Just kidding!

I enjoy a good joke as much as the next guy, provided that the next guy isn't an undercover cop:
Police in Florida said an alleged drug dealer who fled with $525 from undercover agents claimed the incident was an April Fools' Day joke.

The Marion County High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area task force said undercover agents arranged through a confidential source to purchase 40 oxycodone pills from Sara Medeiros, 30, and they met with her Friday at an undisclosed location, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported Tuesday.

The task force said Medeiros told the agents she had to take the money to another location to get the drugs from a third-party dealer and she left the scene with $525. Agents said the woman never returned.

Medeiros was later located inside a vehicle in Ocala and she told officials during an interview she had taken the money, which was recovered, as an April Fools' joke.
Yeah. April Fools' jokes are normally wacky things that you play on people you know, don't involve you running off with several hundred dollars, and don't have a chance of backfiring on you in that you could end up either in prison or a shallow grave. Although I may just be a bit too timid with my April Fools' jokes.
