Every April 1, people by custom pull pranks, and this is especially true online, with phony news items, outrageous-but-soberly-delivered claims, and elaborate hoaxes. As I have said, the Cranach blog does not and will not do that. But others do. Nevertheless, I get a kick out of them.
If you come across any April Fool’s Day stunts on the internet, please post a link to them in the comments. That way we can all benefit.
