I figured more countries did it, but apparently not all of them. Two people have still not caught on to what I was doing in a post. And anyone that knows me on the forum knows I wouldn't have made the mistakes I made in this post. I guess I did not make it obvious enough.
But I don't think the middle east respects april fool's day.
As most of them use a different calendar, don't have April on it, and won't have a month crossover on what's the first of April in the rest of the world most years, probably not :)
In other countries it's highly individual. Personally I don't do it, and find most of the "jokes" that are done less than funny (like the kid who was thrown on a bonfire here and left to burn to death as a joke, which would have ended in worse than full body 3rd degree burns had it not been for bystanders).
