We take April Fool’s very seriously / not seriously at OnMilwaukee (ahem). If you, too, wanna get in on the foolery this weekend, be sure to check OnMilwaukee on Saturday.

You might also consider visiting one of these joke shops so your friends and family can Whoopie cushion their way into the new month. Take "pull my finger" to the next level with one of these joke shops:

Art Smarts Dart Mart
1695 N. Humboldt Ave., (414) 273-DART 

This quirky corner shop offers a great selection of squirting flowers, invisible ink, garlic candies, clacking teeth, Amish punching puppets, stuffed armadillos, toilet seat key chains, fake old food and a bevy of other tricks and trinkets that would've gotten you kicked right out of the sixth grade.

Jest For Fun Joke Shop
256 W. Main St., Waukesha, (262) 544-5678

Old timey joke shop with everything needed to pull pranks and annoy your loved ones and coworkers. Fake food, fake poop, trick golfballs, squirt nickels and rings, shock pens – it’s all for sale in this classic joke shop boasting “good clean fun.”

Various locations

Spencer’s shops are located at Mayfair Mall, Brookfield Square Mall and Southridge Mall. They also have an online shop. Check the “Gags & Pranks” section for fake positive pregnancy tests, fart spray and a plethora of R-rated baubles.
