A Lesson in History

Recommended Posts

In English, we say "April Fools". In French, we say "Poisson d'Avril", which literally translates to "Fish of April". You see, the reason why they use "Fish of April" is because in the 1400s, a new species of fish was discovered in France.
 

The fish was named Mokus Foscus, for its tendency to mock other animals and people as well. Though, as petty we humans are, some of us started murdering these innocent fish for being themselves. Eventually, it seemed that enough of the Mokus Foscus have been wiped out for reduce their mockery; however, like the saying "there's plenty of fish in the sea", it was found that there was even more Mokus Foscus in the oceans and rivers than we thought.

 

To prevent senseless slaughter of the Mokus Foscus, future kingdoms and governments had to implement laws to protect them. This, however, was especially difficult for leaders who were very much anti-satire. These laws came into effect in April of 1951, thus earning the fish the name "Fish of April".
