    I think those of us here have shown ourselves to be relatively clever, and I know this board is full of people with a good(or evil) sense of humour.

    I'd like to hear what kind of pranks our ranks have pulled off.

    Simple or elaborate? On family, friends, classmates or coworkers? Was the execution flawless or did it backfire? Have you had any pulled on you?

    Please share.


    My own foray into the arena of pranks has been fairly tame. As a group at work we wrote up a letter on the company's letterhead (ostensibly from the human resourses dept) informing a soon to retire employee that due to new pension laws she would be required to work an additional three years to earn her full benefits.

    Oh, my virgin ears, such language!
    Reading the letter she never noticed us bent double with tears streaming out of our eyes.

    I have others but I'd like to hear from the rest of you first.

    Ok, here's another office prank.

    My old boss had left his favorite coffee cup in the break room and it disappeared. He put a note up in asking if anyone had seen it and that it was very special to him since it had the logo and dates of a project he had worked on and was very proud of his work on that event.

    My friends and I found an old mug and broke off the handle, then using a "ransom" font on our computer (that looked like each letter was cut out of a magazine), we taped the handle to a piece of paper and made a note that said:

    "We have your precious coffee and unless you put $1,000 in the trash can in front of the building, we'll smash the rest of it!"

    He was SO upset and called a big meeting with the entire group and it was then that I had to take credit for fucking with his head and assured him that I knew NOTHING about the mug disappearing and that the handle was from an old mug I had on my desk.

    He never treated me the same after that incident...I wonder why!? :biggrin1:

    Ah, pranks. That which I am known to be the master of...

    My most endearing prank involved my beloved Mother-In-Law. 'Twas the year 1999 and the buzz was all about the "Y2K" bug. She was one of those who feared the world would end at the stroke of midnight on 1/1/2000. I, being the little bastard I can be, decided it would be prime time for a prank of colossal magnitude. My wife and I joined her mother for the New Years Eve festivities at her house, had a righteous good time, etc. When 11:59 came close, I positioned myself near the main breaker box for her house. Then, at the stroke of midnight (thanks to the TV blaring, I was able to calculate my timing precisely), I proceeded to turn off the main breaker to her house, thereby rendering chaos. Oh, what a laugh I had! No one else saw the humor, though..... My dear mother-in-law has suffered numerous pranks from me since, including remote control "demonic posession" of her computer, but we get along great and I wouldn't change a thing....:tongue:

    Another fine "prank" (although I was in "revenge" mode at the time) was a healthy dose of JB Weld to my neighbors driveshaft, flywheel, and lug nuts (along with a flattened tire) when he decided to park his beat-up truck in the parking spot I paid for in front of my apartment. The, I proceeded to have the powers that be tow the piece of junk away. He dared not do that again. :mad:

    I once poured concentrated garlic powder into a roommate's tube of toothpaste.

    A not-very-nice guy I once worked with in a railroad clerks' office kept harrassing a girl on the phone in another building. One of her jobs was to send us train listings via a vacuum tube delivery system between our buldings.

    Once, after a very harrowing shift of this guy's amorous advances, she called me to say that she was sending over a package of homemade chocolate brownies but warned that only Bill should eat them.

    He left for home early with diarrhea. She'd made the brownies with ExLax.

    I'll get back to you in another 22 months, when the statute of limitations has run out.

    When I was sixteen, my basketball team travelled to Boston, MA to compete against our rivals. Because I'm short, the coach (Coach Donald Reese) would always make fun of me.

    So I decided to teach him a lesson. We were in our hotel rooms where we had to stay for the night. I waited until everyone (including the coach) was asleep. I took all of his clothes and threw them in the bottom of the hotel pool. I also snatched the clothes that he fell asleep in off of him.

    The following morning, we all were alarmed at the sound of his frantic screams. He had no clothes and nothing to wear. What did he immediately think?

    A prank from the rival team. Talking about getting away with the perfect crime. But the real treat was mocking him as he had no choice but to walk around the hotel room stark naked looking for his clothes.

    That was really hilarious.

    It was coming up to Christmas and I'd finished Christmas shopping long ago, I was in a pound shop (for those who don't know it's a shop filled with all sorts of crap like dodgy ornaments) and I spotted these absolutely foul gold cherubs, they were ormolu renaissance style, hideous beyond words. I thought I'd get one as a joke gift for my mother in law. Come Christmas day I gave it to her, she opened it, her eyes lit up and she loved it (no accounting for taste) she insisted on displaying it despite my protestations that it was a joke and despite me giving her her real gift. It was a real case of the biter bit because for years after I'd imagine people asking her who'd got her that, her saying I had, and them imagining I had no taste whatsoever.

    Just before our dog died at the age of 16 she'd become prone to accidents, sometimes she couldn't make it through the night without a wee or a poo, I'd come down and find little tiny poos on the tiles. When out one day I bought a box of very expensive hand made chocolate truffles, as I ate one I thought how similar to the dog's little poos they looked. I was waiting for my daughter to come home and I placed one on the kitchen floor, as she came into the room I tutted and said 'oh look, the dog's poo'd again', reached down and popped it into my mouth. The look on her face was priceless :)

    I've never tried it, but one of the best I have heard about was a girl I went to school with loved to take plastic wrap, and put it over the toilet, under the seat, in the ladies' room.
    I know what you did, and I know who you are.

    I once sold a cardboard box on Ebay as a detached house.

    But the buyer couldn't get a mortgage (structural problems after a rain shower) so the err... bottom fell out of the deal.

    I believe it's now safe for you to tell us. :cool:


    I treated a coworker to a subtle, drawn out mind-fuck when I recognized the new coffee mug he'd bought for work and ordered us never to touch. It was one of a set of four that were being sold in a grocery store, each with a sort of gingham patchwork pattern in a different 70s kitchen colour (pea green, puke yellow, dingy faded orange...Oh the glamour of the 70s kitchen...). Each mug also, inexplicably, had a different bug painted on the inside rim about an inch down.

    I promptly went out and bought the other three in the set.

    Each day for a week when he left the mug unattended I poured whatever was in his mug into another from the series. I sincerely don't think he noticed. I then stepped it up to every time he was away from the mug I made a switch and surreptitiously watched as his brow furrowed or head cocked slightly just before taking a sip.

    I'm not sure he ever would have put his finger on it but by the end of the second week other coworkers were in on the joke and he began to notice a small crowd gleefully watching him sip his coffee.

    I had been looking forward to an eventual, "WTF" moment when he finally noticed but instead we were making him paranoid so I told him what we'd been doing.

    I should have kept it to myself and kept it going longer...

    Me & my best friend once switched real cue balls with trick ones, you know the kind with mercury on a table where some stoners were playing, and they were almost freaking out cause the cue ball was acting weird.
