1. Swiss Spaghetti Trees
What, you didn't know pasta grew on trees?
In 1957, British news show Panorama broadcast a story about an abundant "spaghetti harvest" in Switerzland, due to a warm winter and the "virtual disappearance of the spaghetti weevil." They even produced a short video of a family pulling strands of spaghetti off trees and laying them in the sun to dry.
As far as successful pranks go, this is one for the record books: hundreds of people phoned the BBC show asking how they could grow their own spaghetti trees, to which the station replied, "Place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
