Real True News


The April Fools' joke about the Swiss spaghetti tress was first made by BBC in England in 1957. Afterwards they got calls from people asking for advise on how to grow such a tree.

It was later "borrowed" by Danish news. Afterwards they started getting calls from annoyed wives who knew spaghetti was made from flour because it said so on the packaging, but their husbands wouldn't believe them because why would the news lie?

The most well-known Norwegian april fools was when NRK (norwegian news channel) reported that the wine monopoly would give out free wine to anyone that met up with their own way of storing the wine. People met up with buckets, bottles and even whole wheelbarrows.

The cooles April-Fools-Joke i can remember, was some 20 years ago, when our local newspaper 'reported', that the police will not only use dogs, but also cougars for police-service, because cats can chase criminals on trees, a feature dogs can't... ;-)
There was even a picture of a policeman with a cougar on a leash... ;-)
In fact this cougar was the watchdog, i mean watchcat, on a junkyard.
Since guarded by the cat nobody broke in... I wonder why...? :D
