April Fools' Day pranks made by companies
Ring tone rage
National Public Radio, 2007
When it comes to April Fools' Day, NPR has a bit of a sly streak. According to the Museum of Hoaxes, an online reference of notable pranks, the network told listeners Richard Nixon was planning to run for president in 1992 (slogan: "I didn't do anything wrong, and I won't do it again). In 2004, it reported a fake Postal Service plan to allow portable Zip codes.
