In the spirit of April Fools' Day, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas decided to play a trick on the "Fox and Friends" crew when he brandished a new "tattoo" of Winston Churchill on his arm.

"I was out in California a couple of weeks ago, and there was some street art that was a little unusual, and I gotta tell you, it inspired me," Cruz said Tuesday, after Fox and Friends host Steve Doocey said that he had heard rumors that the Texas Republican had recently gotten a tattoo.

At that point, Cruz lifted his shirt sleeve, unveiling what looked like Winston Churchill smoking a cigar.

"I'm proud to stand with Winston Churchill," he said.  "And I gotta say, my wife was fairly astonished."

After the Fox and Friends hosts questioned the Texas senator further about it, Cruz let them in on the joke.

"I will note that if you look at the calendar, it might suggest something about what you're saying, but I'll leave that to others to figure out," he said.

The "tattoo" was in reference to posters of a tattoo-covered Cruz that popped up around Los Angeles in March when he was there to speak for the Claremont Institute's annual Winston Churchill Dinner.
