Singapore Bans April Fool's Jokes: CBS Breaking News carries this article on their website, which it describe itself as a "a viral verisimilitude project designed and developed by Nick Oba, of Locust Swarm."
The Singaporean authorities have announced a ban on April fool's jokes in the media.

In a memorandum circulated to television broadcasting stations, radio stations, and newspaper publications by the Media Development Authority (MDA), the authorities warned media outlets against running fake stories for the purposes of entertainment.

"The integrity of the media comes into question when quality standards are abandoned recklessly in favor of inappropriate jocularity. False reporting undermines the trustworthiness of news itself and leads to the decay of the social fabric," the statement circulated by the MDA read.

Media outlets were told to stick to business as usual on April Fool's Day.
