  From television revealing that spaghetti grows on trees to advertisements for the left-handed burger, the tradition of April Fool's Day stories in the media has a weird and wonderful history。

  从种植意大利面的电视新闻到左撇子汉堡的广告,媒体在愚人节制造的各种稀奇古怪的恶搞新闻也有一段“光辉”历史了。

  Here are several of the top ten April Fool's Day pranks ever pulled off, as judged by the US website of Museum of Hoaxes for their notoriety,absurdity,and number of people duped。

  日前,美国“恶作剧博物馆”网站根据恶作剧的知名度、荒诞性及被愚弄的人数,评选出了媒体所制造的愚人节“十大经典恶搞新闻”。其中的几个如下:

  Swiss spaghetti

  harvest tops the hoax list. In 1957, a BBC television show announced that thanks to a mild winter and the virtual elimination of the spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. Footage of Swiss farmers pulling strands of spaghetti from trees prompted a barrage of calls from people wanting to know how to grow their own spaghetti at home。

  第一大恶搞新闻是1957年愚人节的瑞士意大利面大丰收。当天,英国广播公司在一个新闻节目中报道,由于受暖冬影响,再加上危害意大利面“种植”的象鼻虫已被彻底消灭,瑞士的农民们获得意大利面大丰收,电视台还特别配上了瑞士农民从树上摘下一缕缕意大利面的镜头。节目播出后,很多人打电话去电台询问如何在家种植意大利面。

  Instant color TV sets in Sweden comes as the third. Sweden in 1962 had only one television channel, which broadcast in black and white. The station's technical expert appeared on the news to announce that thanks to a newly developed technology, viewers could convert their existing sets to receive color pictures by pulling a nylon stocking over the screen。

  第三大恶搞新闻是1962年的瑞典“瞬变彩色电视机"。当时,瑞典只有一个电视频道,而且是黑白的。愚人节那天,电视台技术人员在新闻中宣布,由于最新技术的开发成功,观众们只需将一只尼龙长统袜撑开盖在电视屏幕上,就能使黑白画面立刻变成彩色。

  US ex-president Nixon's comeback is placed at sixth. In 1992, US National Public Radio announced that Richard Nixon was running for president again. His new campaign slogan was, "I didn't do anything wrong, and I won't do it again." They even had clips of Nixon announcing his candidacy. Listeners flooded the show with calls expressing their outrage. Nixon's voice actually turned out to be that of impersonator Rich Little。

  美国前总统尼克森的复出被评为第六大经典假新闻。1992年,美国国家公共广播电台宣布,理查德·尼克森将再度竞选总统。他的最新竞选口号是,”我没做错什么,我不会重蹈覆辙。“新闻中还配有尼克松宣布竞选的录音剪辑。这一消息发布之后,听众们纷纷打电话去电台表示愤怒。实际上,尼克森的声音是由一位名叫里奇·利特尔的演员模仿的。
