A is for April Fools

Welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge.  I love doing this and look forward to April each year.  This year I've decided to do quotations--not about the usual subjects--love, wisdom, etc--but about more off-beat ones.  So A is for April Fools.
April 1.  This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.  ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson, 1894

April fool, n.  The March fool with another month added to his folly.  ~Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary

He who is born a fool is never cured.  ~Proverb
 If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings.  ~Welsh Proverb

I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it. ~Jack Handey

  The trouble with practical jokes is that very often they get elected.  ~Will Rogers

A man always blames the woman who fools him. In the same way he blames the door he walks into in the dark.  ~Henry Louis Mencken

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.  ~Douglas Adams

Skidmore College, a private liberal arts college in upstate New York, is offering a summer course on Miley Cyrus. Visiting assistant professor Carolyn Chernoff calls the course The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media and says she’ll focus on the 21-year-old performer and all her incarnations as a way to study such topics as gender, race, class, fame and power. She says she got the idea after teaching a course on youth culture that featured a video of Cyrus twerking at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. – AP
