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.
