Muslims warn against April Fools Day

Firas Press publishes a long missive detailing the history of April Fools pranks, and concluding that it is a major Islamic sin to act like the non-Muslims in this day dedicated to "lying."

It warns Muslims not to imitate the infidels who celebrate April Fools Day. It quotes Mohammed as being against jokes, saying "Woe for the one who talks to make people laugh and tells lies, woe to him, woe to him."

It would be funnier if I was making this up, but I'm not.
