The day of the fools is around the corner, one of the most fun days of the year if you ask us. A day of practical jokes and hoaxes, the victim’s of which are known as April Fools. Over the years, the 1st of April has been widely celebrated, and for people who have been running out of pranks, we thought of helping you out with a series of gags you can easily pull of at home and/or work. Prepare yourselves to have some fun –
1. Just Smirk it Out
Our first prank is especially effective if your colleagues are expecting you to pull some kind of stunt. This April Fools’, just do nothing. Sit and smirk at everything on the morning of the 1st. They will rack their brains desperately trying to work out what you’ve plotted. You can help out their anxiety levels with loaded comments to match your smirk. “Enjoy your coffee.” “Have you used the water cooler yet today?” “Aren’t you going to answer that?”
2. Simple & Effective
Borrow someone’s cell phone and change the language setting to a foreign language.
3. From the Women to the Boss
All the women in office individually speak to the boss, confiding that they’re is pregnant and need to leave. Or similar alternatives where everyone makes a difficult/emotional request on the same day.
4. One for the Stingy!
Super glue a couple coins to the ground outside. Point & Laugh as they try and pick them up!
5. No One Can Eat Just One. Ting, Ting, Tid-ing!
Make Their Oreos Minty Fresh (Though make sure the toothpaste is edible. Lol)
6. What, Are You Guys Deaf?
Find, or make a recording of a repetitive noise (a heartbeat works well for maximum distress) or dig out a portable radio. Set the volume to just audible and hide it in a filing cabinet, cupboard, drawer, etc., near to your mark. Now wait for your colleague to ask if anyone else can hear that heart beat/static/music and prepare to deny all. Several times. A straight face is essential.
7. Lazy? Here are some apps!
Some good news for all you Android users, because Google Play came up with a special collection just for April Fools Day. Click on this to access them. From this collection, we especially recommend – Crack My Screen, Voice Changer & Freak Sounds Effect.
