Time to Retire April Fools

Part of the reason is that April Fools has long been running all year round.  My suggestion is that we formally invert the process, so that April 1st becomes the one day of the year when the news will be serious and not written by fools.  Something similar could happen in the other institutions.

Does April Fools exist in India? Was just learning today that the Chinese have a word for it.

Oh, yes, we have it here in abundant measure. We are an old British colony after all.
