a practical joke or prank, joking, jest, an act of mischief to trick someone for amusement, flippancy

Example

You’d think the fact that April Fool’s Day comes around once every year would mean people would be more clever about their pranks or japery. Yet, without fail, every single April 1st the same exact jokes are played out over and over again as if it’s the first time. There’s only so many times you can be tricked by the same pranks. (If you’re someone that falls for or uses the same tricks every single year, please pay attention.)
