NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Happy April Fools' Weekend! We here at The Five Dumbest Lab love April Fools' Day. In fact, it's our favorite holiday because nobody likes to celebrate foolish behavior more than we do.

But before we begin pranking our friends on Wall Street, we leave you with The Five Dumbest Things April Fools Quiz, recapping the silly shenanigans of the first quarter of 2013. Answering correctly could win you a gift package full of autographed Jim Cramer goodies.

Enter by midnight Tuesday, April 2, by e-mailing your answers here with the words "Contest Entry" in the subject line. We'll post the answers and announce the name of the winner in next Friday's column. If there is more than one correct entry, we'll have a drawing.
