DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s April 1st and that, of course, means pranksters will try out their best tricks on April Fool’s day and Michigan is no exception.

WWJ Newsradio 950’s Brian Larsen reports that the website “about.com” cites several famous Michigan “fools”.

In addition to the thousands likely taking place in schools and offices throughout the state there are some examples on a larger scale. 

Like in 1981, when a Roscommon newspaper announced that a couple of thousand fresh-water sharks would be released into the great lakes. People bought it.

In 1983, a Michigan paper said a chemical was found in the city’s water pipes. Turns out the chemical was H20.

There was another trick more recently in 2009, when a report indicated GM and Chrysler would have to drop out of NASCAR in order to get government loans.
