It's Raining Worms, Hallelujah!!

April Fool's Day joke? Maybe not. According to several sources, a Scottish teacher and his students were out on the pitch when dozens of worms suddenly fell from the clear skies above. Later, other teachers reported more clusters of fallen worms elsewhere around the school. While the fall, as forteans call such things, coincided with a recent weather change, the skies themselves were quiet and clear the day the worms came. Throughout history, as the famed anomalous Charles Fort noted, falls of fish, worms, frogs and even more bizarre things have been reported. Still, this account's proximity to that day which so infamously demands we all be made fools does caution some. I might be one of them.

Ick! I had heard about schools of fish picked up by water spouts and dropped over places, but that's weird.
