The Internet has ruined April Fools’ Day.

sad jester

I used to love April Fools Day. Pranks and japes, peanut butter on doorknobs, cling film on toilets; getting your friends good. Then came the Internet. Now the day is a minefield of “is it true or isn’t it” stories all over the place. Some of them are idiotic, while others are so plausible it hurts when you find out you’ve been pranked. So far today I have been convinced Paul McGann was going to make a special appearance in the next season of Doctor Who, that a self righting bike existed, and that Olivia Colman was being considered as the next Bond. You can’t believe anything you read – an entire day’s surfing rendered pointless.
