From my long-ago childhood:

1) stuff the toes of every pair of shoes in the house with newspaper

2) make pancakes and before you turn them gently coil a length of thread into the 'wet' side.

My son is 9, so hes at peak April Fools excitement. He plans to: get jalape簽o seeds and mix them into his dads rice at supper time. Cut up onions and hide them all over his dads home office. Replace his water with straight lemon juice.
I am hoping all of these pranks on his dad will prevent him from planning pranks on me...

Told a tech who also was a plumber that Australia desperately needed plumbers and was willing to pay up front $50k and a ticket to NSW and an annual salary of $75k incl accommodation. He spent the next week researching Australia, making plans and calling the embassy last before realizing he was pranked.

I saw something recently (not my idea) that I'd like to do. Place bubble wrap under the rugs in the house. I have loads leftover.

I never did this ........ I don't think I did ....... cover toilet bowl with saran wrap.

Actually we were great buds and still is. He always makes me laugh. He's a really funny guy.

I don't dread April Fool's Day but my boys do! This year mom is planning a sweet little text: Can you pick me up at the airport at 4 o'clock?

I'm a fun sponge. Wedon't really do anything for April Fool's day.I alsorefused to make a mess in my own house and blame is on a leprechaun for St Patrick's day. I always told the kids that dogs would eat any leprechaun that came in the house.

Maybe this year I'll try a prank or two. The kids would have no idea what to do.

One I'll never try again is HELP! I'm locked in the bathroom at McDonald's! One of the sonnets said Good one Mom. Can't you just crawl under the door? The other one said Hang on Mom. The police are on the way! A good one time text is Greetings from Barcelona. Wish you were here!

I'll never try HELP!! I'm locked in the bathroom stall at McDonald's again. One sonnet said good one Mom. Can't you just crawl under the door? Another sonnet said Hang on Mom. The police are on the way!

flipped them out. Wait

I'm looking forward to/somewhat dreading April's fools. Because I write so many SBARs at work, it has been suggested to me that for April Fool's Day, I don't write any at all. We'll see how it goes, but it might be funny to see our providers' reactions when they don't receive any SBARs at all from SilverBells...

This was a prank the HR Director at Wrongway played on me last year:

Switch the contents of breakfast cereal boxes

Set alarm clocks to go off at interesting times

Sew pockets shut (use a stitch that can be easily removed)

Unscrew lightbulbs just enough so they won't work

Bring April Fools candy to work. (My Dad used to bring jelly beans . . . all of them were good except the black ones; they were yukky!)

There's a great thread on Twitter about this going on. One of my favorite ideas there: For your kid: Pour his Cheerios into a bowl, float them in water, and put the bowl in the freezer overnight. Top off with a thin film of milk in the morning. Clank.

Another is a video of a high school classroom where the teacher's rule is that any time your cell phone rings, you have to take the call on speakerphone. "Hello, is this Kristianne(or whatever her name is)?"

"Yes"

"This is the Pregnancy Center calling about your test. It's positive, you're going to have a baby! Congratulations!""

"Um, can I call you back?" but voice keeps right on plowing along over her, "We have all the supports you need...(enumerates them)... and we'll see you soon!"

Teacher is aghast, apologizes for letting that call continue, says he's soooo very sorry, that should have been private, etc., etc... . Student says, "It's alright, it's my responsibility."

Teacher apologizes again, he's really, really upset.

"I've decided to keep the baby. Her name will be April."

And then she says, "Her middle name will be Fool."

Class erupts in hilarity, teacher included. It's a classic.

This one used to work best if you handed out chocolate (Exlax) candies.

Oh, and then there was the kid who recorded fart sounds as the ring tone on his dad's phone, and kept calling him all day.

It's almost always boys, isn't it?

Talking about fart sounds, I got one of my cousins with a rectum of the year Pic contest for $5000. I told him that I knew the two judges and he would have to split(got it?) the money with me.

The idiot actually went and had his waxed and had the girl take a Pic and sent it to me. My mom lost it. She was in stitches for weeks and then sent the Pic to her sister in Ireland. Irish people take the piss out of everyone. His sister told everyone. I didn't mention he actually lives there and they still sometimes call him 'bumcrack'
