Earth Day 2015: Which Animal are You?

You can search Google for answers to all kinds of animal questions: What does an aye-aye eat? Where do narwhals live? How long is a toco toucan's beak? And this Earth Day, you can turn to Google for the answer to something that you’ve always needed to know: which animal are you???
Clicking on this year’s Earth Day logo (or searching for “Earth Day quiz”) presents one of the Internet’s favorite pastimes: a totally scientific and 1,000% accurate personality quiz. Take the time to answer a few questions to determine and share your Earth Day animal. And, of course, you’re only a search away from learning more about nature’s precious pals and interesting inhabitants (fyi: kakapo is the heaviest parrot).
If you need proof of the accuracy of our quiz, look no further than the testimonials of some of our wildlife-loving, quiz-taking friends who reported back on their spirit animals:

April Fool's Day

I want to tell you... I just gave birth to 5 babies last weekend. Isn't that exciting? Oh, you don't believe me? Okay then, I stole some money from a bank on Saturday night. Now do you believe me? (Actually, I hope you don't.) April 1st, or April Fools Day, is the day when we play jokes on people. Do you have it in your country?
bulleta fool- someone who doesn't understand what is happening
bulletto tease- laugh at, make fun of someone, joke about something
bulletto play a joke (on someone)- to do something funny that another person doesn't know about or suspect at first
bulletcontainer- something that holds something else, like a box, a bottle, or a jar
bulletto play a trick (on someone)- same as play a joke
bulletin the spirit of funwith an atmosphere of fun, just for fun, lighthearted

April Fool's Day started in the sixteenth century in Europe. Before that time, New Year's Day was celebrated on April 1st. Then a new calendar was introduced called the Gregorian calendar. January 1st became the first day of the year, but many people did not know about it. So those who continued to celebrate New Year's Day on April 1st were teased. They were called fools.
Nowadays we play jokes on people on April 1st. For example, someone might put salt in the sugar container so another person could "accidentally" put it in their coffee. Or someone might change the time on another person's alarm clock so that person would unknowingly wake up earlier or later than planned. Or maybe a person would tell a lie to make someone else shocked.
After we play the trick, we say "April Fool." Then the poor person realizes he was fooled. It is generally done in the spirit of fun and doesn't cause any real harm to anyone. 
Do you have any great jokes to play on anyone today? Try it out. Just don't forget to say "April Fool" when the other person begins looking a little confused.
