Too bad April Fool's did not fall on a work day for most of us.

As usual, I spent the day telling people who were barefoot or in sandles, et al, that their shoes were untied. Told my dogs that too, of course.

Put white food coloring in some milk.

Swapped out the sugar for some sucrose.

The dogs thought the shoelaces bit was funny.

As usual, I was in Spain on April 1st. The only people around here who have heard of April Fool's Day are expats. In northern Spain (about 1200 miles from here), near the French border, some people (a minority) have heard of it (and play tricks whose victims are "pescados de Abril" if they fall for them; but for some incomprehensible reason are not "peces de Abril" if they aren't caught) but even there, it's not like it is in the USA and other countries where the April Fool's Day tradition is live. Here it is 28th December instead of 1st April.
So it's still true that all the humour questions have a particular cultural bias. I suppose that's inevitable though.

You should have tried telling that one to cats. Or was the white coloring in the milk for them?

Being close to the USA border helps understanding their culture. Learning English in a Mexico-based USA-cultured institute helps even more.
Got my points, but no practical jokes yesterday since here in Mexico they are played, like in Spain, on December 28th.

Thank you, Steve, for the question.

Why not satire? Points only to "Practical Joke" is not justified.
Lost 7 points anyway.

Would have been even better if he didn't give any points for any answers. Then the question itself would be an April Fools joke!
