Did we April Fool you all?

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WELL folks, you may have no­ticed that Sun­day was April Fools’ Day... did you spot our spoof tale?

It’s a tricky job spot­ting an April Fool in

as the sto­ries in the world’s fun­ni­est pa­per are so as­ton­ish­ing, many peo­ple think they are ALL prac­ti­cal jokes!

But we have to put our hands up and ad­mit our yarn about gov­ern­ment plans to im­pose a TAX on poo­ing was a wind-up.

And it must have been a good one, be­cause sev­eral in­ter­na­tional news out­lets took our fake ex­clu­sive and re­ported it as FACT!

We had to smile when a lead­ing AR­GEN­TINE news­pa­per was taken in and ranted that the Pay As You Poo Tax was “ev­i­dence that the Bri­tish Em­pire is doomed.”

Well Mr Gau­cho, as you would say in your silly, clack­ing Span­ish tongue....tonto de Abril!
