A Foolish Lamington1 April 2014
It’s only 8.45am here on 1st April but I’ve just found my first April Fool’s prank – as usual in the Guardian (the Australian online version).
An interesting article written by Olaf Priol (April Fool?) iabout the Lamington being a New Zealand invention, as proved by an 1888 painting.
An academic, Dr Arun Silva (haven’t worked out the anagram there yet but I’m sure there is one!), states that this proves conclusively that the Lamington did NOT originate in Australia.
Well, that’s settled that then.
