Dream come through. DS and I flying to Mars and beyond...

Would you? We'd need a nice dad with a young dd to join. grin

Have you spotted any stories in the media?

There's a story in the Fail saying Olivia Colman might be the next James Bond....

Oh now that one would be lovely. Have huge crush on her.

Apart from the fact James Bond is a male character. I don't know if it's an AF or not but presumed so.

NynaevesSister Fri 01-Apr-16 08:39:37

It would be AF! But nice to imagine smile

I don't have a baby so can't apply. I think that's pure discrimination. Where do I complain?

The local police posted on FB "We are proud to be launching our new cat unit" complete with a video of the new police cats and what makes them so suited to police work grin I thought that was actually a really good April Fool's story!!

The job require knowledge of all 5 verses of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. 5 verses?!?! Have I been depriving DD all these years of another 4 verses of hell joy?

I'd love Olivia Coleman to be the next Bond! Jamie isn't unheard of as a girls name, and didn't Ryan Reynolds name his daughter James? Shame that it's probably an April Fool.

I did snigger at this one from a baby sling company grin

The Guardians story about the Royal family considering going public on their desire to remain in Europe is clearly an April Fools. Prince Harry wants to tell all to Ant & Dec!

You could spot the NASA lie from this:
NASA, the world's leader in space and aeronautics,

Not at putting people in space, atm. ..

I think the Olivia Colman / Bond thing came from The Night Manager, there were loads of tweets calling for her to be the next JB after the final episode. So it sounds like more of an extrapolation of that than a proper AF.

The Metro has a crap story about 'Boris Boards' - ie BoJo planning to bring in branded hoverboard Segway things.

Lweji Fri 01-Apr-16 08:52:39

I hadn't found the Guardian story. I thought it was the turtle.

SelfRaisingFlour Fri 01-Apr-16 08:59:02

Sorry can't do a link, but this is the headline in the Guardian.

Exclusive: royal family considering dramatic Brexit intervention

Youarentkiddingme Fri 01-Apr-16 09:00:06

I read it as 1/4 stories as in a fraction! I was thinking it was going to be a TAAt where people didn't read the full Op.

Clearly I'm the AF around here. hmm

Love the nasa story though!
