April Foils! Two April Fools’ Day Pranks We’ve Busted

No flies on us.

Laura Holland

Ah, April Fools’ Day. When all the messers come out to play. 

Last year, RTÉ fooled the whole nation when they reported that the Spire would be moved for the 1916 Commemorations. So this year we’re keeping our eyes peeled for all the pranks that are inevitably going to be pulled today.

First up we spotted this fairly harmless article on Newstalk, that Mark Zuckerberg would be releasing his own collection for H&M.

Considering he mainly wears a plain t-shirt and jeans, we smelt a rat.

He’s quoted to have said, “I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”


Then over on Metro, they had a headline that announced a new all-male version of Loose Women, called… you can probably guess… Loose Men.

Starring Vernon Kay, Peter Andre, Mark Wright, Paul O’Grady, Richard Madeley and Peter Andre.
