Pranklopedia April Fools' Countdown: Prank #6

Don't Just Kick Me!

No one knows exactly when or how April Fools’ Day got started, but it goes back at least 250 years in France, England, and Scotland. The Scots were especially keen on the idea, and extended the celebration to two days. The second day was devoted to pranks involving people’s hindquarters, and some say it was the Scots who made the first Kick Me sign.

There’s nothing wrong with a good Kick Me sign, but if you’ve pulled that prank a few too many times, try taping one of these signs to your victim’s back instead.
