Be an April Fool

My meta-analysis of April Fools' Day Facebook posts reveal the secluded and hidden desires we harbor.  April Fools functions as a "safe" way to made outlandish claims, unlikely realizations, and contrary observations.  I've had single friends claim to be getting married, Republicans claiming to love Obamacare, and vegetarians deciding to eat meat again.

For example, rather than being fooled into a "Rick Roll," at some point I realized that I really LIKE Rick Astley's hit single "Never Gonna Give You Up" and would never give him up. Try it!
