Best April Fool’s Day Prank – EVER
Here is YOUR chance to tell everyone about your best ever prank! It is usually enough just to see your victim’s reaction – but just as fun to brag about it after!
I will start…
We are not HUGE pranksters at our house. I like to pull some tricks on the kids, but I hadn’t really gotten my husband involved, until a couple years ago. There is an area off the side of the road by my house where everyone parks their car they are trying to sell. I made and printed a couple signs from my computer that said FOR SALE and had all the important information an interested buyer would want to know, most importantly the number to call was my husband’s work number. I thought it would be funny if he received all these calls about his vehicle for sale not knowing anything about it. I hung the signs in our family minivan and had my friend follow me to this “parking lot” where I left the van, giggling to myself thinking how hilarious I was. Then I waited. I was so excited when his work number showed up on the caller ID – I picked up (already laughing to myself) waiting for the – VERY FUNNY Missy. Instead, he told me a cop had called him letting him know our vehicle was going to be towed if not moved immediately. I laughed even harder thinking, YEA he is getting into this whole April Fool’s Day thing – trying to get back at me for my prank. It took him about 5 minutes before he finally convinced me that a cop really did call and it wasn’t a joke. The cop told him if I came to move the vehicle before he was done calling on all the other cars, he wouldn’t have it towed. Still a bit skeptical, I hurried and called my friend and asked her to race me back to the “parking lot” to retrieve my car. Sure enough the cop was there and he didn’t think my little “joke” was very funny.
Hopefully my next prank won’t backfire – but hey, I pranked myself – BEAT THAT!
Shelley is not a huge fan of pranks because she says they always seem too mean. I know there are fun non-mean pranks out there – so if you have some, be sure to comment on them for Shelley’s sake. She has yet to pull off her own prank (she is TERRIBLE at poker faces and keeping secrets – two important prank qualities). She did have a good story about a prank played on her husband. It was an Easter tradition for her husband’s family to host an adult Easter egg hunt where his parents would put a good amount of money in the eggs instead of candy. The adults would RACE around trying to get as many eggs as possible. Are you picturing this? One year, his dad put change in all the eggs and handed big bills to all the sibblings except Shelley’s husband with the instructions to pull out the big bills when the hunt was over and pretend they came from their eggs. So the hunt is over everyone is pulling out these big bills from their eggs and Shelley’s husband just keeps getting eggs with change in them. He just kept saying, “What are the chances?” another change filled egg opened, “No, seriously what are the chances?” They all got a good laugh at his reaction to thinking he was the most unlucky egg finder ever!
Alison is the QUEEN of pranks – and yes, they usually involve vinyl. She has pulled her fair share on me…but I digress – her favorite one (and she has used this more than once) is putting vinyl lettering in the rival sports team that any certain individual hates and plastering it all over their car on game day. This really starts some fires, but it makes for some good laughs as you can imagine.
So what is YOUR all time best prank?
We all want to giggle right along with you – and we need your ideas for today – or maybe for next year!
