April Fools Pranks

 With April Fools coming up tomorrow I thought I would post a few classic pranks that you may want to try.

Q) Do you know who played the first April fools prank?
A) The first April fools prank was from a novel hundreds of years old where a fox played a prank on a chicken emperor.

Since that time April fools has morphed into a day where the office jokster or class clown's practical jokes or general foolishness is accepted.

Sorry the day is not a holiday...The day is marked by the commission of good humoured or funny jokes, hoaxes, and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, teachers, neighbors, work associates, etc.

Here are a few classics:

Two Black Eyes

Put a dark substance around the eyepiece of a pair of binoculars (we recommend dark eye-shadow instead of the black shoe polish used in the classic prank of yesteryear). Hand them to your victim and point out something for them to look at in the distance. Then laugh at the dark circles around their eyes.

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.

Door Ambush

This is the most classic and simple prank ever. Balance a small disposable cup of water on the top of a partially open door. Then wait for the splash!

Toilet Trouble

Put a piece of bubblewrap under the toilet seat so when your victim sits, they are surprised by a loud POP!

I Hope you enjoy you enjoy your Aprils Fools day
