My Favorite April Fools Joke of All Time

Posted by Stropp on April 2, 2008

Since everyone has been talking about the April Fools pranks that have peppered the Internet over the last day, I thought I might make a second post and reminisce about my favorite April fools prank of all time. And it's not a web one either.

This prank occurred many years ago when I was in my late teens.

At the time down at one of the waterfront areas there was a restaurant called the Buffalo. The original Buffalo was one of the first colony or explorer ships to come to this area and the restaurant was a replica of the original ship.

On this April 1st, a local Adelaide radio station breakfast team told their listeners that the Buffalo was doing a promotion and that the first 100 people would be taken on a cruise around the bay.

Sure enough a few people turned up and waiting for their chance at a cruise.

The problem, or the prank was that the Buffalo was a replica. It wasn't a real ship, it wasn't even anywhere near the water, and it was built into the ground.

Yet still they waited for their cruise.
