April Fools Round Up


The Guardian announces that after 188 years of ink on paper, it's decided to become the first newspaper in the world to be published exclusively through the internet messaging service, Twitter.

The Sun found Moses' staff in central London, and the Daily Telegraph reports on a plan to harness energy from the movements of fish in our rivers.

The paper says a research project has found that a salmon swimming less than a quarter of a mile can generate enough energy to make 18 cups of tea.

The giveaway is that the research has been carried out by a certain Gavin Roach.

My favourite moment of excitement followed by disappointment was when I spotted these gems on firebox.com: SatNav Shoes, iREMember Dream Recorder, Piss Up In A Brewery and Powdered Beer.  All of which, to my mind at least seem vaguely credible!
