April Fools' Day is my least favorite holiday, and it's probably because I'm always getting pranked. Every year, I tell myself I'm not falling for anything anyone tries to pull over on me, but I always end up being a part of someone's joke. Though some of the jokes people play are actually kind of funny, I always find myself feeling let down because I can't believe I'm tricked every single year. So, this year I made a point to find some funny April Fools' Day pranks of my own.

The way I figure it, no one would really expect me to pull a prank for the day, which means it's easier for me to make it happen. The only issue with pulling a prank is wanting it to be something memorable. There's no point in doing it if you're not going to do it big, right? This year, I want my pranks to be one that people will try to pull on someone else for the following year. That's how you know you've successfully nailed April Fools' Day.

If you're like me and need a few ideas to deliver a great prank, these 11 April Fools' Day pranks are all solid options.
