Mayor Steve Adler tweets Austin jokes for April Fool’s Day

Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler has a bit of a silly sense of humor and April Fool’s Day 2017 was just another day for it to shine.

This is the guy who once went on a Twitter rant, complete with “Star Wars” references, regarding traffic in Austin.

So the mayor had no problem drawing from some of the city’s biggest headaches and head scratchers. He started his joke “tweetstorm” with the massive new central library (which is currently delayed from opening, again).

Mispronouncing street names was “against the law” briefly (side note: Man-cha-ca has always been super easy to say).

He even found a new way to generate income for the city…

… along with proposing a handy way for the city’s bridge-dwelling bats to find their way home.

Adler “announced” a local initiative in response to the state’s controversial transgender bathroom bill.

Could you imagine “The Real World: Austin” part two? Adler suggested the city council as the cast of the next Austin-based reality show in (what else) a short-term rental.

Don’t think Adler forgot about two of the city’s favorite topics: Willie Nelson and ride-hailing companies. Nelson does have a hookup with special “snacks.”

We see what you did there mayor. Happy April Fool’s Day Austin!
