This fantastic holiday is right around the corner. What's the best prank that has been pulled on you or that you have pulled on someone else?

I had a friend call me one year to tell me she was getting married. She had all of the details nailed down.....church, reception hall, food, wedding party, etc. It wasn't until she told me that I would have to wear a metallic fuschia bridesmaid dress with puffy sleeves that I realized she was completely kidding.

Maybe not an April's fool prank per se, but this is always good clean fun. Wrap a rubber band around the trigger of your kitchen sink's hose sprayer and aim it appropriately. Your spouse will love it! Or not.

Hmm.Not April Fool's,but one of the best I pulled

My wife and I were on vacation in Key West.The hotel room(ground floor) bathroom looked out on a wooded area.My wife kept thinking she heard noises out there.I woke up early one morning and went for the newspaper.When I got back I removed all the hotel toiletries from the bathroom and opened the window slightly.

When my wife awakened I told her I was reading the local crime page(Johnny's bike was missing...it was found,all small stuff).we were laughing about the real stories,and then I told her there was a strange thief on the loose who was breaking into hotel rooms and stealing nothing but the toiletries(of course,I made this one up).It wasn't long before she got up to use the bathroom and found the toiletries missing and the window slightly open.I let it go until she was ready to report it to the desk.Good thing she has a sense of humor.

I always like to do something subtly evil at work, I'm very conservative so no one ever suspects me. The best was when I was working for a large construction company with many hard-core NASCAR fans. I cut and pasted some NASCAR logos into a document and created a fake press release. Did a little research and used all the correct officials, team members, etc. The subject: The Jeff Gordon Kidnapping

I printed off a few copies and just left them lying in the common areas.

My friend used to work part time for her dad's company. Most of the people in the office are hard core Clemson fans. She, her father, and a random handful of other employees are die hard South Carolina fans. A couple years ago, when USC beat Clemson in Clemson, my friend and her dad filled the boss's office with garnet and black balloons and changed his computer background to a picture of the final score board. Thankfully, the boss had a sense of humor.

Bob and Rhonda - love the pranks of which you speak! Good job.

I was majorly pranked about 20 years ago and it was the stuff of legends ... to this day, I still come into work April 1 to find reminders of this (sometimes). If I get my courage up I will share more details.

Not April Fool's but a great prank definitely. Along the same lines, I am a Maryland grad and absolutely hate Duke. I make no bones about the fact that I hate Duke in class. (I'm a teacher). One Monday morning I walked into my classroom and my entire Maryland shrine had been taken down and the whole room decorated in blue and white. Streamers, balloons, Duke logos, the whole 9 yards. What could I do but laugh?

The funny thing is I had a student two years prior who wanted to go to Duke, in fact it was the only school he applied to and I was convinced it was him. He got in BTW.
As it turned out it was two students I had that year. They returned all my Terps gear unharmed on the last day of school.

My buddy and his wife have 5 kids and he works his butt off to keep them all fed.

One year his wife got her pregnant friend to do one of the home pregnancy tests for her. He had a vasectomy done the previous year. She left the poor guy's head spinning for hours.

'Coupla years back I was working with a bunch of welders down in the furniture district of High Point, NC and constantly had to deal with pranksters as though every day was April Fools Day around there. I mean everyday someone was f'n with someone else for no GOOD reason.

Anyway, a few days earlier the biggest, ugliest one of 'em all (and THAT is a statement) was supposedly the one who filled the lock on my toolbox with either locktite or some other brand industrial adhesive.(rendering it useless)

For revenge, (and subsequently April Fools Day - Nite, April Fools eve I believed would have been too obvious)I waited till after the shop was closed, rode a scissor lift (that one of the installation crews had left out back) over to his work area, used a large piece of tube steel to "leverage" his box off the floor, lifting it with the scissor lift and commenced to welding the bastards tool box to the ceilling ("h" beams) in the shop.

The whole place was abuzz about what could have happened to his box and everything in it.

It was three days until it rained and the sound of the rain on the roof got someone to look up the 30 some odd feet and notice it.

I never let on, never told a soul - its still a mystery over there.

