Ann Marie Guilmette, associate professor, Recreation and Leisure Studies was quoted in “Word of caution to April 1 pranksters” in the Welland Tribune on March 31. In the article, she said for April Fools pranks to be successful, they must meet three criteria:
- The prank must be between people who have a good relationship with each other;
- The prankster should not touch on any sensitive spots the prank’s victim has.
- The prank should be so outrageous that it couldn’t possibly be taken seriously.
