I love April Fools Day. Over the years, I've witnessed some great gags. When I lived in Colton, Washington, I had two neighbors--Leroy and Trudy. Leroy was a retired farmer, and Trudy was his sweet wife. One April Fools Day, we woke up and saw that the entrance to their house was surrounded in crime-scene tape. On their front porch was the outline of a body. Everyone in town driving by stopped to see what was was going on and if Leroy and Trudy were okay! It turned out to be a prank perpetrated by Leroy's son. The town sheriff contributed the crime-scene tape, and he got in trouble from the local dignitaries for participating in this April Fools prank.
