Hey! It’s April Fool’s Day* today and I would love to read your stories and comments about what kind of jokes and pranks you did. You can send them in the page “Ask Us” and only I will be able to see them. I want to post some of them, so more people can see them. (only if you accept, of course). So what are you waiting for – tell us about your funny adventures today!
*April Fool’s Day is celebrated every year on 1 April by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes. The jokes and their victims are called April Fools.
Funny: As well as people playing pranks on one another on April Fools’ Day, elaborate practical jokes have appeared on radio and TV stations, newspapers, web sites, and have been performed by large corporations. In one famous prank from 1957, the BBC broadcast a film in their Panorama current affairs series purporting to show Swiss farmers picking freshly-grown spaghetti, in what they called the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest. The BBC were later flooded with requests to purchase a spaghetti plant, forcing them to declare the film a hoax on the news the next day.
