Morning distraction

April Fool’s Day.
Good luck.

This is a good time to share what has long been considered one of the greatest April Fools jokes ever.

In 1957 the BBC ran a story on the coming of spring after a mild winter and what that meant for Swiss farmers.

The answer?
An unusually large spaghetti crop.

Huge numbers of not-so-smart viewers were taken in and called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree.

The reply, “place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.”
