Don't know if this counts as "best" but when I was in high school, the Home Ec class (which I was not a member of) put some acid into an omelette and gave it to the asst principal and his secretary.

Several kids got suspended/expelled for that one.

Running a totally unqualified and Marxist individual knowing that his skin color would get him elected president.

I worked with a guy who set up a romantic and luxurious bath experience for his wife, with lots of bubbles in the tub, the tub surrounded by candles, flowers, and chocolates, and a glass of wine. Of course, when she got in it was ice water. I have no idea what was going through his head.

Junior College.
Putting a large clear sheet of 3 mil plastic on the floor of our professor’s office; putting baggies on the chair legs, furniture and desk legs, taping the edges to the wall then filling it with water to 4 or 5 inches and stocking it with goldfish.
WE then helped him tear it down later, but it was wortth it.

Awful! How did that work out for him?

One of the better ones I’ve seen was at college. I went to a Christian college that had a chapel. One day some students stole all the cafeteria knives and put them in the spine of the hymnals. When the pastor called everyone to stand to sing hymn 101, over a thousand knives came clinking down at the same time.

Taking one of those music attachments found in cheap Christmas cards and sticking it under someones car seat. When the guy sat in the seat, the music started playing. When he got out - it stopped. He had a heck of a time finding it. He had to drive all the way home listening to that music, because it was too dark to find anything without good lighting.
It was a harmless prank, but that music can get irritating real quick.

Where I used to work we would pool our money and buy lottery tickets. Well after each drawing the secretary in charge was supposed to check the about 50 or so tickets to see if we had won. It would take her days and everyone was getting tired of the delay.

A guy I worked with went out the day after the drawing (which we lost) and bought the winning numbers for the drawing but in reality it was for the next lottery. He slipped that phony "winning" ticket in her ticket envelope. Well low and behold about two days later we here her screaming about how "we won"! She never looked at the date of ticket. The place was roaring with laughter. Needless to say she never delayed looking at the tickets again.

...when I was around 13 I got hold of a long bamboo stick, wrapped a bunch of rags around the tip, attached a Halloween mask to it. I could barely hold it up high enough to reach the second story of this house where my friend lived. It was about 9 at night, late October, but warm......their window was open and the screen was still in.
I sort of “bounced” this stick along side of the house till I got just next to the window......little did I know their dog heard this scuffing and was sitting there looking out the window and growling (hearing the noise). I couldn’t tell from my angle, if anyone else was also looking out the window...so I maneuvered this long stick out, over and then in against the screen....well, all hell broke loose...the dog let out a horrible yelping like it got whipped and left a pee trail through their house, my friend was just coming to the window when the dog went nutzo and fell backward over an end table, his mother let out a blood awful scream.....I was looooong gone, pole held like a pole vaulting pole running as fast as I could down the street, I never admitted to nothing...*smiles*...but heard the results the next day.

“Super gluing a quarter to the floor at work! “

Done that one!
Called my band’s just married soundman. Got his answering machine. Started riffing in a high-pitched, sing-song Paki accent;

“Ohhhh! This is Dr. Bogus Pachysandra, from the Cleveland Free Sex Clinic. All your tests have come back positive-negative, negative-positive! Don’t touch that thing! Don’t let anybody touch that thing! I’m a doctor, and I won’t touch that thing!” And then I hung up.

Well,,,, his new bride got the message before he got home! Guess they had quite a conversation before Bob figured out it was me. They called, and were laughin’ their butts off! And that’s where my screen name comes from.

At one comstruction worksite, some construction workers put some broken pieces of glass, on the passenger side of the foreman’s truck. They then rolled down his window and then told the foreman that his window got shattered.

The foreman drove that truck around for about two weeks before he could get a window ‘repaired’ by rolling the window back up.

I and another young gal were the first ‘female’ claims adjusters for a well-respected private insurance company. As ‘women’, we were required to cover the work load for a young, pompous, pampered male who attended college during work hours and drew a higher salary.

We insured municipalities and their fire & police departments.

