April Fool's Day is only four days away, and you know what that means: Be prepared to prank or be pranked. Here are some classics. I can attest to several of these, since I've either witnessed them personally, or pulled them off myself...
TRICKS TO PULL AT HOME
No, not that kind. Get up really early and sneak into your victims bathroom. Fill their hair dryer with baby powder. When they turn it on, their head will be pure white just like an old person.
LIFE SAVER SHOWER
Before one of your family members takes a shower, remove the shower head and place a Life-Saver candy in it. Replace the shower head with the candy trapped inside. As the person takes a shower, they will not notice anything -- but when they get out and start to dry off, their towel will stick to them. Then they'll get back in the shower to rinse off. Rinse. Repeat.
The night before you intend to pull this prank, fill a cereal bowl about 2/3 of the way with water and place it in the freezer. Offer to make your victim cereal in the morning. Grab the bowl. Pour their favorite cereal over the top of the ice, and serve.
THE NEW LOOK (MR. FUN TESTED)
Take a black Sharpie marker and draw a mustache on your sleeping victim. If you really wanna F with them, draw a set of eyes on their eyelids, too. When they look in the mirror first thing in the morning, they will freak out. The downside is, they will also come looking to beat the living shit out of whoever did this to them, so be sure to lay low.
YOU GOT BALLS
Pack as many ping pong balls as you can get in a kitchen cupboard (at home or work). High cupboards are best.
TRICKS TO PULL AT THE OFFICE
FOILED: THE CUBICLE OF THE FUTURE (MR. FUN TESTED)
Buy several boxes of aluminum foil and cover every square inch of your co-worker's cubicle (see photo at the top of this post). Of course, other materials could be used, such as fake fur, Post-It notes, or plastic wrap. Hell, you could even use bubble wrap, but that shit's expensive.
HELLO? HELLO? (MR. FUN TESTED)
"Hello? Hello?" is my second-favorite office prank (my number-one favorite being "I Am Gay"... see below...) Before your co-worker/victim arrives at their desk, layer three or four small pieces of clear Scotch tape over the slits in the mouthpiece of their telephone handset. You must be sure there is solid blockage on the slits. Place the handset back in the cradle and walk away. Anyone who tries having a phone conversation with your victim will not be able to hear them speaking, and they'll keep saying "Hello? Hello?" Eventually, they hang up! The phone will keep ringing, and you'll hear your victim become increasingly enraged with frustration! Make sure you are within earshot as this is going down, because it is hilarious!
RINGIE-DINGIE (MR. FUN TESTED)
If a co-worker has a phone with a hook that presses down when the handset is in the cradle, tape it down with clear Scotch tape. Every time they go to answer a call, it will just keep ringing.
GOOEY EAR (MR. FUN TESTED)
Another great phone-based prank! Slather a big glob of Vaseline petroleum jelly over the earpiece of your co-worker's telephone handset. The first time they pick up the phone, PWOIK!!
DEAD MOUSE (MR. FUN TESTED)
Stick a Post-It note under your friend's mouse so that the paper leaf covers the mouse ball - the mouse will no longer work! Align so that the sticky part of the note doesn't touch the ball. Costs next to nothing to do, and doesn't cause any damage.
Carefully pop off a few of the keys from the victim’s keyboard. Switch them around and replace them. Loads of confusion!
Find a box about the size of a cake and cover it with frosting, making it look like an actual cake. Put the "cake" out in the office kitchen, or wherever people leave free food. Sit back as one of your co-workers tries to cut a slice.
You will need a funnel, a coin, a couple of friends and a male victim. Start playing the "Funnel Game" with your friends as your male victim approaches. Explain to him that this game is a game of skill that involves putting the funnel down the front of your pants and balancing the coin on your nose with your head tilted back. Tip your head forward to let the coin drop into the funnel. The victim will ask to play too. Tell him to put the funnel in his pants and to put his head back so you can balance the coin on his nose. When he puts his head back, punch him in the nuts. Run.
PANTS RIP (MR. FUN TESTED)
Find a scrap of cloth. Place a dollar on the floor and stay nearby. When the victim comes by and bends down to pick up the dollar, rip the cloth loudly. Most people will reach back to see if they ripped their pants.
