When my sister and
I were kids, we would call random numbers
on the phone. When a person answered, I
would say (in a deep,
official-sounding voice)...... "If
you could identify the following
sound, you will win a beautifully gift-wrapped
box of Buckingham
China". I would then proceed to make
a loud, raspy sound of
passing-gas, with my mouth. About half the
people would immediately slam the phone
down. A few would become angry and admonish
us kids for playing with the phone. But
amazingly, some of them would actually attempt
to identify the sound! One guy replied,
"It's a horse's ass!". We would
then hang-up and dial another number. It
was great fun during a rainy day when we
couldn't play outside! That was before the
days of Caller ID. It might be a little
risky to try doing something like that today!
Here's an especially
cruel joke that I executed when I was fourteen
or so, and I really don't recommend that
anyone repeat it. I was spending the night
at a friends house and just as we settled
to sleep we realized that the next day was
April Fools. We had not planned anything,
and now it was too late to make any props.
Suddenly an idea came to us -- we'll rob
We set the alarm
for 5 am and put it under some blankets
so it wouldn't be too loud. At five we got
up and quietly moved a few dozen valuable
objects to the back of the garage. We took
all of the phones so that no one could call
the police before we had reveal the surprise.
Just to be safe we even disconnected the
phone line from house. To add a touch of
credibility we left a sliding glass door
ajar. Having done our evil work we went
back to sleep and waited for his hapless
parents to discover the grim news.
A few hours later
we awoke to total chaos. Everyone was frantically
running about the house surveying the damage
and checking for criminals behind every
door. To our delight my friends younger
brother was taking serious heat for leaving
the slider open. Turns out the poor kid
couldn't quite remember if he had locked
it or not, and his parents seemed to recall
him using it last.
Once the house was
deemed secure and my friends dad was about
to go next door to call the cops we let
out out best "April Fools!" The
mother was screaming mad, but somehow the
father thought it was funny as hell. Thank
God for that too, or they probably would
have killed us both. Now that I am a father
myself and worry about keeping my own kids
safe from intruders I can hardly believe
I would play such a cruel trick!
For April fools I thought it would be hilarious
if I painted on the rim of each cup and
glass at my work, the nail biters polish.
If it gets in your mouth, your stuck with
a very bitter taste. So, everything that
goes in the cup, naturally has a bad taste.
The polish won't come off until you take
finger nail polish remover to it. Everyone
thought our water suppliers had a chemical
leak in their building.

Push or Pull?
I remember not too long ago, about a year
I'm approximating. It was April Fool's Day
and my friend and I planned for this day
for a very long time (2 HOURS!!). We went
to a crowded supermarket that had an entrance
with no employees in sight. So... we opened
the door and where it said "Pull"
we pulled the sticker and stuck it on the
front of the door, and then we opened the
door again and where it said "Push"
we pulled that sticker as well and stuck
it on the other side. This plan wasn't my
idea, it was my friends and I had warned
her that people do not read the signs. I
WAS WRONG!! They do read it, surprisingly
(I guess it's just me).
We also rented a tinted van and we sat at
the back of the car (comfortably) with popcorn
and soda. Our first victim was an old woman
about the age of 60-70. She pulled the door,
and it didn't let her enter (obviously),
so she did it again, still nothing happened.
After about her 6th attempt she started
knocking, a young man came trying to open
to the door, but he himself was confused,
because he was pushing. So they were both
stuck. My friend and I were laughing so
hard the car started moving and we even
distracted her for a sec. Then finally someone
else came and solved their problem. It was
the funniest day of my life.
There was this bully in sixth grade that
everyone hated, but he managed to find special
time to pick on me. So one day I decided
to get back, I had gotten a chemistry set
a while ago so I took the beaker and stand,
in the beaker went; vinegar, toothpaste,
mustard, pickle juice, old milk, ketchup,
garlic powder, this arousal spray that smelled
like sulfur (Fart spray), and, I think,
some orange juice. The next day I brought
air freshener and the evil concoction (in
a tin lunch box with the stopper in it)
in my back pack. I stayed for extra help
so I would be the last to leave. After that
was over I went to his locker put the stinky
stuff in it took out the stopper and put
it on the stand. I spayed my lunch box with
the air freshener, as well as my back pack
and locker, then left. Did I mention it
was on a Friday in June?
When I was in the eighth grade at school,
we went on a trip to Quebec City. I was
in a room with 3 other girls named Sarah,
Tory and Beth. On the last night, Beth fell
asleep first. Sarah, Tory and I decided
that we couldn't let this opportunity go
to waste so we thought up a prank to play
on her. We took off her watch and set the
time to an hour ahead of the normal time
and we also set her alarm to 7:00 am (which
was what time we were supposed to wake up
the next morning). We put the watch back
on her arm and set our watch to wake us
up a bit earlier than hers.
The next morning, we woke up while Beth
was still sleeping. We quietly put all of
our luggage into the closet and made the
beds. We got rid of anything that could
have been ours. We went into the closet
and waited. Beth's watch woke her up. She
looked at her watch, then around the room.
She thought we had left without her! She
was scrambling around the room to get all
of her stuff together. It was the funniest
thing I had ever seen in my entire life.
We told her she wasn't late and that we
hadn't let yet. She was furious with us
but the look on her face was priceless.
