Swiss Spaghetti Harvest (Video)

Today we are going to set the way back machine to April 1, 1957, when the BBC broadcasted a report about a bumper spaghetti harvest in southern Switzerland (which was really an April's Fools joke if you have not guessed yet). After the show ran, the inquisitive public flooded the station with calls requesting tips on how to grow a spaghetti tree.

The video is definitely 1957 vintage, it is also small and hard to see but you will get the idea. This video also requires the RealPlayer to be installed to view it. I tried to find a higher quality source in another format but this is the best that I can find.
