March is coming to an end, which means it’s time to kick off April with one of the most lighthearted holidays around. The first day of April, also known as April Fools’ Day, is traditionally a time to play pranks and jokes on the unsuspecting, and this year’s celebration is no different. While everyone from your friends to corporations are hoping to get in on the trickery come April 1, these April Fools’ Day quotes and captions will help you bring all the pranks to Instagram.

Just like a good pun or joke can win plenty of likes on the ‘Gram, some April Fools’ quotes will definitely score plenty of laughs. This irreverent holiday is the perfect time to flex your comedy skills, and also see just how convincing you can be. You’ll be exposing your hoax on April 2, but on April 1, all bets are off. Of course, you could also poke fun at the whole premise of April Fools’ Day by sharing a completely ridiculous prank or statement that your followers would know better than to believe. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have plenty of fun getting into the spirit of the holiday and embracing a day that’s all about not taking things (or anything, really) too seriously.