My co-worker goes out to have a smoke every
hour on the hour and I was getting really
sick and tired of covering for him while
he has gone for 20 minutes at a time. So
one day while he was in a meeting I took
his cigarettes and dipped the filter ends
of them in Orajel. A friend of mine who
is also a smoker, told me that while they
where outside smoking my co-worker was complaining
that it must going to snow soon because
it was so cold outside his lips where going

Something To Chew On
I had a co-worker who constantly chewed
the ends of his pens. So, on April Fool's
Day several years ago, I purchased one of
those clear liquids you use to help kids
stop sucking their thumbs. The liquid is
a clear, odor-less liquid that has a distinctly
bitter taste. While the co-worker was at
lunch, I dipped the ends of all his pens
into the liquid and went back to my desk
to listen. I could hardly contain myself
when I heard him exclaim "Eww! What'd
you do to my pens!"
Space Shuttle Diverted
I work as an air traffic controller, and
about 4 years ago, one of our controllers
had the facility that works Edwards AFB
to force us a progress strip ( it is the
information we get on inbound aircraft)
telling us that the B747 that carries the
shuttle on it's back was diverting to our
airport because of winds. He also had called
one of our airport hangers and asked them
to have it park at a certain location when
Well the supervisors were all ready to
handle this and notified the airport management.
Well the joke became more public and the
city called in workers on overtime to have
the ramp swept for the arrival. Before the
controller could call off the April Fool
Joke, he had egg all over his face.
Ok, i dont suggest actually trying this
because i got into a lot of trouble for
it, but just for the laugh i thought it
was worth it.
Me and this girl at school have regularly
disagreed about many things and she started
rumors about me and a guy. The day i found
this out i asked her why she had done this
and she denied the whole thing. I told her
that she could have the guy and that i hoped
they make monkey babies together but be
sure to send me a picture (by the way, the
girl was ugly, resembling a monkey and the
guy had long hair also resembling a monkey).
So anyways, i got an idea to get revenge
on her. I got on the net and found a picture
of her on her website so i copy / pasted
that picture along with a picture of a monkey
baby on a sheet of paper and wrote : "Cheerleader
gives birth to monkey baby! Should she still
make the squad?" I took a copy to school
and one of my guy friends made over 100
copies and handed them out to everyone at
The prank worked but the dumb guy that
i got to make the copies left a paper in
the copy room so the principal found out
and me and the guy both suffered through
2 days of ISS! So if your gunna do this
then make sure to be real smart about it
In our school everything was built cheap.
Including our lockers. It only took a few
days for people in our high school to realize
that all we have to do is lift up and slightly
hit the lockers with our palms for them
to open. This has become very useful to
everyone for passing notes and such with
friends that we dont see that often
during school hours.
Anyway, my best friend and me are somewhat
mischievous and love April Fools Day. We
decided since the lockers open so easy to
have a little fun with them. We collected
all of our close friends (people who wouldnt
be upset for messing with their stuff) locker
numbers without them noticing. Once we got
their locker numbers we stayed after school
on the Monday, the day before April Fool's
Day and took out every thing in everybodys
locker. We took all their books and every
little sticker and just laid them in the
hall with a piece of paper to remind us
whose stuff it was. Once we did this we
put everything of one persons in a different
persons locker. In the lockers with the
other peoples stuff we left a little
sticky note describing the person with their
It was the funniest thing watching about
50 different people open their lockers with
stuff that didnt belong to them. Everybody
in our "click" figured out it
was Jodi and I because we were the only
ones who didnt have other peoples
stuff in our locker. They are all planning
a huge thing on us. We are still waiting
for this years April Fool's Day!
The Long Pee
My father's favorite prank was one he pulled
at a party many years ago. The guest bath/powder
room was just next to the room with the
party, so it was possible to hear when people
used the toilet. My father went in with
a hidden bottle filled with water. He slowly
poured it into the toilet, making sure it
took a very long time.
After a little while people's conversations
began to drop off as
everyone became aware of the ongoing sound
and stopped to listen. Finally the entire
room was silent.
I worked in an Accountants office for just
over 2 years in there IT department.
A few years ago on the night before April
1st I set-up my 2 pranks.
1st prank: I glued the handset of a colleagues
phone to his phone. That morning I made
sure I got to work before him. As soon as
he sat down I snuck to a adjacent desk and
dialled his extension. Sure enough as he
went to answer he proceeded to lift the
entire phone to his ear.
2nd prank: The night before April 1st I
chose a few unsuspecting users keyboards
and popped a few random keys off. I put
them back on the keyboard (obviously in
the wrong places). You'd be amazed at the
number of people now days who can't touch
type. Looking at these users and the confused
look on there faces as they attempted to
type there passwords in was classic.
My favorite pratical
1. TP a car. Make colored lips, eyes, etc.
& give the car a face.
2. Flame someone (put 100 pink flamingos
in the front yard).
3. Send flowers to yourself from a famous
4. Use a computer graphics program to type
up a really wild phone bill.
Let Them Eat Cake!
I learned this one from my mother.
For a home-made birthday cake, frost a cellulose
sponge (make sure it has small holes for
easier frosting). Decorate it as you would
a regular cake. Give your victim a plastic
knife, they'll never be able to cut into
it! Their expression is priceless!
Tired Old Joke
One year my brother and cousin decided
to fool the drivers on the road. We lived
on a ranch off of a graveled road. oft times
there were holes in the road that would
make things on trucks bounce off. My brother
and cousin, took a old tire and greased
it up to make it look shiny and new. They
tied a wire onto it, and put it just off
They hid in the brush off the road. When
the cars coming down the road would shine
on the tire, the people would stop. They
would go to pick it up and they would pull
a little, then the person would try to pick
it up again. they would pull again. by that
time the person from the car would try to
catch the boys. They ran down the field
to keep away. They did this to many of the
travelers that night. Having a great laugh
as they did it.
Don't Try This At Home
I have a great pay back (all in good
fun) prank I played on a buddy of mine
with a giant axe.
