Today is April Fools’ Day. Let’s have some fun. This link goes to a site that lists the 100 top April Fools’ Day hoaxes.  For example, this is the number one hoax, in their opinion:

April 1, 1957: The respected BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the virtual elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. It accompanied this announcement with footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied, “place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.” Even the director-general of the BBC later admitted that after seeing the show he checked in an encyclopedia to find out if that was how spaghetti actually grew (but the encyclopedia had no information on the topic). The broadcast remains, by far, the most popular and widely acclaimed April Fool’s Day hoax ever, making it an easy pick for number one.

Apparently it’s a monumental challenge for a particular type of woman to multitask by carrying around two phones. That sort of woman prefers “convenience,” she says. Other women, however, are perfectly capable of handling two phones as well as a newborn babe. (And they’re smart enough to know that you can have more than one email address per smart phone.)

Maybe THAT’S the type of woman we need as our first female president–an honest one, to boot!

We don’t need no stinkin’ obfuscating dingbat.
