It seems to be the idea this year to release the April Fool's day jokes early, perhaps to give them more credibility, or maybe simply to join with the Australians.

I hadn't heard of the spaghetti tree joke before, but that is a pretty good one.  I showed Jonathan and Noah the picture, and they both said that couldn't happen, though Noah thought it was pretty funny.  Wikipedia also mentioned the left-handed whoppers and Taco Bell purchasing (and renaming) the Liberty Bell.

Perhaps Google's reason for releasing their joke early was due to the content of the joke. I thought the comment about it being old news was pretty good.

And famous people have it so rough.

For those of you with more time than I, you can read the top 100 jokes. I think its pretty funny when the TV and radio stations report stuff, and get more calls than for any of their regular news.

I just read about the spaghetti tree tonight.
That's funny.

No big jokes here this year. My son did the usual "there's something on your shirt" jokes though.

We were talking about old emails tonight, and I was looking through some old ones, and found the same link as above, so I guess my sense of humor hasn't changed. I forwarded the museumofhoaxes link to Heather and Linda on April 4th, 2003.
