1 April 2013

A special April Fool's Day edition of The Daily Quota for today!

Everyone loves a good prank (except when it's directed at them). The origins of April Fool's Day remains quite a mystery, with some sources finding parallels back in the Roman period. The 'no jokes after midday' rule was only full embraced in the 1950's after some studies conducted on traditional English populations.

Today's Daily Quota, apropriately, is a list of the 'Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes' according to the Museum of Hoaxes website.

Read about such hoaxes as Taco Bell buying the Liberty Bell and enraging American patriots, the impersonation of Richard Nixon on public radio, a WW1 bomber's replacement of a bomb for a football, and my personal favourite - Burger King's left-handed Whopper.

Have a quick scroll (troll?), and pick out some of your favourites.
Claim them as your own, even!
