Fun Fact of the Day!
April Fools’ Day is next Tuesday (April 1).
*One of the largest pranks ever played in honor of the day was pulled off by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
In 1957, the BBC pulled a prank, known as the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest prank, where they broadcast a fake video of Swiss farmers picking freshly-grown spaghetti. They were quickly flooded with requests to purchase spaghetti plants, forcing them to declare the video as a prank on the news the next day.
