Here’s a funny look at racism, a young black boy goes to purchase something from the store and asks for change which starts bickering between the two. The funny part is how such a young kid could get someone who’s supposed to be responsible to act in such a way…

IT’S no joke that we have all fallen for some pretty stupid jokes over the years.

From the turn of the century, wise-guys have been making up stories that have spread quicker than butter on a hot cross bun – and all in aid of April Fool’s Day.

To celebrate April Fool’s Day, we’ve collected our ten favourite hoaxes.

1) The Swiss Spaghetti Harvest


In 1957 BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a very mild winter and the elimination of the spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop.

Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree.

The pranksters suggested putting a strip of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hoping for the best.

2) Instant colour TV


This might not sound that strange, as you flick your Sky remote to countless channels in full colour.

But back in Sweden 1962, there was only one channel – broadcast in black and white.

But things were set to change! The station’s technical expert, Kjell Stensson, appeared on the news to announce that, thanks to a new technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to display colour reception.

All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over their TV screen. Viewers jumped to test the theory… and were left red-faced.

3) Planetary alignment decreases gravity


THE words mind over matter have never rang so true after this April Fool’s farce.

In 1976, astronomer Patrick Moore announced on BBC Radio 2 that a once-in-a-lifetime astronomical event was going to occur.

The planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, lessening the Earth’s own gravity.

Moore told his listeners that if they jumped in the air at the exact moment that this planetary alignment occurred, they would experience a strange floating sensation.

By mid morning, BBC2 received hundreds of phone calls from listeners claiming to have felt it.

One woman even reported that she and her eleven friends had risen from their chairs and floated around the room.

4) Virgin aliens land


WHO would have thought London would be the place aliens land first?

On March 31 1989, thousands of motorists driving on the highway outside London looked up in the air to see a flying saucer descending on to a field.

The police arrived at the scene and one brave officer approached the craft with his truncheon in hand.

When a door in the craft popped open and a small, silver-suited figure emerged, the policeman ran in the opposite direction – from Sir Richard Branson.

The saucer was actually a hot-air balloon that had been specially built by the tycoon to look like a UFO.

His plan was to land the craft in London’s Hyde Park on April 1st, but the wind blew him off course and he was forced to land a day early in the wrong location.

5) Flying penguins


A few years ago in 2008, the BBC made an amazing wildlife discovery – penguins could FLY!

They announced that camera crews filming near the Antarctic for its natural history series Miracles of Evolution had captured footage of Adélie penguins.

It even offered a video clip of these flying penguins, which became one of the most viewed videos on the internet.

Presenter Terry Jones explained that, instead of huddling together to endure the Antarctic winter, these penguins took to the air and flew thousands of miles to the rainforests of South America where they “spend the winter basking in the tropical sun.”

6) Bra-vellous hoax


IN 1982, a newspaper reported that a local manufacturer had sold 10,000 “rogue bras” that were causing sparks to fly.

The ‘sparks’ were not hypothetical thanks to the raunchy appearance of the underwear, no – they were real electric sparks.

They suggested the support wire in these bras had been made out of a kind of copper originally designed for use in fire alarms.

When this copper came into contact with nylon and body heat, it produced static electricity which interfered with local television and radio broadcasts.

The chief engineer of British Telecom, upon reading the article, immediately ordered that all his female laboratory employees disclose what type of bra they were wearing.

7) The dogs are all white


In 1965, a Copenhagen newspaper reported that the Danish parliament had passed a new law requiring all dogs to be painted white.

The purpose of this, it explained, was to increase road safety by allowing dogs to be seen more easily at night.

8) Apocalypse now?


The world ending? In 1940, it almost did…

The Franklin Institute issued a press release stating that the world would end the next day.

The release was picked up by a radio station which broadcast the following message:

“Your worst fears that the world will end are confirmed by astronomers of Franklin Institute, Philadelphia. Scientists predict that the world will end at 3pm tomorrow.

“This is no April Fool joke. Confirmation can be obtained from Wagner Schlesinger, director of the Fels Planetarium of this city.”

Local authorities were flooded with frantic phone calls. The panic only subsided after the Franklin Institute assured people that it had made no such prediction.

The prankster responsible for the press release turned out to be William Castellini – the Institute’s press agent.

He had intended to use the fake release to publicise a lecture at the institute on April 1 entitled “How Will the World End?”

9) Life discovered on Jupiter


IN the good old days of 1996, AOL subscribers got more than they bargained for from April 1 online news updates.

Those who logged onto the service were greeted by a news flash announcing that a “Government source reveals signs of life on Jupiter.”

The claim was backed up by planetary biologist Ted Leonsis, AOL’s president.

The story quickly generated over 1,300 messages on AOL. A spokesman for the company later explained that the hoax had been intended as a tribute to Orson Welles’s 1938 Halloween broadcast of the War of the Worlds.

10) Smellovision


BECAUSE it was in 1965, when TV was a new-fangled device, we can forgive people for believing in Smellovision.

A professor told the BBC how this miraculous technology allowed viewers to smell the aromas produced in the television studio in their own home.

The professor offered a demonstration by cutting some onions and brewing coffee.

A number of viewers called in to say they could smell it through the TV sets.

IT TAKES a lot to get teenagers’ minds off sex at the best of times – and in the bedroom it’s next to impossible. So it’s little wonder that one charity is turning to the most shocking of shock tactics to remind young people to use condoms.

shocking-aids-advert_0

AIDES, a French NGO, has created a series of posters depicting a couple making love – in which one of the pair is, unusually, a giant creepy-crawly.

