With the best will in the world I have never been able to understand so called April Fool jokes or japes, especially when presented by the media. So today I have avoided newspapers, TV and radio. Someone always presents a story and I end up feeling stupid when I discover it is not true. Wikipedia gives a detailed explanation about it being a festival dating back to Roman times. The truth is that some people like making idiots of some other people. Grrrr . . . . . . . why am I so gullible?
The Guardian has published a list of probable April Fool capers; I presume this is just for people like me. Anybody been taken in?
