There have been so many fun social media jokes this year in honour of April Fools’ Day. 364 years are business as usual but on April 1, anything could happen. Have you seen any really fun ones this year? These are a few of what I think are the best April Fools’ Day jokes on social media that I found while scrolling on my phone this morning:

Mountain Equipment Co-op debuted their cropped winter jacket design, which was hilariously impractical, particularly for the Canadian winters as we experience them:

New Product

We've been excited for this one since our very first meeting. The new Cropped Insulated Jacket by MEC, because sometimes you want to be warm, but your belly wants to be free. Free shipping on orders over $50.

The Daily Hive Vancouver announced the relocation of our provincial capital to the Vancouver Art Gallery grounds. This was their Facebook post which I thought was so hilarious:

Lululemon enjoyed poking fun with their mindfulness assistant – do you use a home assistant? Super funny.  Even the title was cheeky: Welcome Om.

Lush Cosmetics: Beer Bath Bomb

You've had a long day. It's time to crack open a cold Beer…Bath Bomb! Pop this into your bath and watch the water fizz away into a refreshing vegan stout. Don't forget your snacks! #AprilFools???
