With the Upper Peninsula flanked by both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, most of us would take issue if people from another state wanted to rename one of the Great Lakes. However, a Facebook effort Wednesday was all about having Lake Michigan get a name change to be called Lake Wisconsin.

On Facebook, the Wisconsin organizers said they have Minnesota and the land of 10,000 lakes to the west, and since Wisconsin borders what’s called Lake Michigan, they wanted the name changed to Lake Wisconsin.

It sounded a little fishy to Local 3 News, and it turned out to be a cute – but very vocal – April Fool’s joke.
