Spaghetti-Harvest in Ticino (that fooled Britons), Southwoke, Australian "theybies," the new kinder and gentler army bootcamp & more April Fools Great Reset humor!
For this week’s Bread & Circuses roundup, yesterday was April Fool’s Day and nothing beats the BBC’s classic Spaghetti-Harvest in Ticino segment which fooled many Britons. Southwoke… Australia goes all in for “theybies” (gender neutral babies…), protesters and their spirit animals, guess who is the new brands ambasador for Bud Light (and who is celebrating 365 days of girlhood), more April Fools magic… And more Biden “senior” mements as we check in with Kamala in Africa… The new kinder and gentler army bootcamp (and the comments…).
And some final words summing up our Bread & Circuses world as the Great Reset continues!
BBC: Spaghetti-Harvest in Ticino
The best April Fools ever… (Wikipedia Entry):
The spaghetti tree hoax is a famous 3-minute hoax report broadcast on April Fools' Day 1957 by the BBC current affairs programme Panorama. It told a tale of a family in southern Switzerland harvesting spaghetti from the fictitious spaghetti tree, broadcast at a time when this Italian dish was not widely eaten in the UK and some Britons were unaware that spaghetti is a pasta made from wheat flour and water. Hundreds of viewers phoned into the BBC, either to say the story was not true, or wondering about it, with some even asking how to grow their own spaghetti trees. Decades later CNN called this broadcast "the biggest hoax that any reputable news establishment ever pulled."
