That Day When a Professor Pranked the AP

After blogging for nearly 9 years, this is still my reaction every April Fools' Day. This day is a minefield for bloggers for obvious reason. But the pain can last even after the day of shenanigans is over, because content and images travel 'round the web for weeks or even months afterwards, detached from their original context. The best April Fools jokes, of course, are those that are feasible enough to be real - and those can be darn hard to spot.

In any case, enough grousing. Let me tell you instead of an April Fool's prank that's very meta.

In 1983, Boston University professor emeritus of history Joseph Boskin was asked by a young AP reporter about the origin of April Fools' Day. Boskin initially declined, saying that he didn't know much about it, but when the reporter kept on badgering him, he decided to play a little prank.

Boskin said that April Fools' Day originated during the reign of Roman Emperor Constantine, when a group of court jesters said that a fellow jester named Kugel could run the empire more efficiently. Constantine was intrigued, so he named the jester king for a day. King Kugel declared that on that day going forward, April 1st would be a day for absurdity.

Kugel, of course, is a traditional Jewish dish - that popped in Boskin's head because he has a friend that loved it. Boskin figured that the New York-based reporter would catch on immediately, but "instead, he asked how to spell kugel," Boskin said in a Boston University interview.

The AP ran the story, and Boskin started to get calls from the Today Show and other news outlets asking him to get into more details about the origins of April Fools' Day. Boskin played along for a while.

Back at Boston University, Boskin used that as an example to teach his class how media can pick up a joke or a rumor and run it as a real story. The lesson was that journalists should question everything instead of relying on experts. Unbeknownst to him, an editor of the university's student newspaper was in attendance, and published the story under the catchy headline of "Professor Fools AP."

Naturally, the Associated Press was quite upset. "The AP had a huge conniption when they read this," Boskin told BU Today, "I got an immediate phone call from an editor there, who was furious, saying that I had ruined the career of a young reporter. He said I told a lie. ‘A lie?’ I asked, ‘I was telling an April Fools’ Day story.’

“The AP always, always checks on stories and for some reason this one fell through the cracks,” Boskin says. “It was their fault for not checking the story, and I embarrassed them. But I mean, really — kugel? What reporter from New York doesn’t know what that is?”

By the way, the young journalist whose career Boskin supposedly ruined? His name was Fred Bayles and he turned out to be all right: he's now an associate professor of journalism in the same Boston University.

Cell Phone Crashing: Prank Someone Who's Talking Too Loudly on the Phone


Cell phone crashing at Disneyland - via BGR

Don't you hate it when someone around you starts talking loudly on their cell phone? Don't just give them a dirty look and suffer in silence, join in on the fun!

That's what comedian Greg Benson of MediocreFilms did. When someone is talking loudly on their mobile phone, Benson would sidle up next to them and pretend to talk on his phone as well. Except that he'd join in on the stranger's phone conversation.

Benson called this "cell phone crashing." Some of his unwitting victims are oblivious, a few of gave him quizzical looks and one even ran away. But in the end, most of them appreciate the humor.

Here are a few more of Benson's cell phone crashing clips:

Your Fat Is Why Your Brain is Dumb


Image: Julien Tromeur/Shutterstock

We all know that being overweight is bad for your health, but results from a new study show that it can also be bad for your brain. In fact, it can make you stupider.

From past experiments, scientists know that obese lab animals have poor memory and lower learning skills as compared to their normal-weight peer. For example, lab mice don't recognize familiar objects and do not navigate mazes as well, but the exact reason why wasn't discovered until now.

In a paper published last month in the Journal of Neuroscience, Alexis Stranahan and colleagues at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University found that as lab mice grow obese, their blood show increased levels of interleukin 1 proteins. These proteins, a type of signalling molecules released by cells that affect the behavior other cells, play a central role in the regulation of immune responses and is known to cause inflammation.

In obese lab mice, interleukin 1 can pass through the blood-brain barrier and enters the hippocampus, a part of the brain that's important in learning and memory. There, interleukin 1 molecules cause inflammation and lower neuron activities - essentially the molecules are clogging things up there.

Removing the fat by mini-liposuction of the mice cause the blood interleukin 1 level to drop and return of cognitive performance. In reverse, surgically putting fat in thin mice cause their interleukin 1 levels to shoot up and their cognitive performance to drop.

Now here's a good news you can use: turns out that exercise works just as well. When the researchers put the obese mice on a daily treadmill regimen, they noticed that after 12 weeks, these mice have lost significant amount of belly fat and did better on cognitive tests as compared to sedentary mice.

So, get out there and exercise! It's good for your body and your brain!
