Scientifically speaking, April Fools' Day is the worst day of the year. And as consumers we have only two options to survive the horror that is brands flogging the dead horse known as April Fools' Day. The first is to humour them by politely chuckling at their whipping of the stallion's corpse.

A list of fun facts about the year 1915 in America has gone viral. But many items on the list are false or misleading. As we've seen time and again, never trust the internet for your fun facts. It's all lies.
