It was a hot summer night, some 30 years ago. Charles Ryskamp and I had been to a dinner together, and it seemed too early to turn in. "There's a party we could go to in Brompton Square," said Charles, so off we went. You could hear the party from Knightsbridge as we walked up the square. Outside the house were some ghostly figures. Seen closer, these turned out to be Andy Warhol, drawing with chalks on the pavement, silently watched by two or three adoring flower-people. Inside, the house was packed, the music deafening, with flashing lights; we did not stay long. As we passed the rapt group outside, the drawing more advanced, Charles said, "Why don't you come back tomorrow with a pickaxe and lift that paving-stone? It would make your fortune."

In the age of fake Facebook and Twitter profiles for everyone from Malcolm Tucker to Cheryl Cole ("Ah man look at this pickcha a Ladee Gawgaw! Shiz lost it man!") has April Fools' Day lost it's caché? If everyone is in on the joke, has the fool finally lost its fun?

Dylan Jones: 'Elaine’s makes you think of Woody Allen, who shot the restaurant scene in 'Manhattan' here'
Saturday 06 March 2010
Elaine's. Just saying it makes you think of New York; of Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese and Norman Mailer, quarrelling over their early evening drinks and talking about money and girls. Makes you think of Woody Allen (who shot the opening restaurant scene in Manhattan here), makes you think of Warren Beatty, of Michael Caine and Jackie O. Makes you think of cocktails, of tortoni, spumoni, zabaglione and puntarelle, of large desserts and proper Upper East Side royalty.

What's the fitting expletive when you have accidentally caused a six-inch tear to a Picasso? Somehow I doubt it was "Oops!" that sprang from the lips of the woman who fell against The Actor, a rare canvas from the painter's Rose period, in the New York Met.

Like most recent university graduates, Nick McDonell, 25, is trying to figure out what he's going to do with his life. He has a Harvard degree, which gives him more options than most. But we might as well mention Twelve, the bestselling novel that he wrote when he was 17, and the two more he's written since then.

Art students who are invited to take a class in the hallowed halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York know better than to chew gum or chitchat. Nor do they need to be told not to touch. Pity the poor student then who lost her balance, toppled over and fell smack into a Picasso.

Senior British politicians tell David Cameron: When dead children are being washed up on beaches – it's time to act
Jeremy Corbyn calls Osama bin Laden's killing a 'tragedy' - but was it taken out of context?
