Ran the whole gamut, there. Neal is known for his creative April Fool's pranks.

Last year was the 'Women on Submarines' article, which got quoted in real papers and had navy types scratching their heads.

Anyone who wants to enjoy some the previous years scams:

SUBSIM APRIL FOOL '09
SUBSIM APRIL FOOL '08
SUBSIM APRIL FOOL '06
SUBSIM APRIL FOOL '05
SUBSIM APRIL FOOL '02

Many of them have multiple jokes planted in the article and sidebars.... for example, in the Navy Mans Subs with Wimmins article, some of the females quoted are named after members of the Salem witch trials...Sarah Bentworth, Katrina Van Tassel.


And then my favorite:

Related Searches
  • Submarines
  • Women
  • Disaster
  • Half-price at Macy's
