Default April Fool's Day sayings...

I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it. ~Jack Handey


We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. ~Japanese Proverb


Even the gods love jokes. ~Plato


You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. ~Abraham Lincoln


The trouble with practical jokes is that very often they get elected. ~Will Rogers


A man always blames the woman who fools him. In the same way he blames the door he walks into in the dark. ~Henry Louis Mencken


A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. ~Douglas Adams


It is the ability to take a joke, not make one, that proves you have a sense of humor. ~Max Eastman


Don't give cherries to pigs or advice to fools. ~Irish Proverb


A sense of humor is the ability to understand a joke-and that the joke is oneself. ~Clifton Paul Fadiman


It is better to weep with wise men than to laugh with fools. ~Spanish Proverb


I have great faith in fools - self-confidence, my friends call it. ~Edgar Allan Poe


The aim of a joke is not to degrade the human being, but to remind him that he is already degraded. ~George Orwell


Men reach their sexual peak at eighteen. Women reach theirs at thirty-five. Do you get the feeling that God is playing a practical joke? ~Rita Rudner

April 1. This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four. ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson, 1894


April fool, n. The March fool with another month added to his folly. ~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary


Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. ~Chinese Proverb


Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee,
And I'll forgive Thy great big one on me.
~Robert Frost, "Cluster of Faith," 1962


He who is born a fool is never cured. ~Proverb


Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed. ~Mark Twain


If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings. ~Welsh Proverb

Suppose the world were only one of God's jokes, would you work any the less to make it a good joke instead of a bad one? ~George Bernard Shaw


Real friends are those who, when you feel you've made a fool of yourself, don't feel you've done a permanent job. ~Author Unknown


One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late. ~Jack Handey

I wish Louisiana would learn something from WY! Actually, a national income tax is illegal in our Constitution, but Congress seems to ignore that fact.
