TV News Falls for April Fools Funeral Prank!

Every year the Improv Everywhere crew executes some prank to make fools of us all on this day, but the one they put together this year at Greenwood Cemetery serves as an example of an April Fools' Day joke done well (because so often these things go horribly wrong). They announce: "For our latest mission, 30 Improv Everywhere agents found a random funeral in the obituary section of the newspaper and turned it into the best funeral ever. We picked a man who had very few surviving relatives and then showed up to his funeral to make it truly awesome."

The Ghosts of Pasha have returned! They might have had us were it not April 1st.

Update: Looks like the team at Channel 11 didn't get the joke:

For those who still don't get that it was an April Fools' joke, Charlie Todd, who heads up the improv group, Twittered: "hahahahaha CW 11 in NY just covered the funeral prank as a REAL news story!"
