Greatest April Fool's Day Pranks

It being April Fool's Day, and spotting a couple of hoaxes in the paper on the way in to Sell! Towers this morning, we thought we'd try to find some really good April Fools pranks. This is our favourite so far: "In 1962 there was only one tv channel in Sweden, and it broadcast in black and white. The station's technical expert, Kjell Stensson, appeared on the news to announce that, thanks to a new technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over their tv screen. Stensson proceeded to demonstrate the process. Thousands of people were taken in." Excellent. Read the full description of the hoax in all its glory here. And see the top 100 April Fool's Day pranks here. Including the famous Swiss Spaghetti Harvest.
