Prank your neighbor

One way to get a neighbor’s attention is to tell them that their car is damaged. RazzaqTube, a young soccer player fakes out his neighbors by pretending he kicked the ball so hard it broke the neighbor’s car window. When they come outside to inspect the damage, he declares, “April’s Fools!” and the responses are so fun to see. Watch this master prankster here and learn how to do it yourself.

You could also customize your neighbor’s ride by completely covering their car with sticky notes like this prankster did.

Prank your coworker

Use good judgment if you dare to pull a prank at work; pranks that work at home or with neighbors might cross a line that gets you in trouble with your boss. A few pranks you might try:

  • Exchange your coworker’s framed family photos with a weird celebrity pictures – just Google “celebrity funny faces” for a treasure trove of images.
  • The hidden penny is a prank for the long haul: every so often place a penny on your coworker’s desk. Under their cup, on top of their monitor, under their mug. They’ll start to question their sanity.
  • Tape over the sensor on the bottom of their mouse. Under the tape, include a tiny note letting them know they’ve been pranked.

Have fun foolin’ around!
