Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time
good hoaxes...love the left-handed cheese burger! people are so dumb...
Kinda feel that it shows that people are willing to believe whatever they see in the newspapers.
Hilarious hsitory of April Fool's day.
From the page: #1: The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest
spaghetti harvest1957: The respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied, "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
As the saying goes you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. Still amazing what some folk will swallow.
Some pretty good hoaxes.
I love everything about April Fool's Day

I'd like to think that I'd be smart enough not to fall for these, but....
BBC has a sense of humor. Who knew.
The Taco Liberty Bell is by far my favorite one of these hoaxes. I even remember the outrage when it happened.
Very well done list of April Fool's hoaxes of all time... even before social networking!
