Your best April Fools pranks...


Spaceman Spiff

Recommended Posts

A couple years ago I texted all my friends that I was pregnant.

Quite the mindblower, I must admit.:silly:

I think the best one pulled on me (and on us all) was last year when ES automatically went to the Giants site. I was freaking out for hours, even had hubby about to take my computer apart!:ols:

Not April Fools day specific, but I have several I've enjoyed over the years. I'll just do one for now to avoid dominating the thread.

Get six-pack of beer with dark bottles where you can see the liquid is there, but can't tell color. Open one of them, drink a small amount, then fill it back up with red food coloring. When mixed, food coloring is tasteless. Invite people over for beers. Graciously offer to get everyone a beer, take all the tops off, give the mark the pre-prepared beer. Try not to laugh while the mark drinks beer. Start busting a gut when everyone freaks out because the mark has teeth that are stained red, a red tounge, red drool, thinks he's bleeding internally, etc. Then admit to the prank before anyone makes a freaked-out phone call for an ambulance. This was a favorite of mine in college. I would use blue food coloring for ****s and giggles sometimes. This did backfire once though...I don't remember what it was but the food coloring didn't mix well with one particular beer, and the bottle erupted like one of those elementary school science fair volcanos. The guy I gave it to, already drunk, was just staring at it (while it was getting all over him and the floor, mind you) going "Why is my beer red?" in a vacant, questioning voice.

I poured flour in the back of my wifes hair dryer one year after seeing something similer online. It wasnt a well thought out plan though. I should have anticipated her reaction and had a replacement hair dryer already purchased... an exact model replacement.... and I should have done it on a friday night when she didnt have to work. She got out of the shower before work one morning, and she was incredibly mad. I didnt think that move through. She had to take another shower before work, was late, and had to go to work with wet hair... and I had to go buy her a new one... and then i had to return it and get her the exact same model i had put the flour in.

I had someone call a friend of mine and told him his car payment was way past due and that we needed to know where it was so we could pick it up that day. Sounds mean but this guy had pulled some classic pranks previously and was not happy to have it returned to him. The girl who called did a fantastic job of keeping it together and we had all the info to back her up. lol. It went for a good ten minutes before we switched to speaker as the manager informed him it was indeed April 1st and the car was being repo'd. The girl even told him at one time that there was no need to speak to a manager because he wouldn't be helping him make his payment, lol. Also why did you buy such an expensive car if he couldn't afford it, lol.

I worked in an auto repair shop in my late teens, and worked with a prankster British guy. He's let air out of one of my front right, and rear left tires making the car almost undriveable, put my lunch in the freezer, etc - all in good fun.

One day he was using the bathroom, and outside next to the bathroom was a huge industrial shop sink. I took a big piece of chain, and quietly cinched it to the bathroom door handle, and then to the shop sink. When he was done, he tried opening the door, and noticed it wouldn't open (and the fact that I was laughing my ass off). This guy was about 6'4", and kept pulling on the door. He wound up pulling the sink off of the wall, and water went everywhere.

We spent our lunch that day going to home depot (may have been hechingers now that I think about it) and replacing everything - funny as **** :ols:

dude. :doh:

pranking your wife just seems like a bad idea on its face, no matter what you end up doing or how well you think it through. Even if it was a Friday night, before we had kids, and I had a replacement hair dryer, my wife still would have been incredibly pissed.

Yeah, it was def before our daughter was born.. I believe we were still only engaged at the time. Normally we have a playful dynamic like that so it wasnt a bad idea necessarly, just not well executed. or thought out.... but yeah, learning experience on my end. She has pranked me since, but i havent pranked her back.

believe me, she is serious with pranks.... and I mean dishing them out.

We had a cop at our HS in charge of security or something(he didn't really do anything though), and I was pretty cool with him(him and my dad were old friends) so we worked together on a prank. He came to my Spanish class and told me he got a tip that someone in the class had drugs, and I had a bag of grounded up chalk in my shoe that looked like crack. He "busted" me and escorted me out of class. We then spent the remainder of the period in his office eating donuts and watching some soaps. After the period ended I went back to the lockers like nothing happened and everyone was buzzing about my "arrest." It was quite epic. :ols:

Contributing to the delenquincy of a minor. Terrible. haha.

Was the teacher in on it as well ? Pretty funny...in some ways, but in other ways you get locked into a stereotype by kids that tell their parents. "I don't wan't you hanging out with that kid" type of thing.

The teacher wasn't in on it at all. :ols:

I had that class again two days later, and I just told her that it was one big misunderstanding and the cops let me go after grilling me. Can't remember what I told her exactly though this was like over 10 years ago.
