2. Block a mouse sensor with a piece of paper and some tape.

Bonus points for using a piece of paper with Nicolas Cage on it.


4. "Why isn't my body wash coming out?" Plastic wrap, that's why.

6. Hide a toy snake around the house (or the grocery store).

10. A prank for the Arrested Development fan in your life.

11. A prank for the Walking Dead fan in your life.

12. Fill up a pitcher with some "orange juice" (aka the powder from a box of mac and cheese: it's the exact same color!).

This is even more believable if you actually pour your concoction into an orange juice jug or carton.


14. Squirt a few drops of food coloring onto someone's toothpaste to temporarily recolor their pearly whites.

This works best if the food coloring matches the color of their bristles.

15. All you need is one rubber band to give someone an unexpected bath.

Water never hurt anyone.

16. Most people have heard of the mayo doughnut trick by now: Try substituting ketchup for jelly instead.

17. "Sweetie, will you go fix the leak in the sink?"

18. Turn someone's water blue (or red, for a more horrifying effect).

20. Print out a horrifying image and leave it in a co-worker's desk drawer.

24. Tape a small package of pasta beneath a toilet seat: When someone sits down, the crunching sound will make them think they've cracked it.

26. Easter candy is already on the may as well put it to "good" use.

27. Write a co-worker's name on the waistband of a pair of underwear and then leave them in the bathroom at work.

28. Work somewhere with a view of the sidewalk? Glue a quarter, five dollar bill, or credit card to the ground and enjoy the show.

29. Replace someone's deodorant with butter (or cream cheese).

You'll probably want to avoid that person for the rest of the day (they'll be both angry and stinky).
