People Shared The Best Pranks They Got Away With, And TBH They're Pretty Diabolical
"I let him believe he was going to magic school for two whole weeks before I crushed him."
1. This Jim Halpert admirer:
2. This fed up student:
"People in school used to always take my Gatorade, so I took an empty bottle, filled it with dyed salt water, and let them take my drink. Not gonna lie, it was hilarious watching one person spit salt water in the middle of class only for their disbelieving friend to do the same."
3. This cereal killer:
"I picked out every last marshmallow from my sister's box of Lucky Charms. Then I took a photo of myself eating a bowl of just charms, printed it, and put in the bottom of the bag. I then resealed the bag, hot-glued the box, and put it back in the pantry."
4. This simple deception:
5. This crafty crew member:
"I used to work for a cruise line. A passenger once asked if the crew lives on the ship full-time and I said that the crew leaves every night to fly back to Miami and then returns each morning. She walked away satisfied. After that cruise was over, our manager was sharing the passenger evaluations with us and was confused about one in particular. It was a woman who had stayed on deck 14 and had complained that she couldn’t sleep at night because of the noise of the crew helicopter."
6. This clever camper:
"I was at summer camp when my cabin's leaders found a little snake that wasn't doing so well, so they decided to put it in an old terrarium in our cabin. A few of the guys were nervous about it. The next day when the leaders decided the snake was well enough to release, I asked that they keep quiet about releasing it, and when the other guys got back to the cabin and found no snake in the terrarium...chaos ensued."
7. This dedicated deception:
"My mum's laptop wallpaper was a picture of her granddaughter. I copied the picture 100 times and made her wallpaper a slide show of the same picture over and over again, so the file would technically change but nothing would visibly change on the monitor. The pictures would change every 10 seconds. On one of the images I painted a tiny little curly mustache on her. So randomly for 10 seconds my niece would have a mustache. My mum thought she was either losing her mind or had a computer virus, and every time the mustache popped up, it was gone by the time she tried to show anyone."
8. This coffee crime:
9. This rebellious registrar:
"One summer in college, I worked in the registrar's office, registering all the incoming freshman. A professor who was a mentor of mine was teaching a freshman seminar and asked me to hand-pick a class for her. She asked for straight-A students, high SATs, whatever. So I picked a class for her. 15 students, all named Sarah."
10. This loud introduction:
11. This tattletale:
"When I was 13 I was at my friend's house and he thought it'd be funny to pee off the deck onto the feral cats in the yard below. I told him I was going to tell his mom, then went inside and told her, 'When Trevor walks in just act disgusted.' He walked in and she told him how disappointed she was in him (having no idea what he did), to which he replied, 'I swear to God, Mom, he's lying; I didn't piss on those cats.' Watching his face as he realized he had just told on himself was one of the highlights of my youth."
12. This vengeful diner:
13. This frightful farter:
"I farted under the covers, then pointed at the ceiling above my girlfriend and shouted, 'SPIDER!' so she'd throw the blankets over her head."
14. This marker menace:
15. This sly senior:
"At my high school senior class picnic way back in the late '80s, I spread a rumor that the brownies I brought were pot brownies. Half a dozen kids went to the nurse because they were 'so stoned.'"
16. This burping boyfriend:
"My girlfriend and I went to a candle store. I had eaten three helpings of chili the night before and had bad chili burps. I grabbed one of the candles with a sealable lid, burped into it, and handed it to her to smell, opening the lid right before she leaned in to smell."
