At ye olde Charleston City Paper, we see a lot of funny news, but rarely is it meant to be funny. (Often, we're the only ones who find it funny.) But on April Fools' Day, we are on the look out for any funny business or potential incidents of leg pulling. Here are some of our favorite news items, product launches, and straight up pranks that almost got us. (Get a gold star for guessing which ones got our arts editor, Connelly Hardaway.)
