Nope, That Happened: April Fools-Worthy Headlines

Did BET's president really host an event to improve the image of Black women?


Over on NewsOne, there's a nice collection of headlines that really should be April Fools punchlines but are, alas, stories that came across the news cycle.

Our personal favorites:


"Black Singer Calls Rush Limbaugh His Hero"

"Colonel Sanders Bypasses Security, Enters United Nations"

"Man Charged $23 Quadrillion for Cigarettes"
