On April 1, 1974, a local man named Oliver Bickar burned 70 old tires in the crater of Mount Edgecumbe in Alaska for an April Fools’ Day joke. The dark smoke rising from the crater convinced residents that the volcano was erupting. After phone calls from the locals to the police station, a helicopter flew up to the top of the mountain. The pilot told the officers, “the son of a gun looks fantastic.” The hoax was revealed and “April Fool” was spray-painted in 15 m letters. The Guardian reports that Bickar had been planning the prank for four years, and lists it the best Aprils Fools hoax of all time.

Do you have funny people around you? Who is the funniest person you know? Do you know any other pranks like Olivar’s? 

If someone’s heart is in their mouth, they are feeling extremely nervous:
“My heart was in my mouth when I opened the letter.”
