Chris Capossela, head of Marketing at Microsoft, issued a memo warning employees not to indulge in the traditional April Fool’s pranks on Monday, explaining that this kind of very public practical jokes has very little positive impact on the company’s image, and that they can even trigger bad publicity: “I appreciate that people may have devoted time and resources to these activities, but I believe we have more to lose than gain by attempting to be funny on this one day.” Fun shall cease forthwith at Microsoft.

The Verge, “Microsoft leads the way in banning April Fools’ Day pranks.”
