I know, it wasn't April Fool's Day when I made this list. There's a good reason for that. I'm not making any of this up!
If one sees significant events like these as April Fools, then what would have happened to the world?!?!

The Top Ten

1 Holland was founded.

So... The whole country was a joke, then?!?! If the world's third largest exporter was a joke, that would have had some effect on the world economy! - PositronWildhawk

Netherlands aren't that big but economy is 10000 better than U.S. I live in U. S and Netherlands is way better - CityGuru

I guess the Japanese were completely wrong. - ethanmeinster

7 Hitler was jailed for his first attempt to overthrow the German government.

I think Germans take April Fools too seriously