Fed up with having to do the jerk’s work - we prepared a claim on Lt. Isaiah Kanyne who was injured while chasing a suspect. His physician (DVM) treated him for a sprained leg and lacerations. We placed the claim with other paperwork on the ‘freeloader’s’ desk and watched.

We had included plenty of clues and after a few minutes Mr. Special ran screaming into the manager’s office; “Those city personnel are filing a claim for a dog”. The manager came out of his office, looked over at the two of us with a great big silly grin on his face.

We never stopped laughing - still giggling as I type.

Took my girlfriend to a scary movie. After we got seated I went to get popcorn and drinks. I got the largest popcorn they had and cut a X in the side of the tub and stuck my hand in. We shared the popcorn and I could hardly keep from laughing as I felt her getting closer and closer to my hand. At just the right time as she reached in to get more popcorn I grabbed her hand through the box, needless to say everyone in the movie knew when I did this, almost had to leave because I couldn’t look at her without laughing.

I really, hate those speed cameras where I live, and so do some teachers.

It seems the kids at a nearby high school have been taking photos of teachers license plates, printing them out life size on a copy machine, then taping them to their cars.

Then the kids race thru the speed cameras and the teachers get the tickets.

Its terrible, rebellious, and awful funny ...

At work a long time ago, a guy put a chainsaw together without the chain. He started it, and with it running at full throttle, swung it into another guys’s chest. That was pretty crazy.. Not something I’d advocate. But I did see it happen.

When I was changing jobs, the coworkers my my old company pulled a masterful joke on me.

They had hinted that they wanted to get a stripper for me, and I told them that I wouldn't stick around if they did so.

So, they went to a female coworker and had her call me, claiming to be the receptionist. She said that she was trying to reach my coworker (the one who had hinted that he wanted to get me a stripper), but couldn't reach him. She then said that someone had to come to the reception area and do something about the inappropriately-dressed woman standing there.

Well, I hit the roof! I grabbed my stuff and started walking out. My coworkers, laughing wildly, ran after me and stopped me, and admitted that the call was just a prank.

The best part of the story, which I learned later, was when they went to the female coworker and started the conversation with: "We have a favor to ask. We told John that we were going to get stripper-". That's as far as they got. She jumped up and yelled, "I WILL NOT!". Then they had to calm her down before they could explain that they only wanted her to impersonate the receptionist on the phone. THAT she was happy to do.

Late one night in college I arranged the folding chairs in the choir room so their back legs would drop down into the gap in the risers at the slightest touch. Had humanities class in the room the next morning - first class of the day - so got there early to watch the humanity.

Too bad that girl sat down with a warm beverage in one hand. The basketball player didn’t look too graceful, either. I just kept my eyes on the text book as if nothing was happening.


Then there was the year I decided to jump out of the bushes and scare kids one Halloween. That lasted until some kid with a cudgel indulged the natural response of self defense. I didn’t know what hit me.

Convinced a co-worker that he someone else had been assigned to co-habitate his office. We moved another desk and chairs in there (very small office - very crowded). We would periodically leave a note - something along the lines of “am on business travel - please water my plant”, and would make comments like “I just met your new office-mate. Oh, you haven’t met him yet? You just missed him!” We kept this going for several weeks before someone spilled the beans.

1. Back in the days of the rotary phone, I told a co-worker (lovable but dense) that the phone company had called about an issue with the lines. The lines had dust and they had to blow them out. The phone company had instructed us to put the receivers in a paper bag, tape the bag to the receiver, and leave it on until they called back with the all-clear. After about 10 minutes, I told her they had called back and said it was safe to take the bag off. When she took it off, she looked in it to see if there was any dust.

2. In the days before cell phones, I had a manager who was a micro-manager. If she was out of the office she would call her employees constantly checking on things. She had a pager, so they could always get ahold of her.

One week she was working a charity golf tournament. About mid-week while her employees were at lunch, I paged her and put the number of the local Hooters restaurant. About 10 minutes later, I heard the phone of guy #1 ring. Then guy #2. Then guy #3. Then my phone rang; I answered. ‘Where are they?!?!?!’ ‘At lunch.’ (of course) ‘Tell them to call me the minute they get in!!!’ ‘No problem.’

