weird event: April 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg Thousands of pillow-wielding people gathered in cities around the world over the weekend, to take part in a series of pillow fights on International Pillow Fight Day.

Marking the fourth year of the annual good-natured bedding battles - started by the The Urban Playground Movement - pillow fights were arranged in cities from New York and London to Zurich and Taipei.

Each pillow brawl saw 'fighters' arrive with their own pillows before commencing battle at a pre-arranged time and seeing feathers fly.

Many of the participants wore fancy dress or pyjamas for the mass pillow fights and ran around hitting people with pillows until they were worn out… at least they had something comfortable to rest their head on when they got tired.

So with very little further ado, here is our selection of the best April Fools' Day jokes 2011 had to offer… and we didn't even include our own.
