Fracking at Buckingham Palace, Alex Salmond adorning pound coins and One Direction banned from North Korea, it can only mean one thing: April Fools day.
In what has become a media tradition, some of the nation's biggest issues - as well as some smaller ones too - have been lampooned by publications.
Some - including the The Sun's 'exclusive' that fracking was to commence at the lawns of Buckingham Palace - were more obvious to spot than others.
Here are some that caught IBTimes UK's eye this morning:
