Have you ever played a good April Fool's joke on anyone? Years ago I was working in an office not far from a grocery store that had a good deli. The boss-lady, an elderly woman, usually wanted lunch from this deli. Almost every day, one of us would call over and get the menu and it usually ran something like this:

---------------------------------------
Meat Loaf
Broiled chicken

Rice
Yams
Early Peas
String Beans

Rolls or Cornbread

Banana Pudding
Peach Cobbler

---------------------------------------

One April Fool's Day, we decided to play a prank and made up our own menu, which if I remember correctly ran like this:

---------------------------------------
Yellow Fin Tuna
Filet Mignon
Veal Sicilia

Calabaza Squash
Bitter Melon
Hawaaian Sweet Potatoes
Garlic Whistles

Onion Bread
Creamed Cornbread

Creme Brulé
Terimasu

--------------------------------------

The poor woman almost jumped out of her skin with excitement. "Oh, they must have upgraded the deli!" She then picked up the phone and actually called the deli to inquire about how the yellow fin tuna was cooked.

This might be one of those "you had to be there" things, but it was funny at the time.

So what have you done to celebrate this important day?

I didn't do anything, but a friend of mine sent out an official looking email to his team stating that:

1. Team members are now expected to be in at 7:00am for a morning status

2. Team members will send in status reports twice a day instead of once a week.

3. There will be a COB (5:00pm) meeting to access how the project is doing.

10. April Fools!

He said most people didn't get past the first line before they came screaming to him ! :D