And while having a pair of legs wrapped around you in a passionate embrace sounds entertaining, when it’s four pairs, it looks a lot less fun.

In one, a woman is seen getting seriously intimate with a massive spider. In another, a man is caught in flagrante with a scorpion the size of a grizzly bear, its poison sting inches from his back. The idea is to suggest that no matter how attractive your partner may be, they could have a STD bug of their own – one that could kill you as easily as any spider bite.

The slogan for the adverts reads: “Without a condom you’re making love with Aids. Protect yourself.”

But do you think shock tactics like these would encourage people to use a condom? Leave your comments below…

by SUE OSTLER – Wednesday, February 11, 2009

How often have you found yourself in a room with a drop dead gorgeous stranger – knowing full well that an opportunity like this might never come again – and never made a move?

So how about this for an idea? Instead of sighing and wistfully thinking about what could have been – do something in 2009 to get over your flirt-phobia!

1. Get your flirting mojo into overdrive. Learn to collect confidence points and flirt at any and every opportunity! Surround yourself with fabulously supportive wing-women who know you’re on a mission to flirt and will back you up at every turn.

2. Prepare your station ladies! Have all your ammo ready before you go into flirt mode and be ready for all and any occasions. That means accessories, grooming, styling, outfit, make-up, hair, hygiene and of course – to-die-for lingerie.

3. Step into the flirt zone. Once you’re out and about, flirting opportunities will start presenting themselves left right and centre. You need to be on high alert and ready to act immediately!

4. Don’t waste your time on standoffish, cold flirts, go for warm cuddly flirts.

5. Lose the attitude. Get rid of it! Men don’t like it – especially when you’re so haughty – it terrifies them! They have a hard enough time coming up and saying hello let alone putting up with your attitude. Why confuse him with your “hard to get” signals?

6. So you’ve met someone you like – well let them know! Bang them over the head with it! Keep eye contact with him and keep him involved. Men have very short attention spans so practice repeating the same moves over. Every once in a while lick your lips.

7. Yes we know the weather is crap. Yes we know the country is in recession, but ditch the glum-fest because while a radiant smile draws like a magnet, a sour down turned mouth will do the opposite.

8. Rewire your brain – this is the year when dreams become realities. Keep a vision of how your hot new life will look and conjure it up every time you’re having a bad moment.

9. Leave the house and always look like you’re ready to party. Or at least have a chat!

10. Smile. Smile. Smile!

Artist, drag queen, former nudist and born again Christian James Kuhn has turned his hand to face painiting. Banana anyone?

Kuhn describes his creations as self-portraits because he uses his own face as the canvas for his work.

In his blog Kuhn says: “I really have become totally obsessed with face painting and i think about what i can do next all the time.”

Kuhn does his own take on Mickey Mouse but on the theme of oranges.

Here Kuhn uses real popcorn to add more realism to his popcorn box creation.

Kuhn turns his face into a cheeseburger complete with gherkin. He started face painting his face after he was snowed in by 12ins of snow and had to miss work.

Corn on the gob … sweet

A rockin’ role … as Kiss

A-peeling … monkey mug

Use your melon … go green

Basket case … food for thought

Work-of-art … bodybuilder

Kebab … what are skew looking at?

Fruity … strawberry look

Happy … painted smile

Kuhn’s unique take on a halloween Dracula mask showing two screaming faces joined together.Two-faced … don’t look, he’s behind you!

Sweet tooth … pineapple

Snack attack … feeding the face

Operation … board game

What’s the point? … prickly

Phis-hog … pig

Baby face … embryo

Tut tut … Pharaoh-face

Air head … James’s face as the Goodyear blimp

Bird-brain … Tweety Pie

Kuhn turns his face into a cheeseburger complete with gherkin. He started face painting his face after he was snowed in by 12ins of snow and had to miss work.

David Blaine Is Either The Baddest Man On The Planet Or The Biggest You-Know-What On The Planet

David Blaine Takes Two Punches From Kimbo Slice

YouTube Preview Image

David Blaine is a douche bag “magician” whose “tricks” have included being in a block of ice, standing on a pole, being underwater for almost 9 minutes, and last night where he supposedly hung upside down for 60 hours.

Well in the lead up to him coming down from being upside down then going back up and disappearing, ABC ran a few other “tricks”. One of those included being punched in the stomach twice by Kimbo Slice.

You might be thinking,”What’s the big deal? People get punched in the stomach all the time.” Blaine was actually reenacting the very same thing that Harry Houdini did that ended up killing him, when Houdini suffered a ruptured appendix from multiple blows (Note: May not have actually happened).

 

Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson, who fights for Elite XC – a rival promotion of the UFC – took part in the illusionist’s recent TV programme ‘David Blaine: Dive of Death’.

Blaine replicated a trick that took the life of Harry Houdini, who claimed he could take any shot to his stomach.

But Houdini suffered a ruptured appendix after the blow and later died from his injuries.

In the show, Blaine is seen stepping inside a practice cage where Slice trains.

The MMA favourite unleashed two devastating punches to Blaine’s abdomen but the magic man amazingly remained on his feet.

Afterwards, Blaine revealed he had chosen Slice to take part in the stunt because he is one of the few people he fears.
