Strong man

Last year some people got quite excited after it was announced that Firebox was selling a fully-functioning Iron Man suit. You can imagine how unhappy they were when they found out that it was a big joke. It was April Fool’s Day!

‘April Fool’s Day’ is celebrated on 1 April every year. It’s a day when people play practical jokes on each other (but normally only until noon!). So watch out!

The BBC played a joke on its viewers many, many years ago. They showed Swiss farmers harvesting spaghetti from trees. You can watch the video here (link to YouTube).
