We’re getting a jump on April Fools’ Day and getting in the silly spirit early. Thankfully there’s no bogus corporate announcement here, like pretending to launch a fake monthly hat subscription box service for babies – aptly named BaeHatz – or somehow mocking left-handed people by imagining a new left-handed hat style – which doesn’t even make sense, but remember the left-handed Whopper Burger King tried to sucker us with?
