OK, it's April Fool's Day today (as if you didn't already know :lol: )

With that in mind let's list all the good jokes we find today and bring a smile to our faces :shock:

Hi

good idea
couldn't find owt on the BBC news this morning (means I probably missed it!!!) - unless of course the G20 is meant to be an april fool....

Always liked the spaghetti tree, the transient loss of gravity and the sheep loose in the railway station in birmingham......

DS2 announced he is going to phone his favourite pizza place tonight and ask if they do take aways - when they say yes, he will say "good can you help with my maths home work. What's 5 take away 3!".

OK - so maybe the laugh is on me since this person really does do this kind of research ( http://www.springerlink.com/content/ddy86j7bfk2tub1a/ ) - but it's certainly a daft day to report something like this!
:oops: :oops: :lol:

Such a shame, from years gone by:

Instant Color TV 1962: In 1962 there was only one tv channel in Sweden, and it broadcast in black and white. The station's technical expert, Kjell Stensson, appeared on the news to announce that, thanks to a new technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over their tv screen. Stensson proceeded to demonstrate the process. Thousands of people were taken in. Regular color broadcasts only commenced in Sweden on April 1, 1970.
