Ah I hope youve enjoyed your morning of fun filled frolics. Yes, April Fools Day has been and gone if you subscribe to the bizarre theory that you cant do it after midday. What amusing japes did you pull on unsuspecting friends and co-workers? In our office we told someone they had missed a call from someone called Liz and gave them the number for Buckingham Palace hilarity ensued.
The British Press, absolutely April Fools Day as it gives them ample opportunity to print made-up, frivolous nonsense about inane subjects ahem
The BBC did a classic with a video about flying penguins and it does look pretty good when they first take off
The Metro (free paper) went with a car that electrocutes dogs that wee against it
The Guardian did a piece of the British government hiring the delectable Carla Bruni becoming paid to raise Britains profile
But fair play to the Beeb who also published a list of nine other stories that came out today that would easily make April Fools pranks but are in fact true.
