April fools and fails: zero gravity London Eye pods, a sloth bar and piggyback taxi rides (Time Out)
Don’t believe anything you read today, unless of course it’s on the Time Out blog*. Because it’s April Fools again, when everyone pulls out their best porkie pies in the hope of being able to scream ‘gotcha’ at you tomorrow. As it’s gone noon (the official end to this madness), we’ve rounded up the best London-based fools we’ve seen so far, from the ones we almost fell for, to the ones we wish were true, to the ones that barely raised a chortle.
Major news for Brixton
Brixton Pound almost had us fooled with the news that John Major was the new face of their £5 notes. His Average-Joe-to-PM story made him a vaguely convincing candidate – although we heard more calls for his face to be printed on toilet paper than paper money.
Fools rating: 5/5
