While I am not obsessive about April Fools’ Day, I have been known to put flour in a roommates blow dryer and set my high school boyfriend’s alarm to 3:45 in the morning to mark the day. I know I posted about the funniest April Fool joke of all time by Gmail over in my sideblog, but I just saw a totally awesome April Fools’ joke go down on live TV and since it involved a friend, it had me laughing my ass off and I had to share.
Some of you know that I have a dear friend, Bryan who has a cooking show on a news station in Salt Lake. He is fabulous and I have known him forever.
We’ve cooked and shared many a meal and recipe idea together.
I’ve gone to see him in the studio to cook and had the camera turned on me (which I admit, I loved), and he’s been known to give me ridiculous shout outs (which again, I totally cop to loving) on the air.
I catch his show when I can. Today he was making a sour cream coffee cake. It is done on the noon news and so he cooks in little segments between news items and banters back and forth with the anchors in the studio.
Right before he unveiled the finished cake during his final segment, the anchors broke in and told him that they wouldn’t be able to finish his segment because he was being preempted by an exclusive interview they procured with Hannah Montana.
For about 2 seconds, Bryan looked really confused until they said “APRIL FOOLS’!”
Although it was admitted that his coffee cake WOULD have taken a back seat to an exclusive with Hannah Montana, it was seriously funny, and I’m glad that everyone there has a sense of humor.
So…Did anyone else have a practical joke played today? Did you pull anything yourself?? Have you done anything spectacular in the past on April 1st???
