Did You Get April Fooled?

Yup, it's that time of year again. I didn't put up an April fool, because I think they're kind of mean, but I thought I'd share the little rhyme people in Finland use to mock those that get fooled.

                                          "Aprillia, syö silliä, juo kuravettä päälle!"

                  (Translation: April fools', eat herring, wash it down with muddy water.)

                                             Aaand, once more in Swedish:

                      "April, april, din dumma sill, jag kan lura dig vart jag vill!"

     (Translation: April Fools', April Fools', you stupid herring, I can lure you where I will.)

                                                Isn't tradition great?
