Well, another year, another day where everyone makes terrible I’m Leaving IF “Jokes.” Well random person who may or may not be reading this thread, let me tell you the truth, they’re not funny. Honestly, they are old and as I said in an older thread about something like this. With April Fools day around the corner, we must all learn how to make a good joke.
So person who is reading this topic, how do you make a good April Fools Day joke or prank? It’s quite simple really, ORIGINALITY. Being original in your jokes could spell the difference between getting someone or getting laughed at. Another beneficial idea is to try something unconventional or that someone has not done before, as doing something nobody has seen yet will take them by surprise. Thirdly, don’t spam the IFC with shoddily made forums that will just annoy everyone. This is easily common sense, and will just get you suspended.
What are some other good ways to make an original April Fools joke? Another idea is to put detail into your joke. Plan it out and get a good start on it, but don’t put an overly large amount of detail in. You want to make it seem believable at first, and then deliver the punchline knowing all of you, most likely something to do with oatmeal or a rickroll.

So what happens when you make a bad or shoddily made joke? Well, it only serves to confuse people and then anger them. For example, by saying that you are leaving the IFC will only serve to annoy and anger people when they are bombarded by these crappy and annoying jokes. Refer to my first April Fools PSA for these types of threads to learn more.
Now as we wrap up, remember, make something people will laugh at. Making a joke that everyone will find funny is what April Fools Day is about. I know that the IFC can be an overly serious place, but April Fools Day is a day to screw around and have fun. Always be creative with your jokes, and try out new things. Don’t just make a crappy forum that just says you are leaving the IFC with a rickroll. Nobody likes them anymore, and it will only serve for you to get warned and/or suspended. I hope you all found this informative. When the day rolls around, I hope to see some amazing jokes that will make us all laugh our butts off!
But also go have some fun!
Edit 1: yes i know its slightly early for this, but its for a reason
