Tuesday, April 1, was April Fools’ Day, an unofficial holiday known for pranks and jokes reportedly dating back to the Roman Empire, and has a long history of public pranks.Managing Editor Christopher Fox Graham

The New York Sun published an article in 1835 by British astronomer John Herschel announcing the discovery of life on the moon.

Britain’s Panorama magazine published a story with photos in 1957 of farmers harvesting spaghetti trees in Switzerland, which had a bumper crop due to the mild winter which had kept the spaghetti weevil population in check.

In 1985, Sports Illustrated published a feature story about pitcher Hayden Siddhartha Finch throwing 165-mph fastballs.
