Photos: Denver Cruisers' hilarious April Fools' theme schedule -- and the real thing
Each year around this time, the Denver Cruisers announce ride themes for the rest of the year. But yesterday's list was wacky even by the group's standards -- unless you were expecting a concept built around "Skid Marks & Seamen Stains."
April Fools! The Cruisers subsequently posted the actual theme list -- but we thought the joke one was too funny to forget. Look below to see our photo illustrations of the April Fools' version, as well as the real thing.
