Have you heard about The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest! “For those who love this dish, there’s nothing like real, home grown spaghetti”
Have you heard of Burger King’s left handed whooper and IKEA’s high chair for dogs? Have you heard of flying Penguins?
Crazy isn’t it! In 1957, BBC played one of the best television hoax ever. It was a three-minute Panorama report that claimed that there is spaghetti harvest in Switzerland. Yes, it was a pasta joke. It fooled millions of people including BBC General Director Sir Ian Jacob who researched the topic in three different books to confirm that it wasn’t true. With this broadcast, BBC earned a special place on April Fools’ Day. Now, the competition to produce the best April Fools’ Day hoax is fierce. Nevertheless, this day is a celebration of practical jokes and humor. I have compiled a crazy list of funny quotes to bring back humor in our life. While you read these quotes, you will find videos of some of the best April Fools’ Day hoax ever!
