The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest

If you were a fly on the wall when I saw this the first time, you would have appreciated my facial response. This 1957 April Fool’s Day prank from British television programme Panorama, broadcast a 3 minute segment about the fabulous Swiss Spaghetti harvest. The success of the crop was attributed both to an unusually mild winter and to the virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil. What I found so amusing is that even back in 1957, with such a serious tone and accent, they were some funny buggers weren’t they!
