April Fool prank creates shock and awe shucks
So, I recevied word Thursday from a friend, who's also a California Highway Patrol officer, that the state is in such a financial pickle that it is going to merge the CHP with the Department of Fish and Game. He said the news would most likely be announced during the upcoming budget session and that the new agency would be called the Department of Fish and CHiPs. This was a April Fool joke, of course. I didn't fall for it because I had heard it before but I had my share of giggles recycling the joke on friends and family. Please, share your transportation-related April Fool's day jokes and pranks. You may see your story in an upcoming Street Smarts column.
