In 2005, this tradition started when lottery tycoon Al Washington rigged an entire drawing so that everyone would win. When anyone went to collect the money they were told that they were a fool for buying lottery tickets. So then, the term was minted and celebrated as an unofficial holiday.
Years after his arrest Al was sentenced on this very day. April first would become widely recognized, and nationally celebrated as a day to piss people off. Did you have a prank devised this year for the holiday?
Starting after the April first of the next year people are no longer allowed to prank people in cars. The accident that took place claimed the lives of 23 brave souls that day. They would remember it the year after by telling people their loved ones had been in a car crash.
