April Fool......

I wonder what April 1st will bring, especially from Plusnet Forum Posters !!
Previously, many years ago, as part of a News Crew, we were sent out to Vox Pop members of the Public, because the EU had brought in a ruling that all cooked Chips had to be a standard length and width, all Crinkle cut chips were to be banned!!
We also interviewed a few Chip Shop Owners....... we ate a lot of Chips that day !!
From a News production meeting on 31st March 1978-ish !!!!
Then there was the story about the EU dictating that all bananas had to be straight !!
As a TV Operations Manager, I once informed the Sound Department, that to save money on replacement batteries, which were changed every day, they now had to use mains powered Radio Microphone Transmitters !!
Some twigged, some didn't.
I understand a local radio station on Jersey is holding a competition, that if you can photograph one of their promotional cars tomorrow, there is an interview as a prize.

I expect it will be more news from plusnet saying they are opening yet another call centre.

All PN  customers will get a free upgrade to FTTP provided they call this number (0800 432 xx80) to apply before noon.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: April Fool......

My stepson decided he wasn't going to be caught out by me today.
I dropped him off at school and reminded him it was his bi-yearly bloodtest after school and I'd meet him at the hospital.

Caught a program earlier about the 1957 spaghetti tree April Fool.
Very cleverly done.

Square Eggs !!
My other half fell for this hook, line, and sinker. In fact she was so convinced she tried convincing me. She was so convincing she ( almost ) had me even though I told her square eggs wont happen. " It can " she says: " I saw It on telly " also she pointed out to me that there " Is all different breeds of chickens " I do worry about her at times..sigh. Was funny though the things she comes out with are really funny.
