Being in radio, I've witnessed a number of attempts at broadcast April Fools day jokes. Most of the time, although some folks fell for them, I thought the jokes themselves were fairly lame.

None certainly compares with what I, and many others, consider to be the greatest broadcast April fools day joke of all time - The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest.

It was done in 1957 (the year I was born, but we needn't dwell on that coincidence) by the BBC.

If you have Real Player on your computer you can actually watch the broadcast via this site.

P.S. Happy Birthday Lisa Davis! You've been a major blessing to your sister and to me...and that's no joke!
