After centuries of bad plumbing, the Canadian Government has deployed its official Faction of Ocean Outcome Logistics (FOOL) to deal with the leak at Niagara Falls.
The leak is estimated to date back some 10,000 years, when Neanderthals attempted to install what should have been the first communal pressure shower in Canada. Estimations went awry and the result was a giant waterfall, which is often mistaken as a natural wonder..
The issue, which has caused a waterfall-sized cascade of flooding, has long been a bugbear for the nation as tourists plan holidays to Canada just to see the notorious landmark for themselves. Locals living in the area have had to put up with routine crowding on special holidays and inappropriate public displays of affection by brides, grooms and honeymooners.
Locals have had enough, petitioning to stop this faulty flow once and for all. The Government has been forced to respond and FOOL will initiate a survey of the site before starting work this year. Needless to say, the decision to fix its plumbing problems won’t be popular with everyone!
Finally dodgy piping will be put to a stop, with plumbers ready to turn off the tap at Niagara Falls.
Oh and one more thing…April Fools!
As you may have realised, this story is just an April Fools’ Day joke!
Joke it may be, but in reality, there could be some truth behind this hoax article. Niagara Falls has actually been ‘switched off’ in the past, allowing for building or conservation works among other reasons. In recent times, the falls were ‘de-watered’ while an erosion study on the site took place in 1969, and in January new plans were announced suggesting that Niagara Falls may be turned off to build a new bridge.
While we’re only joking this time, why not stick around? Read on and learn more about some of the top things to do at Niagara Falls!
