As a whole company full of people who love to party, it should come as no surprise that we like to joke around a bit. And by a bit, we mean a lot. Remind us to tell you about the time Kyle built a giant contraption just to pie our intern in the face. Or actually, don’t – we don’t especially want HR to start breathing down our necks (even if they’re the biggest pranksters of all).
All of this means that we enjoy a well-crafted April Fools’ Day prank as much as anyone. Since we’re excellent pranksters, we’ve been planning our pranks for the better part of a year. But if you treat April Fools’ more like Mother’s Day (in the “Holy smokes, Mother’s Day is TOMORROW??!?” sense), then don’t worry! Just click on any of the links below to get your hands on a quick and easy prank to pull on unsuspecting friends / coworkers / family / innocent people sitting next to you on the bus.
Real enough to cause a bit of panic at first glance, but not fake enough to cause actual panic, Fake Doggie Doo is the classic early-morning gag. Imagine the feeling of your heart momentarily stopping when you open your door in the morning to see what appears to be a freshly pooped poop right in front of your feet?
And to be honest? This one works the best if you don’t actually have a dog.
What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm! But while the implications of eating a worm is, well, terrifying, the momentary shock of opening a box or pencil case or drawer to find a big, juicy, fake worm is much easier to get over, no therapy required!
Buy these early. Learn the way of the finger trap. Learn how to instantly disengage your fingers from its deceptive grasp. And then give the trap to a son, a daughter, a young cousin, anyone really, and watch them struggle to break free. Are we evil? Maybe a little. Is it hilarious? You bet.
Your victim goes to the restroom. You notice, and spring into action. You hang this gloriously large bat from a pre-prepared hook in front of the door and dash back to your desk. The door opens, and your victim gets a facefull of rubber bat. They scream. You laugh. Good prank, bro.
… It has just occurred to us that most of our pranks involve our victims opening things. We should learn more tricks.
It doesn’t get more classic than this. No matter how complex the stratagem, how intricate the machination, nothing beats the simple brilliance of slipping a whoopee cushion onto your target’s seat and waiting for them to sit down and emit that satisfying sound of flatulence. Seriously, if you’re pinched for time, do the whoopee cushion. It’s hilarious.
Oh, and if you have been clicking everything… no, your browser isn’t broken. It’s just April Fools’.
