RFCP Officers Play Epic April Fool’s Day Prank

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA-Several officers of the RFCP got together to pull off an epic April Fool’s day prank on both Commander Coolj and the soldiers! Read on for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how they managed to pull it off!

On Thursday, April 1, 2021, soldiers of the Recon Federation of Club Penguin (RFCP) awoke to find the server in absolute chaos. In an elaborate (and thoroughly planned-out) prank by several officers, the entire RFCP server had been turned into a “CowJ” barnyard!

How did the officers manage to pull off such a thorough and ridiculous prank? It all started with a group chat, created by Commissar Hamster, and a request that we “go big” with our prank.

Ideas started being tossed around about what exactly we could do to prank not only Commander CoolJ, but the entire army. Eventually, we decided on another CoolJ takeover, which he seemed to be expecting.

With someone expecting a prank, though, it doesn’t really become much of a surprise, so we added a twist! The new plan was that we would not only take over as CoolJ, we would also pay homage to his seemingly-permanent profile picture of a cow and do a “CowJ” takeover!

After our last CoolJ takeover got walked in on by CoolJ himself in the process of everything being changed, Gen. Anilia wasn’t taking ANY chances on the prank being ruined this time. She set up a time (3:00 a.m. EST) to begin making all of the changes, in order to prevent any mishaps.

While Commander CoolJ and the rest of the army slept, we set out to pull off the most elaborate prank in RFCP history. With a new role set to be given out that would change everyone’s rank color to match CoolJ’s, Gen. Anilia and myself set to work turning the server into complete chaos.

The next morning, it didn’t take long for people to discover exactly how deep the prank ran, as they noticed that the nicknames, channel names, and server icon had been taken over to fit the new barnyard theme. In a more complex addition to the prank, Col. MicroHam replaced every emoji in the server with new farm-themed emotes!

No emotes were harmed in the making of this prank.

In addition to the already detailed takeover, Col. Shy Guy had another idea that would put the April Fool’s Day prank over the top: a ping notification added on to the server icon!

I’ll admit, I unfortunately fell for it myself a couple of times.

Ultimately, everyone seemed to be completely surprised by the prank, and it definitely made for some laughs. Commander CoolJ even seemed to get in on the craziness and embraced his new role as “cowmander” of the “Recon Farm of Club Penguin”.

Hopefully things will be completely back to normal by this time tomorrow! After all, we can’t stay like this forever… can we?
