Share-worthy April Fool’s Pranks
The only prank I ever fell for was a stupid ESPN prank where Dan Patrick was reporting Pete Rose had been pardoned and was eligible for the Hall of Fame.
The only April Fool’s prank I ever succeeded in pulling off was switching out my parent’s sugar bowl contents with salt. The coffee was extra bad that morning at the Wilde home some 12 years ago.
One year I did try the cellophane over the toilet seat … didn’t work … thankfully.
About two weeks ago, my good buddy told me about some non-April fool’s pranks that were pulled off by a guy at his college who had a prank IQ that was off the charts. If there was Mensa for pranksters, he’d be El Presidente.
One prank took weeks to plan, involved the secretive recruitment of a small platoon of grunts and involved the genius of the mad scientist of pranksters. Seriously, this prank genius better be working for some Black Ops government program, cause if he’s pushing paper in some corporate building he’s wasting his God given gifts.
On an early Saturday morning – around 2 AM — this platoon went through the parking lots of a fairly large Campus that shall remain nameless and opened all the unlocked car doors. They then propped a stick between the front seat and the horn of the car (BEEEEEEEEPPPP), and then proceeded to lock the doors and shut them. They did this to about 100 cars.
Being the weekend at a college campus, some of the car’s owners were still in residence, while others had bolted for the weekend, leaving their cars unlocked in the safe hands of campus security. Those trusting, absentee car owners came back to a dead battery, as well as tired and angry dorm brothers and sisters on Sunday evening.
Below is a classic prank by the guys from www.collegehumor.com. It’s rather long, but you can skip around to get the gist of it. Pretty well organized … pretty well executed.
So, where’s your prank IQ at?
Ever pulled off a stunt that you would happily claim as your brainchild?
Or, ever pulled off a minor April Fool’s joke like the one I mastered?
Share. Please. Boast if you will.
Even if you have a low prankster IQ such as myself … please, let the group learn your lesson of failure vicariously.
