I think my mom had it comming. From all the things that she did to me. She knows how scared I am of spiders. One day I came home from school and she had put little plastic spiders in the fridge because I always look in the fridge after a hard day of learning. I about cried. I was only 7 or 8 at the time. when I was just 7 I had fallen in the tub and busted my head open. My mom decided it would be fun while I was sleeping to put fake blood on my pillow where my head was, When I woke up, I freaked and the pillow was stuck to my head. So yeah, My mom has had it comming to her for a while. But I don't know what to do this year though.

Did this one to a buddy of mine.

Props Needed:
1) A big ugly rock or brick...

2) Some broken auto glass. Pick it up off the street or ask a friendly wrecker driver for some. They usually have a bucket full of it on the back of the wrecker and will be more than happy to give it away.

3) An extra key to your friends car.

While they are away from their car, perhaps in a mall shopping, open their car door, put the key in the ignition and roll down their window. Put the big ugly rock or brick on their front seat and sprinkle their front seat and the ground right next to their car door liberally with broken auto glass. Take the key and don't forget to lock the car door back up. Then all you have to do is wait and enjoy the fun!

Bonus idea: Video tape their reaction so you can live it over and over again and ridicule them for many years. I still have the tape from when I did it and it's funny everytime I watch it!

I like that one! I've always been a prankster with friends/family.

One must be careful and consider consequences as well. As a High School Sophomore the class thought it funny to rig one of those fireworks that go off when you pull two strings apart. With explosive rigged to the desk drawer, teacher walked in and was about to take attendance, opened desk drawer to get a pen, and it went off.

She was rushed to the hospital with a heart attack. I thank God to this day that it wasn't my idea. However we were all aware of it and thus accomplices? You betcha. No not good.

Some people have a strange sense of humor....

Lyndell! That broken window prank is a good one! A bit elaborate in setup but well worth it! I wish that one had been played on me when my window was broken. In my case it was broken for real. Typical crackhead going after a nice stereo. Do you know what a window on a foreign car and stereo costs to replace? It's a whole lot more than it takes to get another vile of crack. I would of prefered the prank as you can imagine. What a hastle.

Another classic is to set all the clocks ahead by about 15 - 45 minutes - INCLUDING wrist watches! It takes some prep but it's kinda funny having people show up early for everything!

There was a contraption that was wired under the hood of a car.
When start the thing would whistle and yellow smoke would billow out.

I remember putting glass capsules fill with some stinky, rotton egg smelling stuff under a pallet/skid that was raised on a pallet jack. I did this next to the supervisors desk. When someone came and dropped the jack .... UGH! I almost got fired for that one.

While I never used this on April Fools day, the old Rattlesnake Eggs in the envelope freaks people out.

My Mom got me good one time.
She hollers to mw. "Come here, quick! There's a camel in our yard!".
Yea, I fell for it. Smile

That prank with the foil is incredible! It gets my vote as the BEST prank in this topic so far.

Here's a prank I did back in the 80's...

Me and a buddy waited till nightfall, nice and dark out you know, we called all of the neighbors in a four block radius. We knew them all due to our paper routes.

Well, we called them and said in a professional sounding manner that we were the local electric company and that we were experiencing temporary power surges for the next copule hours and it is advisable that they turn off and unplug all electrical appliances and to shut off the breaker box in the house.

One by one every house in the hood went dark, funny thing is it was superbowl night. We watched as each house shut down it's electricity, the t.v.v was the last thing to get shut off.

Within the hour people started turning on their lights and stuff, we got 'em.

No, they never found out, me and my friend were good at this typr of thing, heres another...

I've been able to do announcer type voices for years and I would call up people randomly and pretend to be a disk jockey from K.I.S.W. Seattles best rock & roll raido station.

I would then go into a spiel about prerecording them and their reactions, this was to be played at a different time on the radio...we would then go thru the recording session and boy these people would act it up! Screams of joy and what not...

I easily convinced them they had won $25,000 in some contest...one lady said she was gonna quite her job, I hope she didn't.

Anyways I did this off and on for awhile when I was a kid.

One I always liked used those snappers that pop when you step on them. I put one under each little foot on the toilet seat. When my wife went in and sat down...

Well, let's just say that it wasn't safe in the house for a while after that. She got me back in kind (she taped them to the inside of the medicine cabinet so it went off when I shut them) and for a while pretty much everything in the house was boobytrapped. We eventually had to declare a truce.

But it was a wonderful time rigging up everything we could find to "get" each other.

For the price of a rubberband, you can pull off a great little prank.

