In the spirit of the day...

The War seems to have made people a little reticent about April Fools Day hoaxes. I haven't spotted any in The Independent, yet. But then, I've only read as far as page eight, and the war coverages goes on until page ten. Even I'd admit that putting a joke story in amongst that lot would be in poor taste.

So anyway, to lighten things up a little, here is someone's idea of the Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time.

I'm also rather fond of the MIT Hacks. (Not remotely computer related, by the way. This use of the word 'hack' predates anything computer related. The current meaning may be derived from the old practical-joke meaning, though.)

Update: One for the nerds - Whitespace. The best spoof language since Brainfuck. Perhaps even since Perl.
