Default April Fool Jokes

How about sharing some jokes you played on your family or friends? And also the jokes by some websites? For example, check out the "Did you know..." section of Wikipedia (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). They sound really funny and dumb, until you check out the links!

Portugal sells Cristiano Ronaldo to Spain for €160m!:
Weighed down by debt, and reeling from the latest downgrading of their country's credit status, Portugal's finance ministry has decided to turn his country around in an interesting way.
He has secured the co-operation of football's highest-paid player in an audacious bid to draw the nation back from the brink of economic collapse.

Cool! I just sent an email to pauline.yorlegg@bmw.co.uk. I hope they have created such an email id with a really funny automated response. Keeping my fingers crossed ;-)

Edit: the response is really boring :-(

1. It is said that on 1st April, 1698, several people were tricked into going to the Tower of London to "see the Lions washed".
2. There is also a reference to April Fools Day in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1392) (however there is still a debate going on about the actual date mentioned in the text)
3. There are some more theories but they don’t sound too authentic

(you knew it, didn't ya )