She had called the Hooters and had them paged. To this day she believes one of them did it, even though I told her otherwise (several months later).

Now THAT is funny. I didn’t do this prank myself, but I know some guys that took a screen shot of the person’s Windows desktop. Then they made that the background image and deleted all the desktop icons.

The guy came in, and of course, double-clicking on any of the desktop icons wouldn’t work (because they weren’t icons - just part of his new desktop wallpaper).

Another one...

I was taking the "System Analysis" class at college, and we were working on our final projects, and everyone was on pins and needles. The final project was putting together a technical project proposal, and then presenting it to the rest of the class. It was a team project with groups of three, but there were 16 of us in the class, and I volunteered to do the project as a team of 1 (I preferred to work on my own anyway).

The first presentation was about to start, and that team passed out copies of their proposal to the class. I started looking through mine, and on the first page was a dirty cartoon out of Playboy. For whatever reason, I thought they had accidentally included the cartoon in everyone's copy, and that made me completely lose my composure. I had to step out of the classroom for about 5 minutes before I could get my laughing under control.

Afterwards, I found out that they had only added the cartoon to my copy, so no one else had a clue why I completely lost it.

My dad was a part-time coin dealer. One friday night, when I was about 16 years old, we had all of his coin inventory packed in cases on the living room floor ready to go to a coin show the next morning. It was Halloween.

There was a knock at the front door, and someone was calling my dad’s name in a disguised voice. We were terrified. We didn’t have a peep hole back then, so we looked out the bedroom window, but we couldnt see who it was. It was two adults in costumes and masks. The man was wearing an 1890’s suit and a straw hat. From the window, the cane he was carrying looked like a gun. My brother was trying to draw a bead with his BB gun, but he couldn’t, so we called the police.

When the police arrived, we opened the door, and the man announced who he was - a local coin dealer and his wife. This dealer was a friend of ours, and was friends with most city cops, and knew the one who responded. He was also known for his practical jokes. My mom invited them all in for coffee.

My dad got him back. At a coin show my dad’s table was right next to this dealer’s. The dealer had a collection of sterling silver teaspoons with the replicas of the heads of all the Presidents on the handles. My dad slipped a regular teaspoon in the pack when the guy wasn’t looking, and, of course, made a very public display of finding that spoon in the pack.

My dad was getting tired of a guy at work bumming cigarettes from him. So, he threaded a hair through a cigarette, and the next time this guy asked for a smoke, my dad gave that one to him. He never bummed a smoke from my dad again.

My college roommate was a mooch. He would eat anything as long as it was free. He was offered a chocolate bar, which he woofed without even looking at it. It was a whole bar of Ex-Lax, nine pieces, more than four times the recommended dose.

My pledge class’s pranks (only 3 of us):

- taking ALL the silverware in mid-morning and putting it in one of those large stew pots filled with water and sticking it in the freezer (commercial size); the Brothers had to wait to thaw it out before dinner could be served

- getting the cook to put some “methyl blue” in the cake dessert; makes anyone who eats it pee a green color for a day or so

- slipping some ex-lax in the chocolate cake batter when the cook wasn’t looking, and then secretly saran-wrapping the tops of all the commode bowls in the house

We had some fun!

Why people fell for this one on April 1, I’ll never know:

Someone taped a sign to one of the copiers in the office of a company where my son works, over the control buttons that stated “Copy machine converted to voice command. State the number of copies you want”. He said people were shouting commands and getting perturbed when they couldn’t get their copies.

Back in the day, before HR moved into the building when we could get away with pulling pranks in our office , we performed many. One of the funniest was pouring all the paper dots from a hole-punch into the victim’s umbrella, choosing a rainy day course. It was a gas watching the person leave and then get showered with paper dots.

Problem with pranks though, you often get a negative return on your investment.

Hmm... I can't imagine someone else's hair would put off someone who smoked cigarettes. However, that reminded me of a cute prank:

Take a piece of wire and insert it into a cigarette or cigar. Then, smoke it in the presence of someone who's anal-retentive. Handle the cigarette carefully, and the wire will keep the ashes from falling off. You can end up with the whole cigarette being one long piece of ash. Some people will kill themselves trying to get you to bump the ashes off the end of the cigarette.

