The love people have for SoCal's In-N-Out burgers is no joke, but the notion of the chain opening up a location right in the heart of New York City is. "Some sick bastard is toying with the bellies of burger lovers in Manhattan this morning by putting up signs at various shuttered storefronts announcing that beloved In-N-Out Burger will be opening soon," bemoaned Gothamist this morning. "Dare we dream?" they asked after hearing tell of signage going up and uniformed workers milling about.

All that California dreamin' has to do with the calendar, and a prank for College Humor. Yup. It's April Fool's Day. Who's up for a Double-Double and some Animal Fries in its honor? Sorry, NYC.
