Happy April Fools' Day! 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 run off to pull a prank on one of 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 2010. Answering correctly could win you an autographed copy of Jim Cramer's latest book, Getting Back to Even.
