I was just watching BBC World and delighting in the story of an April Fools’ Day hoax in 1957 about the spring spaghetti harvest, and thinking about finding the clip, when I opened a post from one of my favourite bloggers. Trust Frank, from A Frank Angle, to have already found it.
Please go to Frank’s post and enjoy this wonderful story. I’m sure it will make your April first.
Enjoy a plate of freshly picked spring spaghetti today.
I remember watching the ABC in Australia when I was about 13. The program informed us that gamma rays from our TV kept flies away. There was much family discussion about the scarcity of flies around our set.
