Swiss spaghetti harvest (1957)

The YouTube video has been removed, but this is still a good day to remember the 1957 British news broadcast on the spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland, complete with convincing footage of trees laden with stringy pasta. The story was the brainchild of Charles de Jaeger. The details are at the Museum of Hoaxes website.
