It's a rare feeling when you finally understand the hysteria people must have felt in the late 1930s as they listened to a supposed alien invasion taking place across the nation from the comfort of their own homes.
While it's no Orson Welles radio drama, the fear and mass distress expressed by many on social media when they learned that Trader Joe's would be closing all stores by 2017, might as well just be the equivalent of what listeners felt that fateful Halloween night.

The #TraderJoes April fools prank is the worst thing that's happened to me this year. And this is the year Trump is running for president.
