April Fool's Day

Covering my ears, la, la, la, if I can't hear anything no one can pull a prank on me.  Ah, if only that were true.  Apparently the BBC is a legendary 04/01 prank-puller.  In 1957 they aired a recording of the spaghetti harvest in Switzerland. No, they actually showed footage of the  Swiss pasta-pickers gathering carbs.  Why Switzerland?  A Mystery. In 1965 they told the viewing public that Smell O'Vision broadcasting was on the way.  Was that a promise or a threat?  Just a joke!  In non-BBC related news, several wacky folks in Melbourne Australia put cling wrap around innocent people's cars in 2009.  Well, it was Australia.  Could have been worse.
Happy April Fool's Day!
