Well, waiting for this year's thread which should be out later (assuming Zantai isn't going to fool us all and not post one this year), but here's last year's. Might give you a laugh.

Re: Happy April fools day

My kids were caught out this morning by their teachers, who sent them a choice of school uniform which will be obligatory from when they return to school..

They had to make a choice from a few options, clearly from the 70's .. They were not amused..

Re: Happy April fools day

The famous BBC one is of course the Spaghetti Harvest. But my favourite is from 1984 - The Lirpa Loof with David Bellamy, the first one at London Zoo (scroll down on this page).
