I was so excited to get my free paper this morning and start trawling through it for fake stories for April fools but was disappointed to see that they only had a page of stories which they challenged you to figure out which ones were real or not…what fun is that? I like the well written but total bullsh*t story that they usually write but don’t warn you about. Last year the bar was even raised and there was some fake ads…this year there was nothing! Knowing it was April fools did make me think twice about these ads/stories.
The non free papers did run some stories about edible newsprint ink (would have loved to have seen someone licking their paper on the tube to see if it was true) and ferrets helping to thread internet cable in the city, next year I guess I will have to fork out 40p for some good old fashion foolery.
