Surely it's this one, about building canals between the Red Sea and the Nile?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/01/suez-2-ever-given-grounding-prompts-plan-for-canal-along-egypt-israel-border

The 'We built the pyramids, didn't we?' bants line kind of gives it away.

I could be totally wrong -- I keep hoping a lot of the stuff in the news since about 2016 has been a long-game April Fool's joke.

Yeah, That's the one, you can tell by the name of the journo allegedly reporting the story ( and the name of the international tunnelling company.Oh, and the names of the people involved. Fuck, it's obviously a joke, the zany funsters!). And don't call me " Surely".

I tried to do one for the CAB crew

Holy shit, I can't believe they gave Glinner his Twitter account back; all those complaints to the BBB must have worked. ffs Twitter

https://www.twitter.com/glinner

I wanted to link it to that balls doing a shit cgi video but I couldn't find a link. Also I wanted to do it in the early morning so anyone who checked CAB while still bleary-eyed might have fallen for it, but I forgot.

Heh -- I didn't twig on the names, but rather in looking at the maps and stuff; I've recently been talking with a student who wants to do a dissertation project on Roman/Red Sea trade so I've had the area and its shipping lanes on the brain recently (aside from run-aground shipping vessels).

Happy to help -- gotta go -- there's a sale at Penney's.

Unbeknown to them maybe the chain is made of pasta giving a false sense of security. The bear easily then escapes its shackles and mauls them to death. April Fool.

They're "Fools" because they didn't realize the chain restraining the bear in their garden was made of pasta? Really? ... You may as well just ring their doorbell and stab them to death and say "A-ha ha, gotcha, April Fool", as they expire. Makes as much sense.

Thought it might be this one

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56598932

but given the state of the world at the moment, anything sounds plausible. This one was up on the top of the front page earlier this morning.

Wasn't there just a viral video about a family who were recreating the entire airport/flying on hols experience for their kids?

Maybe its not a real bear but is in fact revealed to be ex SNP and sex pest Alex Salmond. Vote Alba.

Could you fetch in the tartan paint from the garage? Cheers.

Never understood why Leyland or someone never made a range called "Tartan". Put your cheapest white emulsion in a 5l tin and charge £65 for it. Would end hazing overnight and they'd make a fortune in the process.

My old local announced they'd got planning permission to take the roof off the flat above it for a beer garden, including CAD renderings of what it'd look like.

Vote St Albans.

Actually with that cross symbol as well there's potential for something like × POSTAL BALLOT. Might send that to them with an invoice for £10,000.

Actual Avril Fish joke on Facebook this morning: 'Walrus spotted in Aberystwyth', complete with photoshop.

Given that our walrus chum was seen a few days ago basking on an RNLI slipway in Tenby, a completely unimaginative non-joke. CHEER UP WHY AREN'T YOU LAUGHING

A friend at school once did an April Fool that he'd found a "rubber johnny" on the pavement and when we followed him to go and have a look, revealed "April Fool!".  Lamest April Fools joke ever.

Just been to the shop and there was an old man in the frozen section, collapsed on the floor, saying "help me, I'm having a heart attack."

NOT FALLING FOR THAT ONE, MATE!

I was taken in a few years ago by Heresgarrywiththesport on the Today Programme when he announced the story that the Grand National and The Derby were going to be merged, and held on alternate years at Aintree and Epsom, with retractable fences or something.

It sounded completely plausible to me. Horse racing is what I believe people round here call S4C.

Just had a fucking tedious email from KFC that they are introducing "KFB", a new range of beef burgers. Click on the link and... Aaaaahhhh, got ya!!

As if diversifying a fast food menu is somehow ridiculous and you'd be a dickhead for thinking that a chicken shop could possibly sell burgers as well.

KFC? KFGrave, more like.

There will be legions of disappointed people already lickin' their fingers at the thought of burgers deep fried in spicy batter. Not to mention that most chicken shops actually do sell burgers as well as chicken.

The annual BBC round up of news stories that 'seem like April Fool's jokes'

Quote
10. A comic book is being published about new US First Lady Jill Biden. She follows in the footsteps of others who have been given the treatment including Dolly Parton and Mother Theresa. A matching colouring book will also be launched alongside the book when it is published later this month. It's part of the "Female Force" series of books, focusing on women who have made a difference around the world.

Much like Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize before (or was it just after) becoming President.

Almost got caught out by an email from Felix stating they had created cat food pouches easy enough for cats to open.
