The limits of humour

In a world increasingly difficult to tell from a badly scripted satirical (or satyrical) play, April Fools' Day can be a bit of a trial.

Already we've had the "no, you fool, not even as a joke" post from Dizzy, a weak effort from the Register,  and, given it only comes round once a year, an entire 'blog' from a retired accountant (but, for verisimilitude, you'd have think he would have put some comments in.)

The BBC, who seem to have rested completely on their laurels since the famous "spaghetti tree" broadcast, can only manage this and this risible effort.

Although I got this from - unfortunately with a 1 year wait for delivery.  Edited to add - Hoverboards - but they've killed the link and replaced the picture.  :(
