It must be a jungle out there.

Each year, the Key West Citizen prints an April Fool's Day Edition. It's insanely believable.

 The first year we lived here, I have to admit--I was completely duped. I read the paper on April 1st, and told Tom they were building a tunnel from Key West to Cuba and calling it the TUBA.  I also reported that the military had taken back the Truman Waterfront in order to construct a 5 star resort for the homeless, complete with 2 Olympic sized pools so the homeless could stay in shape.  I was totally sucked in...just too real! 

 Here are a few highlights from the 2018 edition (honestly, there are so many, it was hard to decide).

Almost everyone here has a MACHETE, so this article makes it seem too real. And since it's such a dog friendly island, you know  the dog is going to get the burnt roast in the end. Perfect.

William Hackley does love himself a good salt pond.  Could totally be true.

Or how about this ad?

Thank you Key West Citizen!  
I love the April Fool's Day edition and that is
