Happy April Fool's Day
The first of April, some do say
Is set apart for All Fool's Day;
But why the people call it so
Nor I, nor they themselves, do know,
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.
So, rather than appear foolish afterward, I renounce seeming clever now.
- William of Baskerville in 'The Name of the Rose'
