10 Completely Amazing April Fool’s Day Pranks To Pull On Your Coworkers
Sure, some people might think that playing April Fool’s Day pranks at work is “immature” and “grounds for termination,” or whatever. Who cares about those people?
The fact is, the only thing better than a prank is multiple pranks, executed with precision and aplomb, that totally disrupt everyone’s workflow and make you look like a jerk. It’s Just Science. Pranks can happen any time, but on this most hallowed of days, we’ve got some ideas for those of you who neglected to plan ahead. Happy pranking!
1.1. Replace everyone's regular paper clips with cRaZy paper clips.
Picture this — your team has a big client meeting today and needs to print a contract for review. Everyone looks around for something to hold the pages together, only to find that there's nothing to use except
Angry Birds clips! Hoo, boy. You nailed it.
2.2. Eat other people's lunches out of the office fridge (even if they're labeled. ESPECIALLY if they're labeled).
Leave a note made from magazine clippings: "U JUST GOT PRANKED!" #Anarchy #PRANKED
You are the office's Ashton Kutcher.
3.3. Switch everyone's family photos, but keep the frames the same.
"Hey Bill — check out your desk! Why do you have a photo of Alice's kids? LOL. #PRANKED."
4.4. Make prank phone calls (from across the room) (complete with disguises).
*Puts on Groucho glasses and dials* "Heyyyyyyyyyy. Is your refrigerator running?"
5.5. Pretend to fall asleep in that big meeting with corporate. Or actually fall asleep.
Don't worry about it; you won't get in trouble. Just send your boss an email afterward explaining that it was a pRaNk. Make sure to include the creative capitalization, though.
6.6. Give your boss a pie chart when he asked for a line chart.
7.7. Insert a picture of Grumpy Cat in your coworker's PowerPoint presentation.
If you really want to go for broke, make sure you also insert all kinds of wipes and sound fx. Word Art. Checkerboard slide transitions.
8.8. Mess up the office's bagel order....ON PURPOSE.
Everyone gets an onion bagel with strawberry cream cheese. This won't have lasting ramifications...everyone's memories get magically wiped at 12:01AM on April 2nd, donchaknow?
9.9. Change your coworker's email signature to something dumb.
Today is the day that all of your arch-nemesis's emails are signed "Associate Director of BEING LAME."
10.10. Funny photocopies
It's a classic. Why mess with perfection?
11.You did it!
Congrats on crushing April Fool's Day — AS USUAL. And enjoy funemployment!