You know that squirter hose next to the kitchen sink? Rubberband it in the "trigger squeezed" position and then aim it carefully toward the spot where your victim will stand when turning on the water.

Now that's entertainment!

Yah I did that last year but I used scotch tape. although my mom got me back. I have a very nice mexican rosy boa snake and the cage is in my room so she took the lid off while I wasn't home and put him in an old cage in her room so when got home......i went to my room glanced over and relised the lid off and my snake was gone. so I went and asked my mom about it and she said I must have left the lid off and he ran(slithered)away. man that realy upset me. then, you guessed it APRIL FOOLS!

Here's one I did to my teenage stepdaughter who is mortally afraid of spiders...

I brought home a tarantula for my 14 yr. old stepson, it had a nice little cage. I told him to keep it in his room. Now the whole time my stepdaughter is freaking out and says she'll not live in this house with the giant spider in the room next to hers.

A day later, before bedtime my stepson says the cage is empty and he can't find the tarantula. My step daughter starts to freak out we teased her for a while before I let her know I took it back to the petstore. I am Evil!!!

This was a plan hatched by me and my stepson, it was my idea and he played along perfectly...I guess anythings possible when it entails scaring your sister.

Turn all the clocks in the house back 1 hour and watch your spouse/children get out of bed early. It really works well when its during a work day and they arrive an hour early.

Today's evil pranks: Bathroom Fun!

1) Remove the shower head and put as many sugar cubes in there as you can, but still allows the water to run through. Instead of getting clean, they get sticky-er... To make this prank last even longer - for at least two or three showers, try rock candy or a lollypop if it'll fit. You may also want to carry it a step further and soak their towel in sugar water, dry it, and replace it where they normally hang their towel. Then sprinkle a few sugar granuals in the crevices of their hairbrush. BONUS IDEA: use a beef bullion cube instead of sugar! HE HE HE! <evil laugh>...

2) Steal their razor. Put a drop or two of red food coloring on the blade where it cant be seen too easily. Allow the drops to dry (like in the old style tea kettle trick). When your victim starts to shave and re-activates the food coloring, they will suspect initially that they have cut themselves badly and then be trying to figure out how to get the red food coloring off of their face.

3) Squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube, but only so far that you can manipulate the tube to allow the toothpaste to go back into it. While it's sticking out of the tube, salt it thoroughly! While on the subject of brushing the teeth - If you spread out the toothbrush bristles, a bit of red food coloring dried on the base of the toothbrush might create some un-due panic as well...

4) Replace their stick deodorant with a carefully sculpted piece of white cheese. I suggest a hard cheese like Romano...

I used to be a radio announcer in my teens in australia...dont ask how long ago! once, we pretended to have uri geller on ...bending spoons, telling peoples future etc. it was me using a fake accent over the phone. we got a number of phone calls from people saying clocks had fallen off walls, one lady claimed she saw a church clock start that had not worked for 50 years....quite scary really....

one called claimed to have made contact with a dead relative during the phone in.

we fooled them without even really trying! that's cold calling for you...!!

And I thought I knew them all. CLASSIC!

The aluminum foil thing is great. I've used a variation of that for years, and it's gonna sound really stupid, but you HAVE to try this. When your freinds or relatives go out to dinner at the high- priced ritzy restaurant for their anniversary or that once per year special occasion, find out where and when they are going. You'll need:

1) A way to get into their car

2) Newspaper

3) LOTS of balloons in various sizes, as many as possible already inflated (put them in big trash bags and use a van or SUV to get there)

4) Several helium balloons

As soon as your victims have gone inside the establishment, unlock their car and tape newspaper to the INSIDE of all the windows. Close all the doors except for the drivers side, and proceed to literally stuff the entire inside space of the car with the balloons. We're talking filled to the roof. Make sure to get every available spot from floor to ceiling, including floorboards, under seats, etc. When you get close to the door, put your last bag of balloons (or two) inside, close the door most of the way, and pull the bags out the crack, leaving the balloons inside. Now, when your unsuspecting aquaintances return to their car, they'll see the newspaper on all the windows and immediately know that something's up. BUT, the only way to find out is to open the door, and that's where the real fun begins. The balloons will spill out in massive quantities, blowing away in every direction. The beauty of this is that these people are at a really upscale place and don't want to make a scene, but have no choice. And you can forget about getting into the car and making it drivable without some serious work. If you can arrange it so that the helium balloons are right next to the door, they'll fly up into view as well, telling the world to "look over here". Again, this sounds dumb at first, but trust me on this- and make sure to record the event from a good hiding spot!
