Fool That I Am!

On our usual daily commute to work this morning, I peered at Mr. D.’s copy of the Metro when a short article caught my eye.

It was about the new trampoline aisles that Tesco were introducing to their stores which would enable those made of shorter stuff (like me!) to grab things from the hard-to-reach top shelves. It was demonstrated by TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh.

An interesting concept but I was slowly beginning to wonder if Tesco had lost their mind…

Me: Do you see those new trampoline aisles?

Mr. D: Hmmm.

Me: If I was from Tesco, I’d be worried about shoppers having an accident.

Mr. D: Hmmm.

Me: Plus you’ll get dummies just mucking about on them and making a nuisance of themselves.

Mr. D: Hmmm.

Me: Plus I think elderly people would find it a struggle.

Mr. D: Hmmm.

Me: And also if you leapt up and tried to grab a tin of something, you’d just end up knocking over a whole ton of stuff.

Mr. D: Of course you would.

Then the penny dropped.

Me: OMG! It’s an April Fool’s gag!

Mr. D: Well of course it is. Did you think it was real?

Me: I forgot what day it is. I’ve never seen one of these pranks in the press before. And anyway I didn’t think anyone bothered with April Fool’s Day anymore.

So I spotted my first ever April Fool’s Day prank in the press.

And it got me!

And here’s a clip of an famous April Fool’s prank played by the BBC back in 1957 which I’d heard about when I was a kid and I wondered “Who on earth would be taken in by that..?”
