  2. I would prank my parents by taking them to a nice seafood restaurant the next time we get together for dinner, they both HATE seafood more than anything. Once there, I’d take them in the bar so they can have a glass of wine and laugh it off, then I’d take them to their favorite Mexican place.

  9. Well you can’t really see a whole lot of outside through my brother’s window. I would prank him by spraying some of that fake snow window spray and yell out that it’s snowing! Of course he would have to see for himself and may or may not fall for it.

  11. I do mostly grown up pranks. Like I told my Dad and sister that my brother is the one who planted all of our flowers in front of our house this year, and they believed it. They called up my brother and said thank you, and my brother said I do not know what you are talking about! Or the time I made a chicken dish and told my family while they were eating it that I tried the new squirrel meat at the store and they believed me and would not eat their food! I am always pranking my family!

  14. A prank that we actually did. We have a bridge in our town that is suppose to be haunted. People supposedly hear noises, see things, and a lot of other strange activity goes on there. We decided to have a little fun, and set it up to scare my friend Sarah. Sarah’s boyfriend had already drove down to the bridge ahead of time, and hid his truck. Then hid near the bridge in the woods. It’s a very secluded area so that’s creepy itself. My boyfriend and I were parked right by the bridge, and we told my friend Sarah to meet us there we were going to hang out. Her boyfriend was suppose to meet us a little later. She pulled up and we were already walking on the bridge. She joined our walk on the bridge, and we started talking about how the bridge was haunted. About a minute went by, and she was like, “Did you guys hear that?” We were like, “No, what did you hear?” She said it sounded like a thumping sound. We played dumb haha! Her boyfriend was in the woods throwing huge rocks (behind us) where no one could see them being thrown. Then it happened again, and she was like, “Did you guys hear it that time?” Then we were like, “Yeah, oh my gosh wth was that?” She’s starting to freak out at this point, because we are acting scared with her. Then all of sudden, her boyfriend jumps out on the bridge from I don’t know where. He yells as loud as he could making this awful sound. LOL She started running as fast as I’ve *EVER* seen anyone run, and we couldn’t even catch up with her. By this time my boyfriend, her boyfriend, and I are laughing as hard as we could while chasing her down. She ran to her car jumped in as fast as she could, rolled the windows up in a split second, and locked her doors. Then starting her car up with this awful petrified look, while her face was white as a sheet of paper. Doing all this in like 30 seconds lol so, so, funny! The funniest thing of all, was that we were all outside her window knocking on it, laughing so hard, and telling her it was a joke, but she still didn’t realize that. She was in complete shock!!! Finally, after a little less than a minute had gone by. She got out, and hit her boyfriend in the arm laughing, saying we were so mean, but telling us that we got her good! I guess you just had to be there to actually experience one of the best pranks of my life! It was my idea by the way haha! I really wish we had something to record it on that day, but YouTube didn’t exist then, so I just have to remember it like this. It still makes me laugh so hard every time I think about it. I was laughing out loud writing this.

  20. I had a job as a dispatcher/call coordinator one time. There was a really ditzy blonde there that our boss hired merely because he liked the way she looked (and her brother owned the liquor store that he frequented). A co-worker of mine and myself used to push the button for her extension and let it ring. She would pick up the phone and say, “Hello? Hello?” and never figured out that it was us. Hell, half the time she didn’t even realize that it was her own phone that was ringing.

  21. My fave prank…. I had the access to log other computers in the company off from my desk. One day, out of boredom, I logged a co- worker out of the system every 10 minutes for about an hour. Thoroughly confused her πŸ˜‰

  22. I would prank my husband with putting salt (or something) in his coffee or in his dinner. He never complaints about what I cook or the coffee I make so I’d be curious to see if a nasty taste would make him speak up.

  23. I would prank my brother by putting his alarm clock on the other side of his room while he’s sleeping so he has to get out of his bed to turn it off in the morning.

  25. This is something that’s actually happened at work. One of our coworkers had a new infant daughter at home and clearly wasn’t getting enough sleep. He actually fell asleep at his desk one afternoon. Someone picked up his cell phone and changed the ringtone to a clip from a very annoying-sounding hip hop song where the rapper was yelling “Wake up! Wake up!”. Then put the volume on maximum, and placed the phone on his desk right by where he was laying his head, and then went to the clear opposite end of the office and gave him a call. He woke up so fast and almost fell backwards out of his chair! (I felt bad for him because he had said days before his daughter was very colicky. But this is what guys do to each other!)

  29. When I was in highschool, we went to camp for a week and the girls and boys spent the week pranking each other.

  53. I bought a realistic looking rat, sat it on my husbands chest and then jumped up on the computer desk screaming that there was a rat. I never seen him get out of bed so fast. I have also wanted to dress up as a creepy clown and crawl under my teen sons bed and reach up and grab his arm or leg but I think it would be to mean.

  54. A really funny prank is to get people while they are sleeping. It’s the best because they are so unaware. ha ha. I have yet to get my boss. Maybe I could bake him a laxative cake and then put out of order signs on the bathrooms πŸ˜› Some friends and I pranked a room mate and it was hilarious. And of course things are always better with an air horn. πŸ˜‰

  57. A radio station used to do this in Florida. A funny one was when a boyfriend called up to have his girlfriend pranked. They had been shopping and she had been changing stickers on merchandise. The dj called her in the morning pretending to be a detective who was sending the police to arrest her. You should have heard her begging.

  61. I think it’d be funny to have my husband “arrested” for some strange thing he does, like his weird obsession with bacon. I don’t know, like he’s bought more than the allowable amount for the year. (* of course, this comes the day after we had a loud knock on our door yesterday and two men from the police dept with large guns showed up and told us to get out of our house as someone was being arrested and they thought they were armed next door. Hubby was so scared . heh *)
