I actually really hate pranks so I avoid everything to do with April Fool's Day!

DebraKay Neiman said...

I didn't do this, but it was done to me. I was charge nurse on the Pediatric Clinic and ALL my nurses called in and left messages they were sick. Then they hid in the procedure room to surprise me. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

I have a friend who really really hate rats/mice, even just a picture of them will freak her out and cry. Today is her birthday (April 1 is her birthday), it is already a tradition in my clique that when someone celebrates her/his birthday, it is either we ignore her for the whole day or surprise her with a thing she hates or afraid the most. I contacted my friends and told them that later tonight, just before this day ends, each one of us will post a picture of a scary rat in her facebook timeline and we will label it "HAPPY BIRTHFOOL'S DAY".

I used to do the "Your shoelace is untied". It works but then I realized soon enough that if you tell someone they dropped something and point to the ground, they're bound to look even if it's "You dropped your pocket".

LAWonder said...

It wasn't really a prank or joke but I had a problem with the hoop on my Bride's dress and had to wait while a maid of honor's mother drove home to get another hoop. I was 1/2 hour late to my wedding on April 1st and my husband to be was sweating "bullets"!

Jewel said...

This morning I woke up & told my dad I was pregnant. I thought he was going to have a heart attack until I told him April fools. Lol!

Kayla Arnold said...

When I was little, my brother did a cool prank, and I was jealous, so I stood on the table, got everyone's attention, and then jumped off and lay still on the ground, pretending to have died. No one noticed. :D

Karen H in NC said...

I didn't do this....my older brother and his friends did. They had a rubber hand from Halloween, put some ketchup on it and placed it over the edge of the trunk of his car, closed the trunk and just had the hand hanging out then he and his buddies drove around town. Got lots of honks from other cars and finally they were pulled over by a cop. He made them open the trunk to see if the rest of the 'body' was in there! Hilarious...even the cop laughed but told them to put it away and out of sight.

Megan Blackwell said...

I haven't done anything yet, but I think I'm going to put cling wrap on the toilet seat before my parents get home. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

oriana said...

Gef Fox said...

I don't prank, so here's a joke:

Two cows grazing in a field.
First cow says: "Hey, have you heard about this mad cow disease that's been going around?"
Second cow says: "What do I care? I'm a tractor."

Mystica said...

I am the one who gets caught to all the jokes

Carlos Antunes said...

Having a friend call my mom from my mobile phone telling her I was heading to the hospital after being run over by a car...

And as she was about to run out the door, I appeared in the building stairs and I scare all the colour out of her face!

Bonnie said...

I texted my boyfriend a picture of a dog and told him I just adopted it and was on my way to pick it up.
I have 3 dogs already :0
He didn't fall for it.

fatma shahin said...

Stephanie T. said...

I told my friend that I was lesbian and that I was in love with her. She absolutely freaked out!

lynn croxton said...

I taped a picture on the inside of the toilet lid then closed it so my boyfriend was bound to see it when he lifted it. What it was, I'll never tell!

Chanpreet said...

I pulled my most elaborate prank in high school. I pretended like I had a crush on this guy who was really a frenemy. I put notes and card in his lockers for half a year on holidays always signed as his secret admirer. On April 1st, I called him and he was so surprised, until I asked him what day it was. He told me it was a Thursday and when I asked for the date I told him, "April Fool's!"

It was epic and he took it well so it went well.

Two guys walk into a bar, the third one ducks.


A few years ago I pranked my mom that I won the lotto. I texted her with my ""lotto numbers"" and asked if she'd check for me in the paper to see if I won.

Clarissa (Bookadicea) said...

Yesterday my friends and I pranked our friend and we asked him if he knew someone named Siri (The one on iPhone). He must have forgotten about it and he was really trying to remember the fake former high school classmate of ours and we're just trying to hide our laughs because we can't believe he was actually putting an effort, it was really crazy. haha.

Wen Dee said...

When I was in one of the toilet cubicles in my school, I heard a girl enter the cubicle beside mine. I whispered: "Listen, I don't have much time, I am you from the future, you are going to make a fool of yourself in another 3 hours. So beware!" So yeah, that was my April Fool's.

Maidenveil said...

Mary @SweepingMe said...

It wasn't April Fool's but my hubby was working on something upstairs and I was down stairs with my daughter (a baby at the time) and started yelling FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
Well, you never saw him move as fast as he did. He's lucky he didn't break something. We still laugh about it.

Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Rima said...

I've never seriously pranked anyone coz I know I wouldn't wanna be the target of a prank!

Lynn K. said...

It was deadline day so I forgot it was April Fools. Everyone else was busy too so there wasn't time for pranks.

Michelle Willms said...

Sadly, I was ill that day and totally forgot it was April Fool's Day. My children were home for Spring Break, too, so I could have had some great fun. Of course, they are young and would have retaliated fiercely.

Mona said...

One year I switched everything from my boss' desk to mine(including her chair) and vice versa.

Thanks :)

Isa said...

April 1st was so stressful for me, I kinda felt like life was pulling a prank on me. Also, my friend and I promised not to trick each other as things have a way of escalating in trying to outdo each other. :P Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day! :)

Jacklin updegraft said...
