Get this woman -- and the whole town -- a reality show STAT! Susan Tammy Hudson likes to pull practical jokes, and April Fools' Day is her favorite holiday. But this year the joke backfired on her big time and she almost ended up dead or in the clink. Susan, who lives in Tennessee, called her sister on April 1st and confessed something horrible. She had killed her husband. Things only get funnier (weirder) from there.

Susan relays that she told her sister, Helen, "I shot my husband, I'm cleaning up the mess, let's go bury him in Blackwater."

So much for family loyalty. Susan had barely hung up the phone when word got out about her "murder" and cops swarmed her house with guns drawn. "The response was excellent," Susan deadpans.

She was placed under arrest but let go once her bewildered husband arrived home -- alive.

April Fools' jokes can have a way of backfiring -- like the teen girl who told her boyfriend she was pregnant and ended up stabbing him when she didn't like his reaction.

But Susan and her husband took the backfiring joke in stride. She even seems to forgiven her sister for turning her in so quickly. Seriously, this is a sister you do not want to share your deep, dark secrets with. It all could have ended up terribly -- if Susan had made one wrong move, who knows what could have happened with a bunch of guns in her face?

But somehow you feel the family will get through it all just fine and have something to chuckle about for a long time to come. Don't you just want to have a drink with them and hear them tell the April Fools' fail tale one more time?
