Does anybody flash-mob anymore? The Voice‘s regular web feature offers links to videos of various pranks. “We’ll have the uncanny sense of being unable to trust anyone, because even the most serious-minded person might loosen up on April Fool’s Day and try to pull our leg.” Click of the Wrist – Play the Fool, March 25, 2011. (For links to several classic flash-mob stunts, see also Click of the Wrist — In a Flash, from April 12, 2013.)
Enough with the fools already! Serious-minded Voice editor Karl Low rhymes off reasons he dislikes April Fools. “It’s become almost a way of a company showing how ‘cool’ it is by developing some absurd prank.” Editorial: Paradox of Fools, April 1, 2016.
