The 1st of April is approaching, just been reminded of it seeing another threadís title. I have to say I havenít actually done anything for a few years but it could be time to change that. Iím in Russia just now so Iím not sure if they ďcelebrateĒ it but Iíll find out shortly I guess.

The best one I can remember seeing was from the BBC many years ago (I didnít see it live!) showing the spaghetti crop in Italy. A reporter was in an orchard and all the trees had strands of spaghetti hanging from them and him saying how good a harvest it was going to be this year. Classic!

Russia does indeed take part. Previous Russian newspaper gags have included Pravda's report on a decision to build a competing Moscow metro (in the interests of Russia's new-found capitalism) and news agency Tass' hysterically funny statement that Russia's Parliament was thinking about reinstating the Warsaw Pact.
