I don't have a link yet, but my cousin in Chicago who is in the know just emailed me about this, and he is a very reliable source. I also double checked with Fr. Athanasius of Chicago and he confirmed: this is real!

The people of Chicago are stupid, but they are not that stupid.

Besides, we have Rahm I to tell us Chicago values.

My son sent me a text saying to look out the window, my car had been stolen. I didnt understand what was going on.
I ran to the window but my care was still there. My heart was pounding.

Dude, if you're going to hit us with an April Fools joke, at least make it less obvious. Wink

I've seen Aprils fools jokes today about scent-based google searches, youtube being an 8 year long contest, Google maps showing you where buried treasure is, etc...

Most successful April Fool's was when my brother pretended to be ostensibly dead from a car / bike accident.

His commitment to lying in the cornfield in a position which truly looked utterly broken was laudable. As was the hysterical ranting and weeping of his best friend who delivered the "news" to my mother.

And people think I have a dark sense of humor . . .

It was.

She just didn't hear. She saw it.

He looked broken. I was always the family contortionist, but his body was uncanny.

Bike taken apart and its parts thrown about.

When my mother got within about 30 yards:
