I don’t do them, but a friend of mine said her Granny was a big fan. But she had a rule of “no lying”. Her favorite prank was the one where she emptied all of the cereal out of the boxes and put the bag back in. 🙂

kmbumbee190618 :    I looked out of the window (as my face gives it away a lot as well) and asked my husband if he had parked his car in the carpark opposite our flat. He was like yeah…. why? I paused and said omg, I think you left the handbrake off! He goes running across the room to see as I go April fools!

I have a few:

2 are my mom – we lived in a split level house and she grabbed ketchup and put on her head and stomped down the stairs but made it sound like she fell. My brother and I come running out of our rooms to find her laying on the ground by the door. We were older, like teens, but totally fell for it. I grabbed the phone about to dial 911 and my dad stopped us.

She used to have horrible and large fibroids on her ovaries. She had an ultrasound done on them and had the doctor give her a copy. Well, I was in my late teens, but didn’t know how to read an ultrasound obviously. She put it on the fridge before I got home from school. I looked at it and was like, OMG are you pregnant!? (she was in her 40’s). She said yes and I proceeded to freak out of how much this is horrible and how could you do this and I don’t want to deal with a baby blah blah blah. She let me go on for about 10 minutes before she told me.

An ex of mine typed up a letter and made a letterhead on it with our landlord company’s logo. It something like “there have been noise complaints of loud sexual noises frequently. If this does not cease we will proceed with terminating your lease and eviction.” He even made up a fake signature on the bottom and put it in our mailbox. I was freaked out and pissed and was ranting until he told me it was fake!

My stepdaughter got us good a couple years ago… she taped the little tabs in on the fridge/freezer so we thought the lights were broken… Darling Husband had already headed into buy new bulbs!

I saw one online today where a fire department took unfilled donuts and filled them with mayo, lol. (and sent them to the local PD)

Our kids liked to play pranks on their dad when they were little for April Fools. They really looked forward to it. Simple things like putting honey on doorknobs/ car door handles or putting green food colouring in his cereal milk or one would distract him while salt was being mixed into the jam on his toast. Taking all his paired socks apart and re balling them with mismatches was one of their all time favourites. My husband would really over react in a dramatic fashion and the kids would laugh their heads off.

They Cheerioed their uncle’s house one year. Poured them into the toilet, covered the top of the blades of the ceiling fan so they went everywhere when he turned fan turned on, in the toes of his shoes. Months later he was still finding them in pockets of jackets, tool kit etc.
