    April Fools Suggestions

    I need some help w/ April's Fools Ideas -- nothing too mean. Although I'm not too sure what too mean is just yet.

    Last year I wrapped a rubber band around the thumb button lever on the hose/ sprayer on the kitchen sink at work, so that when someone turns on the sink water, they get a blast of cold water. That's usually good for a laugh.

    Suggestions?

    Kind of lame, but it did get a chuckle:

    A few years ago, a bunch of us from work called a co-worker named Joe. 3 different people called Joe's number and asked is they could speak to "Cindy". Each time Joe said, "Sorry, wrong number." After the third "wrong number", a female coworker called up Joe and said, "Hi, this is Cindy. Do I have any messages?"

    I set all the HP printers in the department to have "INSERT COIN" on the status display, and and a cron job on a Mac to yank the message come 2-3pm tomorrow, so nobody will be the wiser.

    Take a few cans of shaving cream, then freeze em. After they are frozen take a hacksaw and cut of the bottoms. Lastly put them in someones locker or in their gym bag or something. When the substance thaws, it expands. 2,000 cans or so should fill a car

    Sneak up behind someone as they are about to walk down a flight of stairs and push them.

    Sometimes they even get some well needed time off work.

    Oh the jolly japery!!

    I have been contemplating the following:

    We have one of those vending machines where you must slide a small door open to retrieve your item.

    Much like this:



    I would to vend some product and while the door is open, put peoples lunches (from the work refrigerator) in it's place.

    Get a small plastic film canister and fill it with ammonia, then put a small hole in it so that the ammonia drains out slowly. Place the canister close to your choice of victom/s so they smell it all day. Makes it smell like a bathroom.

    Make sure you hide it.

    Go to the local jail. Use the pay phone in teh lobby and call your wife, girlfriend, BFF and tell them you have been arrested for an unpaid traffic ticket. Tell them you need $100 cash to pay the ticket and that your cell mate has been making eyes at you.

    I did this a few years back. The guy that came and got me thougth it was so funny he did it to his girlfriend, then she had to pull it on someone else. By the time it was over there were likes 8 of us standing the the parking lot of the police station laughing at each other.

    A few years ago I heard one about a guy that was growing pot in this house. His friends called him pretending to be the local police. They said we know about your weed and if you bring the plants in to our office to be destroyed we will let you go with a warning. To his friends surprise he turned himself in, and to his surprise he got arrested.

    Clear tape under their mouse.

    Dad made pancakes with a disc of cloth inside for us one April first. We struggled to cut them while he laughed.

    Not all companies tolerate pranks. Remember harassment in in the eyes of the victim. Does no good to complain that someone has no sense of humor when you are out of a job and black-listed.
