April Fool’s

I actually saw it!  It was shown on NBC television. I was young (not THAT young) and actually believed it for several years.

The BBC reported on April 1, 1957 that Swiss farmers were harvesting a huge spaghetti crop due to the near-elimination of the spaghetti weevil. Coverage showed peasants picking spaghetti from trees!

This was confirmed by USA Today on April 1, 1995.
