Sound Transit unveils a triple-decker bus, a University of Montana campus in Tacoma and fire fighters lobbing doughnut jokes at police.

It must be April Fools' Day.

Several agencies are showing off their Photoshop skills and using social media to have a little fun Sunday morning.

Sound Transit tweeted an image of a "triple-decker bus prototype to meet booming ridership demands while the light rail system is built out."

The University of Washington Tacoma tweeted a tall tale about how the University of Montana once planned to build a campus in Tacoma and UW planned to do the same in Billings, Montana.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Did you know that the University of Montana had plans to build a campus in Tacoma? Governments in Washington &amp; Montana approved the collaboration. As part of the deal <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/UW?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#UW</a> planned to open a campus in Billings. The agreement fell apart when both parties realized it made no sense. <a href="https://t.co/iYsSnvn2hx">pic.twitter.com/iYsSnvn2hx</a></p>&mdash; UW Tacoma (@uwtacoma) <a href="https://twitter.com/uwtacoma/status/980085023461195782?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 31, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Meanwhile, Pierce County Professional Firefighters and Lacey Fire are dipping into their well of police/pasteries jokes. Pierce County Firefighters used Photoshop to turn the wheels of a Pierce County Sheriff's deputy vehicle into, mmmm, doughnuts.
