What’s important is that you bring about laughter (and happiness) to those you come in contact with today. Tell a joke, act the fool, give them a Seed of Happiness…

"JAKE!!!"
“JAKE!!!”

…whatever it takes, successful participation in this day results in whole-hearted laughter! 🙂

April Fools, April Smiles!

“April 1.  This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.” –Mark Twain

Spaghetti really DOES grow on trees! :-O

April Fools’ pranks have been around for a very long time! Following is a CLASSIC April Fools’ joke played on TV viewers in England.

 

In 1957, a British news program managed to convince hundreds of people that spaghetti could grow on trees.

 

Oh yes they did…listen to THIS:                                                                                        Prior to April 1st, the BBC program,Panorama, went to Switzerland to film a segment about the great spaghetti harvest, which was made possible by the “virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil.” They placed cooked spaghetti on tree branches and filmed local girls “harvesting” the pasta.spaghetti

_40980449_spag238After airing the segment, the station was bombarded with phone calls asking how to grow a spaghetti tree.(?!?) Before the broadcast ended for the night, the anchors confessed to the prank. Genius!maxresdefaultMaybe it wasn’t on an international scale like the BBC, but have YOU ever pranked someone with a clever April Fool’s joke? Let us know!1441397_10151996968753641_1635680114_n
