‘Some April Fools’ jokes are so believable, they backfire slightly on themselves.

That could be said for this joke, which was so well done that people actually thought these pro-Trump greeting cards were on sale.

They were the brainchild of UK company thortful who enlisted the help of top Wisconsin-based graphic designer Todd Rumplan to produce them.

The genius cards included a mock-up of Trump peering over the Mexican border fence, an odd mash-up of Trump’s face mixed with an American eagle and some of his most famous ‘inspiring’ quotes.

They were so convincing, the company said they spent most of the day letting down customers wanting to snap them up.

Not even Todd Rumplan is real- his name is an anagram of the Presidential hopefuls.

A thortful insider said: “They spent much of the day replying to emails from customers who had not realised it was an April Fool!” ‘
