We Get the April Fools Pranks We Deserve

Our BFFs at Modern Reston worked overtime with the Photoshop to come up with this highly credible (and actually quite funny) announcement of a zany idea -- building a monorail to the new development around Lake Anne! Not that anyone has ever suggested something similar before, albeit with crappier Photoshop skillz, but let's all have a laugh at the absurdity of building thousands of new residences far away from existing mass transit. Um, April Fools?

So, what kinds of wacky pranks do we get in reality? This:



  1. Well sir there's nothin on earth like a genuine, bonafide, electrified six-car monorail!

    - Lyle Lanley

    1. Almost as 'hilarious' as the imaginary 7000 series Metro cars that were supposed to be here when the Metro Silver Line opened last year! (sigh) The End.

  2. Every self-respected wannabie big city needs to have an EL to shake things up every 5 minutes. I mean come on! Reston's too quiet, we need more noise!
