Spaghetti Tree Hoax

Happy April Fools’ Day, everyone!!

Remember Spaghetti Trees?!!

On April 1st, 1957, the BBC played a prank on its viewers by broadcasting the existence of a SPAGHETTI TREE!!

It showed a family in Switzerland purportedly harvesting spaghetti from a tree. The story goes: “At the time spaghetti was relatively little-known in the UK, so that many Britons were unaware that spaghetti is made from wheat flour and water; a number of viewers afterwards contacted the BBC for advice on growing their own spaghetti trees.” It was just a HOAX, of course!

Check out the video!!

    Happy April Fool’s Day to you too! I’m old enough to have seen the original BBC broadcast of the Spaghetti tree – an illustration of the fact that the Brits are all a bit crazy – it wasn’t only Monty Python.
