April Fools Gag on Prison

A couple of my friends got together and made a sign to compliment the prison sign. It was up for about 15 minutes before a plain-clothes officer from the prison came over and told us, "We're no joke." I can't make this up. He then gave us ten minutes to take down the sign, otherwise, he would call the Coralville police and have us arrested. Needless to say, the sign was taken down but not after we had taken about 80 pictures!
