In the Spring of 1965, the date is April 1st and children love to prank each other on that day. A crowd of teenagers named Paul, Bob, and William are pranking each other with April Fools pranks. During school, Paul went inside the principal’s office and got on the intercom. “Gooood Morning ladies and junkies, Today school has been canceled so get the F**k out of here!” said Paul in a funny voice. Bob, on the other hand, brought a bag of worms and went inside the kitchen and threw them on the spaghetti sauce. “Oh my god!” screamed a student. “I’ve been poisoned,” said another. “I’m going to die,” shouted a girl. The students in the cafeteria vomited, and it looked like somebody got chili sauce and spread it all over the tables and chairs. William did something that no one will ever forget. He brought a BB gun to school and a clown mask and pretended to be a robber. He went inside the office and took out the BB gun. “Put your hands up, I want all your candies and a buckle of bubble gum,” he shouted while giggling. Sadly, an armed security guard was standing by the administrative assistants desk on his break. He took out his firearm and shot William three times in the chest. April Fools was never the same for Paul and Bob. Pranks can sometimes lead you to your death.
