First Lady Michelle Obama will be dropping in every day by helicopter for a gym requirement she never finished, according to the Whitney Young High School newspaper.

The article was written for the magnet school's April Fools' Day issue -- called "Bacon" instead of "Beacon" -- and went so far as to give the security detail-- two Secret Service agents would be with Mrs. Obama at all times. The first lady graduated from Whitney Young Magnet High School in 1981.

Also in the four-page April Fools' Day section was the announcement that impeached former governor Rod Blagojevich would be addressing the graduating class. Download the 3/30/11 issue of "Beacon" and "Bacon"
