Best April Fools Day Prank Ever Ruled "The Spaghetti Tree"!

by Susan Kennedy

So simple, yet so perfect for the time. This segment was run on April Fools Day back in 1957 and got HUGE reaction from people who wanted to plant their very own spaghetti tree! BBC got together, planned out this prank and even got a distinguished narrator to make it seem as authentic as possible. Without the internet or other sources to tell them it wasn't real alot of people believed it for years. It just goes to show how 60 years can change things!
