I love the idea of April Fools Day. But I am far too forgetful and lazy to carry off any pranks successfully. You mean it requires planning? I have to get things at the store? And spend time doing stuff? Eh. Maybe next year.
But no. Are you just going to let the opportunity to be a jerk pass you buy every single year?
1. Why Not Just Drip Dry?
If there is a male living in your house, you probably have zip ties lying around. Hide the extra toilet paper, then zip, zip, done. If you're feeling really evil, this is also a good addition:
2. Your Mayonnaise is Watching You
I don't know if this even qualifies as a prank, given that anybody who did this to me would succeed only in filling me with delight.
3. Punishment for Trying to Scam Some Free Cash
This costs a dollar, and takes zero time and planning. Perfect lazy April Fools Day prank. Plus, you know, mean. That's a bonus.
4. Wow, Loser, You Can't Even Use a Mouse?
All you need is a post-it note and a mean sense of humor. Check, and check. Watching to see how long it takes them to figure things out is just a bonus for you.
5. What Do You Mean You're Not Excited???
This one requires minimal planning --you've got to buy this thing-- but makes an ultimate impact. Leave it out for an unsuspecting partner to accidentally "find." Wonderfully mean and easy. Aren't you a jerk?
6. Creepy Crawly T.P.
I think the fact that several of my chosen pranks are toilet-related says something not-so-nice about me. Probably need to do some soul searching. (Eh. Maybe later.)
All you need is a sharpie to illicit an April Fools scream. Job done. Over and out.
