This is funny for timing, if nothing else
One of my good friends is adopting a baby. Unlike most people's experiences with adoption, the whole thing is happening relatively quickly - she and her husband decided they wanted another child (this will be #4 for them), she started putting out feelers, and a friend-of-a-friend hooked them up with a lovely young woman who wants a local open adoption but isn't able to care for a baby herself. Total time between "let's think about adding to our family" and due date will be less than six months.
Anyway, now that everything is all but finalized, my friend decided to let the rest of her friends and family in on the news. She posted it on Facebook the evening of March 31st.
Anyone have a guess what happened? If you guessed "lots of people didn't see it until April Fools Day and thought it was a joke," you'd be right
And now she's got several assorted (not close) family members mad at her because she didn't explicitly call to tell them "THIS IS NOT A PRANK" when she made the announcement.
I suspect some of them still won't believe it until the baby gets here next month
