Well then I feel great because I had a great April Fools day this time. Since we just had April Fools Day, and the requisite April Fools pranks, people wonder what some of the high profile ones that happened were, and there were some gems. The BBC produced a story that there were spaghetti trees in Switzerland, and many people went for it, and they also ran a documentary about flying penguins, starring Terry Jones, which should are a tip off. Then there was sports writer George Plimpton's article about Sydd Finch, an American baseball player that had been raised in China and threw a 168 mph fastball and was debuting as a rookie for the Mets.
