Practical Joke for Christmas

This practical joke was sent to me via email and I just busted out laughing. Not sure where this picture originated or who did this, but just had to share. Read the comments that came with the image, below:

Christmas Lights"Good news is that I truly outdid myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever. Great stories...but two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by. Second, a 55-year-old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder and almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (and she was not happy). By the way, she was just one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up into my yard."
I want to meet this person, I bet they pull funny pranks like this often

Unplugging the Mouse

I used to pull pranks on friends in computer class all the time, but one of my strongest and most fun jokes to pull on people was simple and didn’t get me in too much trouble (most of the time).

When you’re friend is away from their computer, just unplug the mouse from the back of the computer and wait for the entertainment.
Typically you get to watch about 5 minutes of frustration before they figure out what’s wrong. So funny!!

Change the Homepage

My roommate Alex used to tell me how he’d get a kick out of pranking his fellow classmates all the time.
One of the stories he mentioned was about one of his team members leaving their computer on while away from the desk. He changed the home page to an adult site, not of his orientation. When he got back and tried to go online, he turned all red and started acting frantically to remove the page.
I guess the whole team laughed about it. Pretty easy joke too….

The Cell Phone Hands-free Solution

I work for a delivery service in Spokane, WA. Not long ago they passed a law in our state banning cell phone use while driving, unless you use an earpiece or hand free device.
Since myself and most of the team rely on cell phones while on our routes, this affected all of us.
My buddy at work told me that he knew a guy in Canada that could get us all hands free devices at wholesale prices. Since hands free devices at the time were nearly $40-$50, I jumped at the opportunity.
My buddy told me he can get wholesale hand free devices as low as $0.10 each if I bought in bulk. Since I knew the law would be a reality soon, I told him to put me down for 200 of them – because you know I wanted to profit on that.
The next day when I got to the mail processing center, I saw my buddy and a bunch of co workers near our managers’ office. I asked my buddy if he had ordered the devices. He said yeah, you’re team is already using them.
I looked over at my co workers all smiling with their cell phones attached to their heads with rubber bands.
My buddy laughed at me and said, you fool – you just got pranked!!!!

Driving "OMG" Practical Joke

Back in the day when I used to run timber across country with my son in our semi, he used to always fall asleep up front while I was driving. This isn’t that big of deal since we rotated shifts all day and all across the USA, but we did have a bed in the back that he could have used – so I mostly blame this old joke on his own stupidity for staying in the front with ol’ dad, the king of gags. It’s very easy, fun and kind of evil : )

What I would do is wait until he was fast asleep in the front with me. As soon as I knew for certain he was asleep, I would hit the brakes lightly and yell at the top of my lungs “OMG – We’re Gonna Die!” He would jump up and I swear almost soil his drawers every time.
It’s not the nicest thing to do, but it’s a darn funny joke, a harmless but scary prank to my unwilling victim, and it kept me and him awake, driving safely for hours.

Unscheduled Meeting

Go around the office and tell random people that a particular person (e.g. your friend) wanted them to drop over at 11am - they will be surprised when 50 people drop around to their cubicle at once.

Company Takeover

Be very careful about this practical joke, it might not be accepted as a funny prank.
Start a rumor that your company is being taken over and loads of staff will be let go. Watch the onset of panic and rumors run rampant.

-Anonymously submitted
(and i don't doubt why)

More Office Pranks

Get access to another person's office, cubicle or room, and move the entire contents of it to another location or even just outside the door. Another variation is to turn all objects in the room the opposite direction.

Not sure if you want to try this, your janitor will not respect you in the morning: If your last one out of the office, empty multiple packs of Jello or Gelatine into the Toilets - the result next morning will be very interesting.

Switch the signs for Men's and Ladies toilets ... watch the fun

Know your friend well before trying this one. At break or at lunch-time, say to your friend, "Sorry to hear about your girlfriend. I suppose you had to find out about the affair sooner or later - the whole office knew about 2 months ago."

Use a 3M Post-it notes placed underneath someone's computer mouse - ensure that it covers the ball or the optical sensor on the bottom. When they go to use the mouse, it won't work! On the 3M Post-it simply write April Fool!.

Try this if you work at a restaurant, tell all employees that due to the new fair trade regulations, each serving of fries or chips must contain exactly 77pieces.

Your victim would be someone who doesn't log off when they leave their computer. Install Cracked LCD Screen Saver. Watch the video tutorial, it's easy to do and the video is quite funny, too.

Psychology Trick

Tell your pet they were adopted. Watch the shock on their face. - Ha, Jokes on You!

Sneeze Spray Prank

Get your hand wet, and find a worthy suspect (someone you know, like your friend or an understanding coworker). Start to fake a sneeze and then throw a spray of water on back of their neck. Know your friend before you try this, you may get punched.

The Walnut Prank

Take a walnut and crack along the central seam. Then put in different stuffing for the walnuts. Then super glue the two halves back together with one (or more) of the following in the middle:

  • Put an almond in the walnut shell - This will confuse the subject
  • A note that says "I am a walnut picker in the jungle and I am being held against my will. Please save me!"
  • Put in a fortune note, like a cookie fortune
  • Put corn starch into the shell. When the victim cracks the nut, it explodes in a white cloud.
  • Put a small toy inside a shell - like a Cracker Jack Toy
