’Tis the season to be pranky… fa la la la la la la la la. With the dawn of April comes the onslaught of shenanigans from friends and foes alike. What follows here is the ultimate in April Fools’ pranks. For your own sake and integrity, please exert enough brainpower to conjure up unique high jinks rather than merely ripping off these legendary laughers.
The Proposal Prank
Unless you’re a die-hard World of Warcraft nerd, chances are you’ve got at least one friend who’s in a serious relationship. Buy said couple a pair of tickets to the local sports team’s next home game (as well as one for yourself). Tell them it’s an anniversary gift or just a friendly gesture. Make sure you don’t waste all your money on the seats, because this next step will cost you a pretty penny.
Call up the stadium, field or arena’s office and arrange for a personalized message to be read on the jumbotron and announced by the PA. Ask for the message to read: (Insert girlfriend’s name), will you marry me? Love, (insert your friend’s name or nickname).
When the message is played, the girlfriend will go berserk, your buddy will probably vomit and all the while, you’ll be laughing uncontrollably as you witness a train wreck happen in person. Fun times…for about $500 and the possibility of never speaking to your friend again (after his lady dumps him for not actually wanting to get hitched).
Some Flair For Your Hair
What better way to prank your cohabitants than by attacking them in the one place they expect complete privacy and immunity?!?! The shower is not a place you’d typically venture into while your roomie’s washing up… unless, of course, you’re into that kind of thing (the Holy Grail of Pranks doesn’t judge).
While your roommate’s out for a little, sneak into his or her shower, unscrew the head of the nozzle. Pour in the contents of your favorite and most colorful powdered drink mix. Quickly screw back the shower head and be sure to get rid of any evidence of your intrusion.
The next time your buddy rinses up (and this may take a while), he or she will come out looking like a mid-90s punk vying for way too much attention. While pink powder mix is the best and brightest choice of all, purple, orange, blue and yellow will suffice, too. Just be sure to booby trap your room in case of retaliation!
Fire In The Hole!
Tired of always dealing with inaudible intercoms and bad attitudes every time you get fast food from the drive-thru? Well, enough is enough! Time to strike back with the ultimate revenge tactic for any avid burger-and-fries lover.
Next time you’re ordering at the drive-thru, be sure to ask for the largest quantity of drink they offer. When the attendee at the drive-thru hands you your order, check to see if you’re blocked in by another car. Once you’ve got a clear escape route, yell, “FIRE IN THE HOLE,” as loud as you can, chuck the contents of the drink through the window and take off like your name is Bo Duke and your car is the General Lee.
Sure, this may seem a little more mean-spirited than most pranks, but like we said, the Holy Grail of Pranks does not judge. So feel free to be an ass from time to time. It’s all in good fun… for you, at least!Share this Post[?]
