April Fools Day  

April Fools Day

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, well, it must be April Fools" Day! Although no one is quite sure of the origins of this day, it has been celebrated for centuries in many different countries. Humor really does transcend borders! Over the years, there have been some truly memorable April Fools" Day jokes: in 1957, a BBC program convinced its viewers that spaghetti was harvested from trees, while in 1985, Sports Illustrated readers were amazed to read about a pitcher who could throw a ball at 168 miles per hour.
