April Fools

The concept of the fool is one rich in linguistic and mythological significance. Think of the many phrases and idioms we use that pertain to foolishness:
fool around
nobody’s fool
There’s no fool like an old fool
fool’s errand
fool’s paradise
tomfoolery
make a fool of…

“A fool is not someone without intelligence, but a person who behaves without wisdom.”  I guess it is true then. Everybody plays the fool sometimes.
