April Fool's Day gags for under $10
Make a fool of yourself, a fool of your friends and, if you're a staid Canadian broadcaster, fool your trusting audience! Sheila Copps, David Suzuki and more all play a part in this parade of fools and pranksters. From edible budgies (gasp!) to the old spraying lapel flower, this trip down memory lane recalls the many ways to make, or to be, an April Fool.
