Are you ready for some foolishness? Wednesday is April Fools' Day, and we asked some residents how they feel about the jokes and hoaxes that go on each year on this day.

Azzo Rezori of CBC's Here & Now took to the streets of St. John's to find out.

Have you ever been an April Fool? What is the most memorable prank you have played on a loved one or friend?
