  1. I thought your joke today was much toned down from yesterday’s posted for only a short time. Did you lose your nerve?

  2. Quorn brand introduced some Quorn flakes! Aussie apples bred an apple with Vegemite flavour, and a Tassie tiger was spotted at Fooles Bend. Some of the pranks which found their way onto my news feed today.

  4. Abc had one up for a short time this morning, but was taken down before I could repost it unfortunately. It was about wifi enabled ear tags for cattle, that could be plugged in and recharged when cattle drank at the trough. Available 1/4/16
