Can you tell a phony April Fools story from the truth?
These appeared in an April Fools quiz:
15: Carrots reclassified as a fruit
In 1979 officials in the European Union confirmed what many have

actually a variety of fruit. The officials urged that appropriate
reclassification efforts should begin at once.
16: Purple Carrots
For those yearning to add a colorful splash to their meals, a British
supermarket announced last year that it will soon be selling purple
carrots. The store hopes that the new offering will appeal to fickle
children who have grown bored by the orange variety.
