I pulled off an April Fools joke today for the first time. Ever. In my entire life. And it was the best.
I gave a false phone message to my coworker from Don Key with the number to the Minnesota Zoo. He was so serious when he called, I damn near peed my pants I laughed so hard. And the lady at the zoo didn’t miss a beat. She tried to transfer him to the April Fools line, which apparently offers a discount for sponsoring an animal, but he ended up getting transferred back to her and she delivered the news that he’d been had. In the meantime, another coworker was running around trying to look up info for a job at the zoo from a prior year.
It was a success. I left the message for someone else too, but I don’t know what became of it. Only tomorrow will tell.
Thanks for the tip, TwiSarah!
