  • 1.APRIL FOOLSAPRIL FOOLSTHE BESTTHE BEST (OR WORST) JOKESJOKES In 2000, a newspaper reported inmates from a prison in Romania were going to be released. Families travelled to the prison to meet their loved ones- to be told it was an April fools joke. On April 1st, 1915, during World War I, a French plane flew over a German camp and dropped what looked like a bomb. The German soldiers ran in all directions, yet there was no explosion. It was actually a football that read, April Fool! Tesco published an advert in The Sun, announcing the creation of a 'whistling carrot'- specially engineered to grow with airholes in their side. When fully cooked, these airholes caused the vegetable to whistle. Burger King published a full page advert in an April 1st edition of USA today announcing the release of a Left-Handed Whopper. The new burger included all the same ingredients as the original, but they had been rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of lefties. Thousands of people requested the new sandwich, and many others asked for the right handed version. Swedens most famous April fools occurred in 1962, when there was only black and white television. A news broadcast informed people that putting nylon stockings over their TV set would create an image in colour. Thousands of viewers later admitted they had fallen for the hoax. In 1957, the BBC news show Panorama reported that due to a mild winter, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. They had footage of farmers pulling strands of spaghetti off trees. Numerous people called the BBC asking how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. In 1977, The Guardian published a 7-page supplement devoted to a holiday destination, San Serriffe, a small republic of semi-colon shaped islands located in the Indian Ocean. The two main islands were named Upper Caisse and Lower Caisse. Its capital was Bodoni, and its leader General Pica. The Guardians phone rang all day with readers asking for more information on the idyllic holiday location- only a few noticed everything was named after printers terminology.
