April Fools' Day jokes here

I forgot to post about my favourite local April Fools' Day joke last night when it was still the 1st here. Behold: the HydroBus.

Another good one was the Liquorland advertisement in yesterday's Herald which had 'taste patches' for different wines. Apparently quite a few people were licking them to find out that... they tasted of newspaper. There are usually some good ones in the Herald but we both forgot to buy one yesterday. There was a lovely long article one year about a German U-boat which came here during the war with photographs the captain took while he was ashore buying groceries and having a nice sit down and a cup of tea at a tea room. :-)
