April fools stories.

Glad-wrap/cling-wrap whatever it is called, under the toilet seat, it is especially funny if they are male taking a piss or are reversing one out. The downside is it is pretty easy to detect.

Another one is to put salt in the sugar jar and suagr in the salt. Also if you are not Australian you may not get this one, but put milo in the coffee jar and vice versa.

From JV's Twitter today

After much thought and discussion with my family, I have decided to resign my role, and begin training for a return to professional cycling.

I am excited about my new role with Garmin-Transitions & feel that I will be a big asset to Contador in the mountains of the 2011 Tour.
Most ill-conceived ad campaign ever?

I swear to god I thought the banner ad at the top of the CN home page was an April Fools prank when I first saw it yesterday. April 1 is gone and it's still there inviting everyone to go to pearlonuranus.com. How can that not be a pornsite?
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."
