We all get excited for April Fools' Day, the time for wit, good humour and indulging your inner child.

But then stuff like this happens.

This year is no better. You're in for a depressing ride of misguided humour, people taking it a little too far and overwhelming evidence that humanity should just shut up sometimes.

1. Some jokes go too far...

2. This is just annoying.

3. Please don't do this.

4. Or this.

5. Did you click? We clicked.

6. Mum, I'm home! Oh wait.

7. This is just cruel.

8. And they say kids are mean?

9. Burger King is making us all sad.

It's not funny when we wish it was true.
