When I was a boy, I laughed when my parents would talk about their all-time favorite April Fool’s joke, the famous BBC "spaghetti harvest" TV spot, which fooled millions of viewers, a la "The War of the Worlds." Even their fading memories of the spot made them laugh. Well, here it is, from 1957, courtesy of Youtube. My favorite line is "the vast spaghetti plantations in the Po valley." Bon apetito!
