In my experience, April Fools jokes are usually flops. Dumb flops, hokey flops, jokes about the Metro agenda that make only wonks snicker.

But Cornelius Swart at the Portland Sentinel spotted this legitimately hilarious April Fools prank up in North Portland:

The jokesters slapped up fake signs on a couple other Portland roads, christening "Rowdy Piper Ave" and "Jamie Escalante Ave" (pictures below the cut). What's the pattern here, people?!
