Spaghetti trees. Ha!

Everyone can tell you that spaghetti is grown on farms 10 miles long and 2 inches wide.

Other than being reminded of John Hockenberry after all these years of blissful nonremembrance, Thanks.

Barf.

I thought the "live speech from Saddam Hussein" today was pretty good. Fooled me for half a minute.

I think they left out the Sports Illustrated spoof about a person from the arctic who could throw a 200 mph fastball.

The Sidd Finch story was a classic, since it didn't just show up on April 1st. If I remember correctly, Sports Illustrated ran a series of articles about the mysterious pitching project throughout spring training, including a few ridiculous photos that were smuggled out of a Mets practice field -- they showed a young pitcher with a work boot on one foot, pitching off a mound somewhere in Florida.

The April 1998 issue of the New Mexicans for Science and Reason newsletter contained an article claiming that the Alabama state legislature had voted to change the value of the mathematical constant pi from 3.14159 to the 'Biblical value' of 3.0. Before long the article had made its way onto the internet, and then it rapidly made its way around the world, forwarded by people in their email. It only became apparent how far the article had spread when the Alabama legislature began receiving hundreds of calls from people protesting the legislation. The original article, which was intended as a parody of legislative attempts to circumscribe the teaching of evolution, was written by a physicist named Mark Boslough.

A better analogy would be to compare these types of legislative solutions to math to legislative solutions to the hardships of life which invoke socialism.

When will we ever learn?

There was a great TV commercial a few years back, showing the spaghetti harvest, complete with peasant-garbed field workers among the trees.

btw - a news blurb in our local paper claims:

"April Fools' Day started in France in 1564, the year that the first day of the year was changed from April 1 to Jan. 1. Those who insisted on celebrating the old New Year's Day became known as April fools, and others played tricks on them."

I remember #3, the story of Sid Finch. I got through the story when I received my SI in the mail and was discussing it with my dad. At the same time, we looked at each other and said, "Wait a minute, what's the date on the cover?" Sure enough...

I had a good one of my own this morning. I sent my wife (the 8th grade school teacher) an important looking email. Told her in bold print etc that we had just nuked Baghdad and the city of 5 million was virtually destroyed!!!!!. She emailed back a few minutes later in shock.. saying it's sad, but probably had to be done.. yada yada yada. Sent her one back that said April Fools. But before she received that one.. she told her whole class that we had just nuked Baghdad. I may be in trouble this evening. :)

I remember back during the internet stock heyday, CNBC had an April Fool's Day story about a new IPO for E-Meringue.com. Order a fresh meringue over the net - have it delivered to your door to be ready to plop on top of the pie of your choice.

Naturally, CNBC had lots of calls and emails enquiring how to get in on the IPO....

Opie & Anthony (recently of New York fame) were fired from a radio station in Boston a few years ago after they staged a dramatic "breaking news" story one April 1st about the untimely death of Boston mayor Thomas (Mumbles) Meninho in a car accident.

From what I heard, it was incredibly realistic and had people in tears all over Boston.

In 1982 the Daily Mail reported that a local manufacturer had sold 10,000 "rogue bras" that were causing a unique and unprecedented problem, not to the wearers but to the public at large. Apparently the support wire in these bras had been made out of a kind of copper originally designed for use in fire alarms. When this copper came into contact with nylon and body heat, it produced static electricity which, in turn, was interfering with local television and radio broadcasts. The chief engineer of British Telecom, upon reading the article, immediately ordered that all his female laboratory employees disclose what type of bra they were wearing.

A likely story.

I remember # 14 very clearly. No one I know fell--or jumped--for it.

The Phoenix New Times did a great one a few years ago with their "Arm The Homeless" foundation, giving guns to vagrants. The Brady-types went absolutely apesh***.

April 1st used to be like a holiday to me. I can look back now on some of my finer moments, in no particular order:

1994: While working at a pizza shop delivering pizza, the goofball, Eddie Munster looking manager ended up in my crosshairs. I removed the driver seat from his car and hid it in the supply shed. But because I'm a nice guy, I left two phone books in place of the seat for him to sit on.

1986: Smart-ass history teacher needed brought down a couple of pegs. There was one girl in our class who he loved to see laugh, because once she started, she had a hard time stopping...mildly amusing. Before class started, i went to his desk and suggested that if he wanted to get her laughing again, he should ask her how fast her grandmother runs. He waits until the last 10 minutes of class and then, matter of factly asks her that question. She stood up, called him a jerk and said that her grandmother was in a wheelchair then storms out of the room (we'd planned this out ahead of time). No one else in the room was in on it. The looks they gave him, as well as the look on his own face, were priceless.

1997: Filled a co-worker's car with styrofoam packing peanuts...filled it through the open sunroof.

1985: Shotgun shells...ashtrays...mother's chain-smoking boyfriend...do the math.
