  • April 1 falls on a Sunday this year — Easter Sunday and in the middle of Passover, no less — so the #brands are getting their April Fools’ Day jokes in a little early. Arby’s and Warby Parker are cooking up a supposed partnership called WArby’s. “We may not have a whole lot in common, but that thin slice in the middle there — we’ll call it the ‘arby’ — was just enough to convince us to fully commit to a partnership with Arby’s,” Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal says in a faux announcement. “You can’t pass up a medium-rare opportunity like this, I guess.”
