AFD is so passé if you’re a fakeologist.

April Fools’ Day or April Fool’s Day (sometimes called All Fools’ Day) is an annual celebration commemorated on April 1 by playing practical jokesand spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April fools. People playing April Fool jokes often expose their prank by shouting “April fool(s)” at the unfortunate victim(s). Some newspapers, magazines and other published media report fake stories, which are usually explained the next day or below the news section in smaller letters.

    “Conspiracy Theory Survivors” unite!

    Trapped in a hoax: survivors of conspiracy theories speak out

    “Together with their first cousins, fake news, they are challenging society’s trust in facts. At its most toxic, this contagion poses a profound threat to democracy by damaging its bedrock: a shared commitment to truth.”

    Seems like someone changed months…. Mmm plus we have the customary late 1700’s date stamps..

    April fool (n.)
    1680s; April-gowk (from Old Norse gaukr “a cuckoo”) is a northern variant. April Fool’s Day customs of sending people on false errands seem to have come to England from France late 17c.; originally All Fool’s Day (1712). In Cumberland, Westmorland and northern parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire, however, May 1 was the day for hoaxing, and the fool was a May gosling. That custom was first attested 1791.
