Parrot Air Drone Postal -- April Fool's Day, 2013
The French postal service announced it was teaming with drone-manufacturer Parrot to experiment with the use of drones to deliver mail in Auvergne, in south central France. The new delivery service would be called Parrot Air Drone Postal.

A team of 20 postal workers would control the drones via an app on their smart phones.

A number of American news sources, including the San Francisco Chronicle and Business Insider, reported the announcement as fact.
