Video: April First. Piggy Bank Of Humor GreenInfo
The first month of spring - March this year is not at all like the beginning of spring. The Snow Queen froze us, zapurzhil-zavuzhila and stubbornly does not want to give up their positions. Let's help the sun to melt the snow in the fields and ice in the eyes with warm smiles and ringing laughter, because today is the First of April! Congratulations!
Let it be called April Fools' Day, it is dearer to us called April Fool's Day. Although in ancient times, calling a person a fool did not mean offending him. That was the name of the joker, the jester, the holy fool. And they, as you know, were treated in a special way - the holy fools were allowed to make fun of the monarch for which other people were awaiting execution.
April Fool's Day is considered an unofficial holiday; it is celebrated in different countries.
For example, in Europe, the tradition of April Fools' jokes and practical jokes appeared in the 16th century.
In 1564, in France, Charles IX issued a decree ordering to postpone the celebration of the New Year from April 1 to January 1. And they made fun of those who continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1, giving them empty gifts.
In Spain, the Festival of Laughter is celebrated on 28 December.
In Ukraine, in Odessa, the festival "Humorina" is held annually on April 1.
In Ancient Russia, April 1 was considered the Day of the awakening of the brownie. Our ancestors believed that for the winter, like many animals and spirits, he fell into hibernation and woke up only occasionally to do the necessary housework. The brownie slept exactly until the day when spring had already fully come into its own. And she came, according to the ancestors, not at all in March, but in April. After a long sleep, the brownie woke up hungry, and from this angry. So that he did not make trouble, but, on the contrary, put things in order in the house, he urgently needed to be fed and cheered.
As an offering to the Spirit of the House, they offered bread, milk, various cereals, and in order to cheer him up, they organized festivities, jokes, they did not make fun of each other - they would turn their clothes inside out, then put on different shoes …
But these jokes were harmless, without intent to offend or humiliate anyone. Moreover, they were, so to speak, not large-scale.
We need examples of large-scale draws - please!
Moscow, 1703. "An unheard-of performance".
Heralds walked the streets of the capital and invited everyone to attend the "unheard of performance". There was no end of the audience. But when the curtain opened at the appointed hour, the people gathered for the spectacle saw a banner on the stage with the inscription: "First April - don't trust anyone!" This "unheard of performance" ended.
Great Britain, 1957, reporting on the spaghetti tree.
The first report of spaghetti growing on trees was made as an April Fool's joke on the BBC's Panorama TV program in 1957, which described the unusually rich spaghetti crop in Ticino due to the mild winter and the “virtual disappearance of spaghetti weevils”. Switzerland.
At the end of the report, a discussion was held about the successes of spaghetti breeders, thanks to which the quality and optimal length of spaghetti are achieved.
Additional weight was given to the reporting by the voiceover of the multi-generational British announcer Richard Dimbleby.
In the 1950s, pasta was not an everyday dish in the UK, but was known mainly as canned spaghetti in tomato sauce. This program, which was released directly on April 1st, was watched by approximately 8 million people, hundreds of whom called the next day and asked about breeding spaghetti and how they themselves can grow such a tree. The BBC is said to have advised them to "put the spaghetti sprouts in a jar of tomato sauce and hope for the best."
But not all of the calls to the BBC office were asking for a recipe for growing spaghetti. Many viewers from those who saw through and appreciated the subtle humor of British television, called the office of the television company, demanding a refutation of inaccurate information, claiming that spaghetti grows horizontally, and not vertically, as shown in the report.
That's how it happens!
Being directly related to the gardening theme, we bring to your attention the jokes of our Forum GreenInfo.ru
We publish the most ridiculous, curious and ridiculous messages from forum visitors, as well as ridiculous blunders of the editors of our portal. Here we deliberately do not edit the messages - both wrote and publish. If someone finds out his own, do not blame him, all the mistakes were made by you. On the forum we have to edit and clean them up. I'd like to see fewer annoying spelling and spelling mistakes. And do more funny stuff!)))
April 1 - I don't believe anyone! But believe me - everything that you read below is not fiction, but real questions asked to us on the Internet and by phone. Here, of course, not everything, but only the brightest and most remarkable.
The first message from which our piggy bank of humor began was this:
There is a tree … what to do ??? (the tree, apparently, was very … uh … "bad")))
And then - off we go. Visitors write, share their experience, discuss gardening problems, and we collect everything interesting and release a wall newspaper for the holidays))).
I would like to get the answer:

Do you have any prefabricated greenhouses on sale that are not heavy, so that a fragile woman of Balzac's age could drag her to the dacha without a car, something like Perchina, at least in three steps?
Quite often the question turns into a whole story. For example, in this:
"Hello! Someone brazenly eats my gerbera:(And no one is visible either on the leaves or in the soil. I bought a blooming one, bloomed normally, after that the old leaves began to turn yellow (they still have not fallen off, remained yellow-green, but whole), and the new Someone began to eat leaves immediately after emergence.That is, a new leaf begins to grow, clean, the next day it has already been bitten, then even more, as a result, about half a leaf remains, and this someone begins to gnaw the rest of the leaves (and does not touch the old ones) On the reverse side of the leaf, nothing is visible, on old (yellow) spots brown and white spots (small) are found in places. I watered with Topaz, sprayed with phytoverm. It didn't seem to help. Who is this? And what to do?"
Or this: “Hello! My plant Vanka Wet is four years old. All some kind of nondescript became, the leaves are flying around. A neighbor advised me to dig the plant and plant it again with its roots up, and break off the trunks with leaves and bury them in the ground. I did so, new shoots appeared, but I do not know what to do with the old roots, which now stick up.
Can I trim them? Please advise something."

Good day! 2 months ago I bought a Persian cyclamen. He grew remarkably and bore flowers.
I have some kind of hybrid spurge.
My milkweed has a very thin stem at the bottom, but at the top of the usual size, there may be something wrong with it. One is normal, the other is hybrid. I'm afraid the stem will break from the weight of the leaves.
I have the second pakhira, all the trunks of the first rotted, and nothing can be done about it. Guys, if you start having problems with the trunks, don't worry and don't torment the tree! Too late! Tip: water in moderation, avoid hypothermia, and spray often, but not on the trunks! Good luck to all!
