Most of the times we are glad that April Fool’s jokes are simply just that: jokes. Not in this case.
On The MRL Morning Show this morning, we talked about how the U.S. Open’s April Fools Day joke about the puppy ball people backfired because people ended up loving the idea. The same thing happened with Uber. One of my buddies, Tyler, loved the idea as well!
YOU DON'T JOKE ABOUT THIS. Damn it April Fools. Let's make this happen. Uber to Launch New Fleet of Cars Piloted by Specially-Trained Canine Drivers https://t.co/0SB4Er2INl— Tyler (@TylerJFrye) April 1, 2019
It seems like anything involving dogs, people love. Except for our prank that we tried to pull yesterday: setting up a Canine Cosmetic shop in Belmont, NC. Hey, we thought it was funny!
I did listen to it this morning, and it was just one of the funniest #AprilFoolsJokes ever!— LaMichael Mitchell (@RiskyBusinessLM) April 1, 2019
The same type of backfiring happened to McDonald’s with their prank! People were mad…but only because they wanted it to be real life! In Australia, the fast food chain shared an Instagram post boasting about their latest creation, the McPickle, featuring a countless number of pickles in place of the burger patty.

Pickle lovers, it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for. We’re super stoked to announce the launch of our brand new McPickle Burger. It’s time to tuck into juicy, flavoursome pickles layered between melted cheese, ketchup sauce and toasted sesame seed buns. It’s sure to be a treat for all your senses. #dailynuggets #mcpickle #pickleoverload #maccas #imlovinit
Once the joke was revealed, some people were disappointed!
Would you have ordered the McPickle if it were not a joke? Tweet us! @theMRLshow
