An association between April 1 and foolishness is first mentioned in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (1392).

The “Whelksman’s Tale”, featuring La Havre harbor in Normandy, France, tells of a sea snail harvester who gets tricked by a local rival fisherman into amorously pursuing a beached dolphin as a mate, as he is led to believe it’s a live, singing mermaid.

The rival, in possession of a prodigiously broad vocal range, lures the poor whelksman with his siren song, and satirical philosophical discourse into, ultimately, professing his love for the dolphin aloud during a local townhall; he is then driven out of his home and business by his fellow townsfolk for this perversion.

The footnote here being the man returns to town and massacres (most of Chaucer is either macabre or ribald) his naysayers with “speares ayn harpoon festooned ay crowne o'shelle” [literally a harpoon with a conch shell tip] on April 1st, thus giving rise to two things we continue to this day: playing tricks on people and the naming of munitions casing as… shells.
