Rage icon.png This is an April Fools' Day version of April Fools' Day. Please don't take it seriously. You can find the original here.
April Fools' Day (also known as All Fools' Day) is a cultural holiday celebrated on April 1st where people worship and praise fools. After gaining a lot of popularity in Vandealy, the holiday was moved over to the Scratch website to much praise from Scratchers (and some bribery from the Vandelay government).

Practices

It is common for Scratchers all across the website to flock to the user Fools and lay flowers at his feet. He is often praised as being the king of fools, and has been offered 300 pounds in fools' gold just for the account name. Negotiations have stalled with him though, since Fools has a chronic obsession with cake, meaning all he says is the word "cake". Take, for example, this interview with him:

Thank you for having this interview with us! How are you?

Notable Pranks

2012

  • On that day, the Scratch website was invaded by a bunch of dark Chaos, capturing and torturing every Scratcher. Everyone was forced to collaborate on an internet virus designed to destroy the entire internet, though the dark Chaos died when the sun came up. The cat, Kaj, claimed that it was one of his harmless pranks, and everyone laughed about their experiences. It is considered the best prank ever made.

2013

  • One day, on April 1st, Scratch Cat was hanging out with Gobo until evil bunch of fluffeh kittehs started to throw trillions pies at them, making Scratch Cat and Gobo run. The fluffy evil kittens claimed that they put a GPS on both Gobo and Scratch Cat that would produce energy units when Scratch Cat and Gobo ran. The faster they ran, the more energy units they would get. At midnight, however, Scratch Cat came to their houses and took all their pretzels. The evil fluffy kittens were so worried about starving to death so they told Scratch Cat and Gobo to return their food, because the GPS thing is just a prank. (who could trust an evil fluffy kitten, though?)

2014

  • On April 1st, 2014, Scratch Cat claimed that he was moving. He prepared a big party, and every single Scratcher came. Scratch Cat said Pico would take over until he came back. Everyone was very sad Scratch Cat left and wished he would stay. Scratch Cat said that he would no longer appear in the editor, and that he would not be in older projects featuring him. Scratch also claimed he would take his clones with him, in order to stop his 1.4 cousin from kidnapping them.[5]. After the party, Scratch Cat said it was an April Fools joke, and even Pico had to laugh. Then Scratch Cat said he wouldn't leave until 2019, and everyone stopped.

2015

  • On April 1st, 2015, a MBR virus is installed to every page[6]. It may not seem threatening, but if you were to reboot, you noticed your computer has booted to a screamer everytime you boot or it is replaced with this. [7] Using a Windows install disk will save your skins, sadly, but you will be forced to lose all of your data as the virus deleted them.

2016

  • In 2016, a man called Bob ate a fish. It turned out that it was a prank fish and was in fact made of blueberries. Unfortunately, Bob didn’t like blueberries then. He nearly went rolling down Gobo's Hill, sacked himself into Mr. Harley's Motorcycle Shop, then neatly cleaned himself and went to his home in the Middle of Nowhere. Nowadays he is seen fishing with is friend Bill in Lake Chlangamanngorotosreasopopoppoponongletowankandedududnumwamdeshonnonnononondohisrteaian.

2017

On April Fools Day that year, 4 "cats" joined the Scratch Team. After a Welcoming Ceremony, all ST members, including the new members went to a meeting to do with emailing viruses to Scratchers that make simple projects. Just before the meeting started, the new members revealed themselfs to be evil bunnehs. Just before Mres threw a toaster at them, the evil bunnehs exploded, starting a fire. All the ST members evacuated the building and everything but the energy unit stuff were burnt to a crisp. Just after the fire disappeared, the ST heard someone say "April Fools!" from somewhere distant.

After the ST's headquartes were rebuilt, the ST found that person who said "April Fools!" after the old ST building was burnt down and hit them with the banhammer.

2018

  • On that day, AgentPineapple replaced every user icon with something related to pizza. They also stole the entire world's food supply, so everyone had nothing to eat but the pizza icon. Everyone became so hungry that they actually ate their computer screens. Rumors say that everyone who ate their screens got computer flu (although many people said that those rumors were just big fat lies).
