Does China have April 1 jokes? If so, please post some :)

I'm listening to NPR Science Friday and they have a segment of jokes involving Science/Scientists. I heard a couple of good jokes. They are clean, too. Some are meant to be told, not read:

Q: What's the most significant biological experiment of all times?

A: When Luther Burbank crossed the Colorado River with his wife

Q: Why is 6 afraid of 7?

A: Because 7 8 9

Q: Why is the mushroom invited to the party?

A: Because he is a fungi.

Q: How many climate-change deniers does it take to change a light bulb?

A: What the hell are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with that light bulb.

It's sad that China doesn't have April Fool's day. In the online version of Time Magazine is an article with noteworthy pranks on April Fool's Day.

The best is the "Swiss Spaghetti Harvest" from 1957 that the BBC aired as a segment on a highly-respected program. The BBC reported that "thanks to a mild winter and the elimination of the dreaded spaghetti weevil Swiss farmers were experiencing record spaghetti crops." After the program aired, the BBC was inundated with calls from viewers wanting to know how to grow your own spaghetti tree. The BBC recommended to "place a sprig of spaghetti in a can of tomato sauce and hope for the best."

Another fine prank was the Iceberg in Sydney Harbor from 1978. A Sydney business man had announced that he was going to tow an iceberg from Antartica to Sydney. Sure enough, on April 1 of that year, the iceberg showed up in Sydney Harbor. Unfortunately, it was raining that day. The foam and shaving cream that made up the iceberg was washed away.
