Hoax: April Fools' Day

The Museum Of Hoaxes lists the Top 100 April Fools' Day Hoaxes Of All Time. I love #18 - "In 1981 the Daily Mail ran a story about an unfortunate Japanese long-distance runner, Kimo Nakajimi, who had entered the London Marathon but, on account of a translation error, thought that he had to run for 26 days, not 26 miles."

Reuters has three of this year's English crop - not very good. You can listen to the Guardian's faux Chris Martin pro-Tory song. The full story.
