GOTCHA! Happy April Fools' Day!
Dear beloved OrangeObserver.com reader: Happy April Fools’ Day.
Make no mistake: The story you just read — Winter Garden bans bicyclists — is part of our company's annual April Fools' Day fun. It isn't true.
Our sister paper, the Longboat Observer, started this tradition nearly 20 years ago. Since then, the April Fools’ edition has become that paper’s most anticipated — and most popular — issue of the year. Here in West Orange, former owners George and Anne Bailey also had some April Fools’ Day fun throughout the years.
The reasoning is simple: Who couldn’t use a laugh now and then?
Although I may regret this in a few days, please shoot me an email — email@example.com — and let me know what you think. Better yet: Take this story and fool your family members and friends.
