This site lists the Top 100 April Fools Hoaxes of All Time. What is #1? The Swiss spaghetti harvest (“real, home-grown spaghetti”). The site has the actual BBC footage. Cool!

    Thanks for the link Gordon. My favorite is #7: The Alabama state legislature votes to change the value of the mathematical constant pi from 3.14159 to the “Biblical value” of 3.0.

    I like the April Fools jokes on the T&S site today. Nice work Kaimi (or whoever else is responsible for the upside-down logo). Fun stuff.

    Zoroastrianism eh?

    I too suspect that Kaimi was behind this April Fools Fun. I about fell out of my chair laughing when I saw the line through Most Popular Entries only to be replaced by “Entries About Abortion and Homosexuality”. Nice work!

    Yes, and it’s good to see somebody’s willing to refer to “By Common Consent” by the names “Zeezrom” and “Korihor,” even if that stick-in-the-mud Steve E. refuses to do so.

    Disgruntled,

    Aaron, aren’t those appellations inevitable? I figured labelling our site that way would just be redundant. I am grateful, however, that you air our dirty laundry in front of the whole world. Reminds me of the time mom & dad gave me “the talk” while friends of mine overheard in the next room.

    Steve, just in case you didn’t know: most of us have been listening in on your argument with Aaron all along.

  8. Steve Evans on April 1, 2004 at 8:41 pm

    Jim, so NOW you tell me?? You know, a little vote from you for Aaron’s suggestion would have made all the difference…

  9. Aaron Brown on April 1, 2004 at 9:05 pm

    Forget the “little vote” — how about some gushing in the comments sections from all the T&S regulars about how brilliant BCC’s posts are (mine particularly)!

    Aaron, you may be asking for too much.
