Mrs. Brown: What are you cooking?
Mrs. Jones: This is my secret recipe for the very best dinner in town.
Mrs. Brown: But it looks like you’re burning everything!
Mrs. Jones: Yes, I am. And when my husband comes home and sees this blackened mess, he’ll take me out to a fancy restaurant.
What fast-food chain placed full-page ads in six major U.S. newspapers announcing it had purchased the Liberty Bell to help cut the national debt?

Taco Bell, in 1996. Its ad said the national symbol would henceforth be known as the Taco Liberty Bell. At noon on the day the ad appeared, the company disclosed that it was just an April Fools’ Day joke.

Modern Family (2009–)

Writer-producers Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan were brainstorming new ideas in 2008 after the failure of their latest show, the comedy Back to You. None of their ideas were working, so they kept getting off topic, telling funny stories about their home lives—and realized that their own families were more entertaining than any of their show ideas. Lloyd and Levitan wrote My American Family, until Lloyd realized, “There is no single modern family that represents the American family.” So they created three families, all related: one nuclear family; one with an older divorcé, his younger wife, and his stepson; and a gay couple who adopt a baby. The premise: a mockumentary filmed by an unseen filmmaker. They renamed the series Modern Family. It was a breakout hit for ABC in 2009 and took home the Emmy for Best Comedy Series in its first two seasons.
April Fools! On April 1, 1997, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! hosts Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek switched shows
