SpongeBob wakes up, and realizes that it is April Fools Day. He begins the day with playing a prank to his snail, Gary (who cries because he does not know it is April Fools Day and the joke involves killed mollusks (Crushed Clam shells)...which Gary is), then goes to work. Squidward, annoyed by the laughing, looks at the calendar. He is shocked and surprised that it is April Fools Day, and calls Mr. Krabs saying he is sick. Mr. Krabs says that there is some person in his office who wants to sell Squidward's art. Squidward immediately rushes to his office, only to find that it was a prank. Squidward resigns, but gets his job back after being persuaded by SpongeBob.
SpongeBob is then constantly doing pranks with his tongue, and his laughs really annoy Squidward. Therefore, Squidward does a prank on him. He gets a blob of mustard in the middle of a lasso. SpongeBob goes to clean it up, and the lasso closes on his leg. Squidward chops a nearby rope, which sends SpongeBob flying around getting seriously hurt. Squidward laughs hard out, while SpongeBob cries and runs away to his house. The customers aren't happy with Squidward around, so they leave, one of them yelling, "April Fools, JERK!". Squidward has to apologize, but he cannot say he is sorry. He thinks of other ways to apologize to SpongeBob, but all do not work until he decides to apologize after remembering what happened.
