April Fools: which stories caught your eye?

It’s that time again. Today’s news outlets waded into April Fool’s Day in typical style. Here are some of the journo-themed ones that have caught our eye so far.

Metro became “the only national newspapers you can eat after reading” after newsprint and food experts combined “to cook up a sweet-tasting paper that will soon be sugar-rolling off the Metro presses”. Didn’t The Sun do something similar last year?

The Guardian today pledged its “full-throated support” for the British monarchy and launched an “unprecedented month-long, 24-hour royal wedding live blog” offering minute-by-minute coverage of the preparations.

The Today programme has been working with musician Robert Fripp and sound engineer Simon Heyworth to make “3D sound” available to Radio 4 listeners.

Have you seen or heard any good (or particularly bad) April Fools this morning? Or any stories that ought to be made up but actually aren’t? Or do you think the whole thing is a bit tired?
