The Truth About Spaghetti

From the Ethicurean:

Over half a century ago on April 1, the BBC played a trick on a Britain still hungry from wartime rationing when its program “Panorama” featured a Swiss family carrying out their annual spaghetti harvest. Thousands were fooled, and some viewers were so intrigued they wanted to find out where they could purchase their very own spaghetti bush, the BBC reported.
