April Fool

It’s that time of year again, April 1st.

The greatest April Fools’ Day joke was the Swiss spaghetti harvest. In 1957, the BBC said Swiss farmers ere harvesting a huge spaghetti crop due to the near-elimination of the spaghetti weevil. Coverage showed peasants picking spaghetti from trees.

I believed this hoax. As a kid, what did I know?  And, if it were on television, it had to be true!  I’ve learned a lot since then.  But, I believed this story for years ….

What hoax’s are floating around in your law office on this day? How long have they been floating around? Do you want to perpetuate them, or clean them up and enhance the morale of your colleagues?  You do have the choice on how your firm operates, even in a depressed economy.
