LA Weekly's April Fool's efforts include a feature on West Hollywood "banning flannel." Sample (faux) quote from a WeHo resident, "It's not that the residents of West Hollywood don't like the lumberjack look. We just like it better shirtless. Or with handcuffs." Their other joke story about a new NFL stadium to be built at the intersection of the 405 and the 10 is funnier. [LA Weekly]
