Good April Fools Jokes
The film National Lampoon's Vacation includes a scene in which Chevy Chase ties a dog to the bumper of his car, then forgets the dog is there and drives away.
Inspired by this scene, Paul Goobie tied a dead chihuahua to the bumper of his co-worker's car.
His co-worker, Kevin Meloy, got in the car and drove off, unaware that the chihuahua was there.
Obviously passing motorists were horrified. But what made the situation even worse was that Meloy was deaf, so he couldn't hear the other motorists frantically honking at him.
Happily he drove on for miles until finally someone was able to get his attention. Police charged Goobie with unlawful disposal of a dead animal.
