An April Fools’ Day Round-Up Of the Tricksy Hobbitses Who Tried to Pull One Over On Us



[View All on One Page]

Here at The Mary Sue a day of work involves hours of scanning our readers, which on April Fools’ Day equates to navigating a minefield of stories that may or may not be true. I feel like I’m in Inception—I need a totem or something to gauge what’s real.

Before I lose my grip on reality entirely, here are some of our favorite April Fools’ jokes that we’ve seen so far today.

    Yeah, DC Women Kicking Ass had a fake article announcing that DC was going to have Barbara date Bruce after the death of Damian. It was a little too close to what DC’s choices have been lately.
