That's just wrong.. Could be worse - imagine if the Fender Strat's selector switch moved to the Gibson position at the top.

And the Wikipedia one was awesome!

OK, this may not be from this year but this has to be one of the best ones EVER!!!!!


Still the most famous April Fool's hoax of all time was perpetuated by the BBC in 1957.

Documentary show 'Panorama' broadcasted a programme from the spaghetti fields of Switzerland.

Spaghetti was still regarded as an exotic foodstuff by Brits in the 50s so to discover it was harvested from trees wasn't that great a leap of imagination.

On radio earlier today, they said that Norway is about to get divided into four "Duke-reignments", where the dude that's married to our Princess (which has made his own collection of fine plates...) get the quarter of the country where I live... I was truthfully scared tongue.gif
