The Salt Lake Tribune – Utah’s April Fools’ Day pranks have the Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell enlisting in the National Guard and elephants playing with Utah Symphony
Utah organizations aren’t immune from the lure of April Fools’ Day jokes, posting what can literally be called “fake news.”
The Utah Army National Guard took to Twitter first thing Monday morning with an announcement that Donovan Mitchell, the star shooting guard for the Utah Jazz, was going to enlist in the Guard.
The Guard’s Twitter thread said Mitchell “will be enlisting as a cannon crewmember (MOS 13B) for his love of teamwork and shooting.” The tweet ended with the hashtag #AprilFools.
The Utah Symphony took advantage of the day to announce a collaboration with Utah’s Hogle Zoo and Tracy Aviary to bring animals — from cockatoos to elephants — onto the Abravanel Hall stage to perform classical music.
