Happy April Fool's Day! 

We aren't really hiring baristas  :D Although, if anyone wants to take up that virtual position, be our guest!

What we actually wanted was to get your attention to ask what funny April Fool's jokes you'd seen out and about today or what old favourites you can't believe you were conned by. 

A neon light saying Just for fun

One from today that sticks in my mind almost made me choke on my porridge - the news that a bronze statue of Dominic Cummings was to be erected at Barnard Castle in his honour.  Political opinions aside, my April fool's detector was quickly initiated!

While, an oldie but a goodie was this BBC classic from 1957 that declared spaghetti grew on trees  :D Now I can be naïve but come on!

Over to you:

  • Has anything made you suspicious today that an April fools was afoot?
  • What's your all-time favourite April fools prank or joke?
