Today is April Fool's Day, and many local business took to their Facebook pages to play a few pranks, and There are some pretty good ones too. In fact, there were a few so good, many people around Acadiana fell for them hook, line, and sinker.

If I had to pick the number one local April Fool's Day prank that seemed to dupe the most people, it would be Developing Lafayette's Dave & Buster's home run. I witnessed many on-line conversations gushing over the news that "we were finally getting one". There were even people talking about it in our building.

Good one Developing Lafayette.

There were several other good ones from Lafayette Comedy, Abita, Zapp's and more.
Even the Lafayette Sheriff's Department got in on the action!

Now, clearly some of them weren't fooling many people, but they sure are funny.
