List of April Fool's Jokes.

Today is the right day to visit Museum of Hoaxes's famous list of Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time .

At no. 1 is 1957 The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest, where BBC news show Panorama announced that very mild winter and elimination of the spaghetti weevil had created a bumper crop for Swiss spaghetti tree growers.

A huge number of viewers called in to ask how they can grow their own spaghetti tree - to which the BBC responded "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
