What were the best April Fools day pranks of 2019?
That depends on the type of prank that appeals to you, but in 2019, there were plenty of great examples.
For April Fool's Day, businesses often announce hoax products via social media, hoping to catch consumers off guard (and capture a bit of viral traffic along the way). Of course, some are more successful than others.
This year, dating site Tinder created substantial controversy by introducing a new "height verification badge." The idea: Weed out the users who lied about their height.
"It's the tool we've had in our back-pockets for years, but we were hoping your honesty would allow us to keep it there," the company wrote on its blog when announcing the (totally fake) feature. "Our verification tool is super easy to use, and extremely hard to misuse."
Other pranks were more...obvious. In the United Kingdom, McDonald's announced a "milkshake sauce pot," which would allow customers to cover their fries with melted milkshake.
Google is known for rolling out annual April Fool's jokes, and this year, they launched one of their most elaborate--and ridiculous--to date.
"Throughout time, humans have created more and more effective ways to communicate with each other," wrote Matthew Feigal, a Google "plant engineer," on the company's official product blog. "But technology hasn't quite made it there with flowers, even though it's no secret that members of the floral world do talk to one another."
"Thanks to great advancements in artificial intelligence, Google Home is now able to understand tulips, allowing translation between Tulipish and dozens of human languages," Feigal wrote.
The product--ostensibly developed in the Netherlands, which produces 12.5 billion flowers per year--would allow flowers to ask their owners for more water, nutrients, or sunlight. Google Home users could activate the (very fake) feature by saying, "Hey, Google, talk to my tulip."
The company also announced a new "screen cleaner" feature for its Files by Google app (available on Android). The feature could reportedly "wash away smudges and polish your screen" by using a "haptic micromovement generator." Of course, it wasn't real, to the great disappointment of many Android users.
Hundreds of other major brands issued hoaxes this April Fool's Day, and some of those hoaxes were slightly disgusting. Food delivery service FreshDirect announced Caulk, the world's first commercial cauliflower milk.
"This is so much better than trying to milk my cauliflower by hand," a happy (but fake) customer wrote.
"Finally, a chunky, lumpy milk to have with my morning coffee," wrote another.
But if you prefer more traditional practical jokes, you might appreciate this simple-but-evil prank from St. Anne's Primary School in Ormskirk, England: A teacher handed out impossible word searches to grade 3 students.
"How long should I leave them looking for words that aren't there?!" the instructor wrote on social media, along with a picture of several confused grade schoolers. The school quickly attracted attention from traditional media outlets like The Guardian and BBC1.
For our money, St. Anne's Primary School wins. While corporate April Fool's Day jokes can be fun, we think the classic pranks are more in line with the spirit of the holiday--and they're certainly more entertaining.

Life is a game of chance, there are two ways this can result: A happy relationship, or a humorous reject.

If you make alliances with a cast member, they'll tell you to play pranks on other cast characters. For example, if you ally yourself with Gwen, then she'll have you play pranks on Heather and Courtney, which makes them mad, and then makes them your frenemies. They'll take revenge on you, so be careful.
