For the morning announcements April fools joke, one of the announcements went like this:

"Attention all show choir members: there will be mandatory weight lifting today after school. You MUST attend if you wish to go to Florida on tour."

As Thurston and Lovey Howell once said about celebrating (another date actually), they said it was because it "only came once a year."

I was shocked by this.

A legitimate question that hasn't been discussed on BF yet!

I thought we covered everything.

Funny coincidence, I quit 12 years ago on April Fool's. Most of my friends/family thought it was a prank.
