Belated April Fools

My Mom and I were talking about Urban Legends the other day. She had gotten an email forwarded about the Civil War origin of the song Taps. I suggested she look up "Urban Legends" in Google and see if there was any info about this story's accuracy.

Later that day she sent me email that she's found one of the urban legend debunking sites, and that the Civil War Taps story was probably false.

My Mom is good with Google.

This is not about Urban Legends, but it's fun anyway. The Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time.

I find to be great for that sort of thing. Pretty much anytime I come across anything that sounds too weird to be true, I can find it mentioned on snopes.