Another one I've heard of but never tried:

Get a bobbin of thread that matches the thread in your shirt or sports coat. Put the bobbin in your pocket and leave about 1/2 inch hangout out of the pocket. Wait for some anal-retentive type to attempt to pull the loose thread off. Sometimes they'll get several feet of thread before they give up.

Then cut off the excess, leaving a half inch, and wait for the next victim.

About thirty-five years ago, we had a minicomputer system that used 8 inch floppy disks for software and data storage. I discovered that you could messages on the software disk, and when the program booted you had to watch all of them scroll up down the screen before you could do anything. One night I put about twenty or thirty error messages on a program disk. The only person who used that program was the junior partner.

The computer room was near my office. I heard him go in one evening when we were all working late. I heard him boot the system. I heard him reboot the system, and reboot it again. Then he came into my office and ask if I had put messages on his boot disk.

You have to delete the messages one at a time.

Uh oh.... you are talking to the master right now.

Here are my greatest hits.

1. In high school throwing a cup full of pennys out the second floor, wait 10 seconds for the freshmen to arrive, then douse them with a trashcan full of water.

2. Call random girls in the dorm, and say that I am calling them because their number was on the wall at a sleazy bar restroom.

3. Call forward a dial prayer call to a co-worker

4. Call a alocholic friend, then identifying myself as a substance abuse counselor, wanting to set them up for an appointment, .... and they showed up.

5. Broke my kid of chewing on pencils several years ago by telling him he could get lead poisoning. Then have him look up the symptoms of lead poisoning , then watch him freak out.

6. Tell telemarketers to hold because someone is at the door. I once had one hold for over an hour.

7. Made calls IDing myself as dorm maintenance doing a survery of dorm conditons. Made them open every drawer, work every device, open every window, etc. etc.

My Dad can tell you stories about the pranks he used to pull that will literally make you laugh so hard you cry. Here’s one: He was raised in far West Texas where ranches are measured by sections, not acres. When he and his brother (later the family black-sheep) were in their early teens,they were assigned the job of taking feed daily to a bull that their dad had penned far away from the house and the other cattle. The Brahman bull was like a huge pet, even rideable, he was so tame. The boys hated the chore so much, and being boys, they goaded and teased the poor animal until you couldn’t get into the pen with him. Months later, their dad went to check on the bull and got into the pen with him, and the rodeo was on. He was shocked that the big pet he last saw was now a raging bull chasing him furiously around the pen. At supper that night, their bruised and sore father announced at the table that he would never pen another Brahman bull in solitary like that again, because he’d found it made them insanely violent. The boys never told him the truth about it.

Pranks are pretty common at he fire station.

Calling someones cell phone during training to see if they remembered to put it on vibrate.

Calling them when they are already talking on it.

Calling them when they are in the middle of telling a real good story or at a sales counter.

One or more rocks the size of baked potatoes in pockets. One of my favorites...

Pulling a large washer tied to a string under the bed sheets when they are almost sleep.

Expired IV bag hooked to needle sticking through ceiling tile right above face in bed. (sometimes the rats get it before it can be used)

Find old box that came UPS and put 4’ rat snake in it with post-it note that it is for them.

Any sort of wild creature let loose in their office or room.

Donut filled with Ass-Blaster Hot Sauce.

Switching out license plate frames on their car with ones from dealer they really hate and see how long until they notice.

I haven’t done this yet but only because I have never gotten the targets together, but the day will come...
Put a dollop of peanut butter on the bottom of a heeled boot and before class starts ask “who stepped in the dog poo,” and while people are looking, wipe some off your boot, lick it and say, “it must be me.”

Not a prank but the best way to deal with phone solicitors.

When they call and ask for me, I say: What is your credit card number? The cost will be $50 to talk to Binger. If they refuse I simply hang up saying sorry, you must pay to play!

One time a dummy actually gave me their CC number. I replied that it wasn’t valid and hung up.
