The local police department answered a call from the convent about a strange object circling overhead. When the officer arrived to take the report, he asked Mother Superior what kind of object it was. "I can't say," she replied, "but sister Elizabeth says she knows exactly what it looked like. Would you like to speak with her?" "That's ok," said the policeman. "I'll just put it down as a nun-identified flying object."

Hungry Harry’s Hundred Best Hoaxes……………………………


#38: Operation Parallax.   1979: London's Capital Radio announced that Operation Parallax would soon go into effect. This was a government plan to resynchronize the British calendar with the rest of the world. It was explained that ever since 1945 Britain had gradually become 48 hours ahead of all other countries because of the constant switching back and forth from British Summer Time. To remedy this situation, the British government had decided to cancel April 5 and 12 that year. Capital Radio received numerous calls as a result of this announcement. One employer wanted to know if she had to pay her employees for the missing days. Another woman was curious about what would happen to her birthday, which fell on one of the cancelled days.
