Police apprehend the joker. (via)

If you were grading April Fool's Day jokes on a scale of one to ten, with ten being #Bholing and a one being a punch to the balls, the gag that Angela Timmons pulled today would be disqualified for being not so much a joke and more of a potentially deadly situation involving students. That's because Timmons, who works at Virginia College, thought today would be the perfect day to text her daughter to say shots had been fired at the school. Get it? Neither did the police after Timmons' daughter called 911 when she couldn't get a response from her mother.
