To fall for something…..It’s April fool’s day but we wouldn’t fall for this today, would we?!

Well back in the 1950s when the British hadn’t moved on tremendously from their wartime diet, allegedly people did fall for – that is they wrongly believed, this prank or joke played by the BBC. You might find it incredible but remember, back then (and arguably still today) the BBC was a highly trusted and respected source of information; moreover, I’m not sure that anyone had heard of the concept of fake news back in the 50s! Anyway.. just how gullible or na├»ve were the public then?? Take a look and decide for yourself!

pop a sprig of spaghetti into a tin of tomato sauce, water and wait!
