I used to have fun tying those - not sure what you call them now, pulling fireworks?- on anything moveable. Basically a small firecracker with string on each end that goes off when the string is pulled. Used to tie them to chairs, doors, inside drawers
Unfortunately, people lost all sense of humor about them after 9-11.

Short Sheet

This is a one of the oldest April Fool's Day pranks in the world! Take the top sheet off the victim's bed, and tuck the bottom end under the top end of the mattress. Pull it down and then fold it back up so that the top end is where it would be if the bed was made normally. Replace the pillow, blanket, etc., and make up the bed like it was before. When the victim gets into bed, they'll be surprised when they can't slide their feet all the way down to the bottom of the bed!


When I was in the military the short sheet trick is what we used on all the newbies.

His weakness happened to be brownies and I make darn good ones. Chunks of home made fudge, pecans, cream cheese, a hint of cinnamon and topped with a chocolate glaze.

It being April Fools Day I brought in goodies for everybody only his had a little something extra added, Ex-Lax. Just enough to help him be uh, regular.

It must have made an impression, he learned to ask first!
Hi Pam, gurl u wicked OOOO yes that would do alright, but kids would totally fall for that. The only thing is I don't want anyone missing work or school. But maybe just telling them that's what I did will be joke enough. I love ur brownie recipe. I wanted to rep u but I got to spread more first. Here's ur props: GRRRRRRREAT POST!!!!

Get one of those cheap battery powered motion dectector alarms. Tape it to the wall in a restroom stall and set it for alarm. Then leave.

Those things are loud.

I remember back in the 90s when Taco Bell announced that they'd bought the Liberty Bell and had renamed it the Taco Liberty Bell. Boy did that tick off a few feverish patriots! I vaguely recall something about the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial, too.

Oh and, the last time I played an April Fools prank was when I put cheese and rotten eggs in my friend's leaky car radiator. When he needed some heat on a cold morning, he was none too pleased with the results.

One could have all sorts of fun, buying a long, rubbery toy at an adult bookstore.

You hide one in your husband's or wife's lunch bucket, they go to work, go the cafeteria with co-workers, they open the lunch pail. "What did your husband or wife pack into your lunchbox? Is that made of chocolate? Lemme see! Lemme see!"

You have an elderly, prudish neighbor. You wrap it up, put a ribbon on it, along with a card: "Remember that good deed you did for me a couple years ago. I never properly thanked you for that! I hope you enjoy this gift and get many, many years of enjoyment out of it! I've included a sale receipt, just in case you want to return it for a bigger size!"

This is going to my first April Fool's Day I'm not working! What a relief for my co-workers!!!
