Trivia

On 1 April 1957 a news segment was broadcast about the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest with footage of Swiss peasants harvesting spaghetti strands from spaghetti trees. Many viewers were taken in and phoned in asking how to grow their own spaghetti trees where they received the reply "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best." Considered one of the best April Fools' hoaxes of all time.
