-Miriam Callen

“When I was growing up in Indianapolis, we used to always listen to the radio while getting ready for school (hopeful that school had closed for snow). One April Fool’s Day, a local radio station reported that the Soldiers and Sailors Monument (center of downtown) had been sold to the island of Guam, which planned to paint it green in honor of Guam’s national vegetable, the asparagus.”
-Chris Johnson

“I have not ever done any pranks. I always think of great ones, but forget to get it together in time to pull it off!”
-Leah Ratliff
