In honor of the day, some great media hoaxes, from Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio broadcast to the BBC's "spaghetti harvest" spoof.
My family likes to pull fairly harmless practical jokes, like setting every clock in the house forward three hours while I'm sleeping, or taking the tea out of my favorite canister and replacing it with one of those coiled-up fake snakes. Actually I think they're trying to give me a heart attack, the monsters. Which is why tomorrow night for dinner we'll be having chef's salad sprinkled with toy spiders and flies.
What Fool's Day pranks are you planning to play?
