Put marshmallows under all four corners of a computer keyboard.

Take the batteries out of the tv remote.

Go to the pet section of the grocery store and get a few mice. Place the mice in the refrigerator, in an ice cube tray, in the bath tub, under the bed cover..lol!

The best one I’ve heard yet was done by George Clooney. He sneaked into his friend’s trailer and fastidiously dipped his cat’s litter box every day for a week.

Once the friend had his cat at the vet, being run through a battery of tests, and on laxatives; he let the friend (and the cat) off the hook.

A couple of years ago, I set autocorrect in Word to replace a coworkers name with “Matt The Dork Brown.

Took him several months and god knows how many sent docs to figure it out. :-)

It wasn’t April Fools Day, but I once set a coworker’s screen saver to the blue screen of death and a 10 second countdown to complete system failure, including a warning that all data stored on the computer would be lost. She fell for it completely. You should have heard the shrieking when it activated. Very gratifying.

Well to us down here that was yesterday - but it’s like 4am 2April here. I didn’t believe anything I read then and I’m not going to believe stuff in the US or wherever until it’s past. I got fooled too many times. LOL’s

All daddy has to do is slide the glasses off the table as is onto a tray. Take them over to the sink and slide them off.

I, uh, know folks who would probably like their donuts 'different' ... they even put mayo on their fries and baked potatoes:

Which reminds me, I'm out of Dunkin's

Why not just freeze the water in the glasses and let it thaw upside down?

Along those lines I like to take a screen shot of someone’s screen. Then, set the screen shot as the back ground issue and make sure to hide the windows bar to autohide. First, they think it’s the mouse battery, then, the keyboard, then panic when they restart the computer and the same thing is going on.

Swapping left and right mouse buttons are pretty fun as is reversing the direction of travel.

Autocorrect pranks are always fun.

Tape auto fresheners under desks.

Spring loaded package peanut traps in file cabinets. This one takes some extra hardware and planning.

ALWAYS lock your computer when you work with nerds.

Back in the early 90’s I worked at a tech startup. You didn’t dare miss work or else there was no telling what your computer was going to do when you turned it on, and what sort of booby traps would be awaiting you in your cubicle.

Those were fun days. I missed work one time and upon my return I found that someone had installed Windows 95 on my computer. The horror!

We’ve actually done the caramel onion thing.

My best wasn’t April fools but when some friends were on vacation, we built a wall across their hallway. Studs, drywall, mud, paint. The works.

When I was working at the Palo Alto Research Center Advanced Development Lab in El
Segundo, a bunch of us walled off the boss’s office, and when he arrived, there was just a
blank wall, very professionally dry-walled and painted.

He made us open it up again, and we had filled it with balloons.

I am still giggling. He was a good sport. Dr. Horace Moore, my favorite boss of all time.

We fixed everything before the day was out.

On weekend watch on my ship, it was time to wake the kid who had the mid watch. Several of us dressed up in the NBC (nuclear/chemical/biological) gear and woke him up by saying shaking him and saying “OH MY GOD! WE FOUND ONE ALIVE!”

Bummer we didn’t have youtube back then, it was funny as hell.

How? The glasses are upside down on what looks like a table. I’ve seen this done many times and also pulled the same trick once. The glass is filled. A tray put on top. Hold the glass and tray together and turn it over. Go to a surface, counter, table and place the edge of the tray against it and slide the glass onto the surface. Repeat procedure in opposite when removing water glass. Best thing to do is wait until the kids return, stand them in front of the table. Pick up the glass letting the water spill out. Tell the kids to now go mop it up.

Ranch goes well on a baked potato, too. And add steamed sweet peas!

WAYS lock your computer when you work with nerds.

I've always said be nice to the geeks you work with. They are capable of creative and inventive ways of taking revenge.

Heard a Thanksgiving prank on the radio. While a new bride wasn’t looking, her husband slipped a cornish game hen into the middle of the turkey. Come dinnertime she was horrified to think she had roasted a pregnant turkey.

I didn’t know it, but my buddy’s toolbox was behind the wall. He had to cut the wall apart with a steak knife. We were in the backyard trying not to laugh. Yea, we got video of the whole thing.

Best coworker gag

A guy took an advanced training school. When he got back, he wouldn’t shut up about how beneficial it was.

I made up a letterhead and wrote a letter from the association President telling my friend that they found evidence of cheating on his exam and they were removing his certification. We had HR, a Director and a VP in on the gag. His reaction was insane. Videotaped that one too.

You don’t think we played that on the big screen at the national sales meeting do you? Of course we did.

Several years ago, the switch to daylight savings time occurred on the April 1-2.

One of the radio DJ’s made a big announcement after hyping it for awhile that we were going to stay on standard time.

He began taking calls from confused callers. I was in the middle of a brake job or something and just thought “whatever I will deal with it later when this mess is over.”

After a few minutes it dawned on me what was going on.

An idea struck me and I called up and said; “I thought this was some kind of joke but I turned on CBS and Dan Rather was talking about it and it must be true.” This was a few months after Rather was fired.

He put me on air as soon as that song was over. :-)

That donut gag reminds me of the pastry gag in National Lampoon’s Van Wilder.

I did that to my supervisor at B of A in the late 90s. Only I just replaced his name with “Bozo”. He responded by filling my overhead credenza with popcorn.

Which I responded to by emptying his desk on a Sunday, lining his drawers with painters cellophane and turning all four of them into an aquarium.

His response was to have the regional head counsel call me into a meeting with the VP of our department to accuse me of swearing at a vendor....which I had, so I couldn’t deny it - in jest (she and I would later date for a couple years) After 5 minutes of me sweating, they couldn’t keep from laughing.

We kind of toned down after that: we both knew one of us was going to get killed.
