April Fools Day

No, I haven't planned any jokes so don't worry! Personally, I don't enjoy the "jokes" on this day. It means that you have to be very careful about what you hear or read in the news today. For instance, The Guardian is running a story* which claims the newspaper will be published exclusively on Twitter. But it is a hoax and if today's date isn't a clue, here's another: the writer of the article is Rio Palof, which is an anagram of April Fool. *Twitter switch for Guardian, after 188 years of inkNewspaper to be available only on messaging service • Experts say any story can be told in 140 characters Have you spotted any others in the media today or heard something that sounded like it must be an April Fool's joke? What are your thoughts about April Fool's Day? Do you enjoy the "jokes" and/or planning to participate in any?

  1. I'm not keen on them so I haven't really been looking! I seem to recollect that there have been some good spoof adverts in the past but as I no longer buy a daily paper I don't know if there have been any today. xx

  2. We don't buy a daily newspaper anymore either. I read all my news online. I'm also not keen on the jokes so I wouldn't go looking for them but it's possible to stumble across them while reading the real news.
