What is it that gives us such delight in hoaxing the gullible? The April Fool perpetrated by Burger King who advertised they were to produce left-handed hamburgers for the 32 million left-handed Americans. They were inundated with eager buyers...The famous BBC TV 'Spaghetti Tree' hoax...The outrage caused by Taco Bell's announcement that they had purchased the Liberty Bell and henceforth it would be known as the 'Taco Liberty Bell' ...Taken from the website this is a hilarious collection of hoaxes which proves just how gullible human beings are.
