I Got Had On April Fool’s Day–AT CHURCH!

A very enterprising family–the Kelly’s–spearheaded a pretty funny April Fool’s joke today. They stuffed the worship bulletins with instructions for the congregation to congratulate me for various faux-accomplishments throughout the day. So, during the morning and throughout our announcement time, I would be congratulated with statements like are pictured above.

I was actually upset that the one in the picture above wasn’t true.

They got me, and I thought they ought to get some credit for their entertaining April Fool’s joke.

Ed–the head of the Kelly clan–sent me the rest of them so I didn’t have to post pictures of them all:
