10. Plastic Wrap the Toilet
This one is a favorite of students and roommates, and this is indeed a prank only for those with a high level of tolerance. Just like it sounds, stretch a piece of plastic wrap, which is invisible when pulled tight, across the toilet. No need to go into detail, but the prank definitely gets the attention of the victim!
9. Spare Change
This April Fool’s practical joke is old but it still works. Superglue some coins to the sidewalk or any spot that is busy with foot traffic. Then stand by and watch and giggle as people struggle to get the coins.
8. Baby Powder in the Hairdryer
Fill the hair drier with baby powder, just inside the blower, and when your victim goes to dry their hair, it will blow out a cloud of … well, baby powder. Shocking and quite the effect – and funny, but make sure that your victim has a good sense of humour; this prank is a messy one.
7. The Talking Pet
First, put a walky-talky some wear near the area of where your pet is laying. Go into another room with the other walky talky. When someone goes to pet the furry friend, blurt out something like…”Hey Pal! Get your grimy hands off me!” Watch the person jump back in surprise at their new talking pet.
6. Pull or Push
Switch the “Pull” and “Push” signs on a set of doors. Watch as people get confused trying to open the doors.
5. Do the Splits
Find a scrap of cloth. Place a dollar on the floor and stay nearby. When the victim comes by and bends down to pick up the dollar, rip the cloth loudly. Most people will reach back to see if they ripped their pants.
4. Cant Catch This
Attach a dollar bill to a piece of fishing line, which is invisible, and lave it lying on the sidewalk. Make sure there is some cover close by – a bush, or a car, or something that you can hide behind, then wait for your victim to come along. As soon as they reach for the money, reel in the line a few inches. Keep reeling until they realize they’re being had.
3. The Salty Brush
This one is actually quite harmless and very funny. It’s all about the facial expression, so make sure you are close by when the prank hits. Since this is about the morning tooth brushing, it is most appropriately aimed at someone in your home. Simply put salt on the victim’s toothbrush. Then stand by to watch the surprised look on their face.
2. The Office Phone Prank
If the victim has a phone with a hook that presses down when the handset is in the cradle, tape it down. When he or she answers a call it will keep ringing.