Tom, if you're out there I'm sorry - but you still suck!

Back when my brother was in college....he was quite the party animal - seriously, another level - I called my mom and said, 'Mom, I have some bad news: (long pause) I just finished bailing Josh out of jail - he had a DUI last night and I had to put a $10,000 bail on my Visa b/c there was property damage' - now, in my family, a DUI is just short of murder. (long pause) So, 'just before the tears started to flow, I dropped the 'APRIL FOOLS DAY' on her.

She wasn't real happy. I, of course, laughed me arse off....and then called my Dad at work and did the exact same thing.

About 8 years ago a bunch of us were in Charlotte for the Nascar race and upon returning to the hotel after dinner I mentioned to my buddy Stuart that I wish we had a way to move David's truck from the parking lot. Stuart says he knows were David kept the spare key, wrong thing to tell me, so I moved the truck to neighboring parking garage behind the hotel. We went on up to the room to party some more and about 20 minutes later the rest of the gang show up. David then notices his truck missing, calls us on the Nextel and we all don't know what the hell he's talking about. He searches the premises for about 30 minutes without a clue of what to do before he finally comes up to the room. Boy is he pissed, just as he's calling the cops we told him were it was. I'll never forget the look on his face as he's was picking up the phone.

Never mess with a joker......

Years back, this lady I worked with thought she'd embarrass me really good. She took my phone at work, took one of my speedial numbers (the State Highwway Dept, who I called a lot) and reprogramed it to an escort service number. But when I used it next, she wasn't around, so kind of backfired. I laughed when they answered. So I waited until she was at work the next day. I said to my boss (who was in on it) that I needed to call the highway dept. So I act like I dial......

here is my end of call:

Hello....

Who?

What?

Well that is interesting.

Well, since I have you on the line, what services do you offer?

By the hour?

Oh, that's not too expensive.....

Are they attractive?

Hmmmm...... well how about if I order TWO? Yes, at the same time.... How much?

Do they wear oufits if I want?

About this time, my rookie prankster co-worker, jumps up from her cubicle, runs up to my desk, all red faced, and yelled:

YOU"RE NOTHING BUT A CHEAP SLUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at me........

and then she stormed out of the room.....


me and my boss laughed so hard tears were running down our cheeks........

never mess with the pro's....................

Here's an old one for the machine shop guys:

Get an empty 'hand goop' plastic container...the ones with the hand cleaner. Clean it out and replace it with Crisco shortening. Fill it to the top and use a hair dryer to put a gentle heat to it so it looks like a freshly opened tub. Place it in the men's ( or ladies ) room and wait outside for the sparks to fly!!

I'm not much of an April Fools person........


But I will tell you the cruelest April Fools joke I had played on me.

I was working as the H.R. Mgr at the Courier Co I have been working at for 20 years. This was around 7 or 8 years ago.

I rent a nice house from my Mom and Stepdad. Through the years I have heard Mom say "Don't burn down my house". I guess she meant with a Joint or a cigarrete.

So I get to work at 9:00 am and Sheila the office mgr says "You need to call Art (my neighbor)..he just called and saidYour house is burning down. Instead of saying "APRIL FOOLS" real quick..she gave me about 5 minutes to wallow in agony..I was in shock.

The she said April Fools and I was like..."what in the hell did you do that to me for ?"

Anyway, after the panic attack went away...we got a good laugh about it.

Later that day I shoved her down a flight of steps at work and hollered "APRIL FOOLS".

Not really.

But I did get her back.

3 weeks later..Sheila's boss told me she was going to give Sheila a dollar an hour raise.

So I called Sheila into my office. The Company had been struggling a bit...so not many folks was getting raises and some were getting laid off.

I looked at her and said "Sheila I hate this, I don't know what to say". "I just want you to know it was not my idea". I could see the fear in her face and the tears forming in her eyes when she said "Your letting me go aren't you ?".

Then I said "It's just so hard to tell you"." I should have let Adrian(her boss) tell you."

Then I looked at her and said "Your getting a dollar an hour raise, Bitch"

"APRIL FOOLS"

to which she replied "You Bastard"
