It turns out to a lot of local folks, pulling pranks is no joke.

We asked our readers to submit their favorite pranks for April Fools’ Day, and fools rushed in to share their top stunts and hoaxes. Suffice it to say, there are some dirty, rotten pranksters around town.

We voted, and have published three of our favorites here. These and all other submissions are posted on our Web site at islandpacket.com/aprilfools. Read them carefully to guard against becoming the victim of any practical jokes today.

And when you’re done reading, go out and try one of those new left-handed Whoppers. We hear they’re quite tasty.

Unable to gain acceptance at the snootier fraternities they pledge, the Deltas, a a motley crew of misfits and sociopaths bent on disrupting the well-starched status quo, engage in various illegalities that land them in hot water with both the stern college dean and the neighboring jock fraternity. Their exploits eventually cause them to be placed on "double-secret probation," until finally, they are kicked out of school and, as the dean reminds them, newly eligible for the Vietnam draft. Rated R N/A.
