for my webtoon. Last year, I made a fake premiere thread for Milo of the Deep, which someone didn't believe it was a joke. This year, I took my inspiration from @Eggy's thread on Disney Channel in Drusselstein and I made a thread with basic info about Disney Channel Limith, the undersea kingdom it is set in. I had the idea for Disney Channel Limith for half a year now but only now I could make it properly.

    Unfortunately, as I live in Portugal, I don't catch up on Toonzone's primetime (1-5am WET) since I'm asleep and, when the last pranks were posted, I lose my will. Waking up on April 2nd is weird because you have to wait a whole year, even if you forgot a prank or two that you wanted to do in the first place. I watched some episodes of Sheep in the Big City on Wednesday and I wanted to thrown in an "ANGURY", but I forgot completely. The idea of "Happy Elegance!", the sequel to last year's "Happy Rico!" post, featuring the ad for Bebe Elegance, was thought of the day after April Fool's Day last year. I even wanted to do a thing with the Wasp T12 Speechtool and Wasp Technologies from the short-lived British series Nathan Barley, but nah, no time.

    In fact, nothing can't beat 2014 and 2016, which were my best years for pranking so far. 2015 for me was weird because I kept repeating Rupavahini/English as a Life Skill jokes to no recognition, but in 2016 I topped that gag.

    I think my favorite part of this year was The Nutshack getting a lot of praise by most of us, apart of the show's reputation online to work the effect of April Fools.

    Had fun roleplaying as Hinata from Naruto on the forums I frequent. Years ago I made a Bald Hinata avatar when Toonami got to the episode "Hinata goes Bold!", after noticing a significant number of people online thought it read "Hinata Goes Bald." April Fools gave me a chance to reuse that.

    As for physical, off-line pranks, alas I was working and had little time to prepare one. Oh well.

    I'm not big on April Fools and don't normally do anything, but this year, I started a thread about SpongeBob bing cancelled in favor of The Loud House being Nick's new cash cow. I also started the Nick Sr. thread, but I was using Nick's idea, so it wasn't really my own doing.

    I made the Sword Art Online movie thread in the Toonami Forum and the Fan Service Thread in the Anime Forum. Shonen Jump vs. Capcom was also me. Toonzone seemed to be moving slower for me on April Fool's Day, probably because everyone was making threads. In real life, I joined a game stream with some friends in Britain while some guy in the Twitch comments section linked us to a porn site.

    I'm not really into April Fools, but I made a thread post about Nick@Nite ending, due to same 4 shows being on autopilot, and it irritates me that Nick@Nite does not have originals or variety, so I made a thread fooling everyone, but only one user did not appreciate my post because he did not understand anything about april fools day
