Conjunctions Spaghetti is now commonplace in Great Britain, for this has not always been the case. In 1957, the British Broadcasting Company aired a three-minute story claiming that spaghetti grew on trees, as an April Fool’s Day joke. The film showed loopy strands of pasta being “harvested” on a family farm in Switzerland. It was then laid out to dry in the sun for several hours, so all the moisture evaporated. The segment claimed that, apart from an especially mild winter, the year’s spaghetti harvest would be a bumper crop. It also explained that the uniform length of the spaghetti strands was the result of extensive breeding by farmers. The film’s authoritative voice made it seem plausible, and many Britons were taken in by the prank.
