Whether at high school, college, or worplace, everyone has a story of pranks they witnessed. What are the best prank you've done or seen?
the show stopper.
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.
Super gluing a quarter to the floor at work! *snicker*
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.
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.
That is what hammers and chisels are for. :)
Probably for me, filling somebody’s water bottle with tonic water.
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.
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.
“Awful! How did that work out for him?”
All he said was “she was really mad”. I don’t know what he expected..
...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.

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.
Type in Yankees marriage prank on YouTube.
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.
