April Fool’s Day!

Years ago, as a youth, I saw a program on television. That program convinced me that spaghetti grows on trees!

Literally, years later I learned how spaghetti is made and I remembered the television program only as a memory, coming to believe that I must have dreamed this …

On April 1, 2005, USA Today ran a “Snapshot” that highlighted the top three April Fools’ Day jokes. The Number 1 joke: “1. Swiss spaghetti harvest: In 1957, the BBC said Swiss farmers were harvesting a huge spaghetti crop due to the near-elimination of the spaghetti weevil. Coverage showed peasants picking spaghetti from trees.”

It is nice to learn that I wasn’t dreaming!
