Top 10 Best Internet April Fool’s Pranks

April Fool’s Day is a time for pranks and fun while enjoying the reactions our friends make while hearing news that in reality are impossible to happen.

1. Snail mail uploads at Imgur

This one tops the list because it would have made the most sense about 20 years ago. Back then, internet was so slow, you would have been better off just mailing off the bundle of pictures.
