Like freaking clockwork, it's that time of year again when the inner pranksters of the world crawl out of hibernation and terrorize unsuspecting victims with childish antics resemblant of Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd days—yessss.

Right now, we're on our death beds cracking up at the ridiculousness only April Fools' Day can bring. God bless the Internet. And good sports.

The baby isn't born yet, so there's still time for Beyoncé and Jay Z. Just sayin'.

We fail to see the hilarity of this—but goodbye, work! Hello, unemployment.

When I'm not stalking future-but-never-going-to-happen husbands on Facebook, you can catch me eating at one of NYC's B-rated or below dining establishments—A-rated restaurants are for basics. Fun fact: Bloody Marys got me into eating celery on the regular. And for your safety, please do not disturb before 10 a.m. or coffee, whichever comes first.
