April Fool's Day 2011

arwesarwes Member Posts: 633 ■■■□□□□□□□
Anybody got any pranks lined up for tomorrow? I got an early start today with the Annoy-a-tron from ThinkGeek. A friend of mine here realized it wasn't her computer beeping when it beeped while it was turned off. I'm fully expecting some sort of revenge tomorrow. My boss & HR have approved me changing the desktop wallpaper in group policy to a mirror image. We're curious to see if anyone is even going to notice it!

    This is lame but....

    I was going to make a facebook account of a fake Russian woman. Then change my relationship status to married with "fake Russian woman". I was gonna do this starting last week to figure out who would notice.

    I didn't do this because there's a girl I'm sort of attracted to and we're friends on facebook. I just realized (as I type this) that I could control what she see's but it's to late now, everyone will know it's an attempt at an April fools joke.

    It would have been fun to see the type of messages I would have gotten though.
    Booya!!

    I think I'll be too busy shoveling snow to do any good pranks. However, I am considering popping the deodorant out of my girlfriends deodorant stick and slopping some cream cheese in there. Did it a few time in the Navy and it's awesome.

    Trying to figure something out for work in the morning. Only thing is, my boss doesn't have a since of humor what-so-ever. Any idea?

    If I get the time to do individual pranks I usually take a screenshot of the desktop. I then move all their desktop items into a seperate folder and replace the desktop background with the screenshot.

    Unfortunately my company would never tolerate any worthwhile April Fool's joke. The last time someone pulled one worth retelling they were written up.

    I was sitting down with my fiancée last night, pondering what I could do today. It didn't hit me till this morning, after she had got me and made me late for work, that I was just giving her ammo.

    I woke up this morning to an alarm clock going off in the living room. I open our bedroom door and walked into a wall of saran wrap covered in vaseline and itching powder. I believe I woke up the neighbors...

    I then walked down the hall to the living room to turn off the alarm clock. I flip on the light, and to my surprise she had put toothpaste under every damn light switch in the house.

    I headed to the kitchen sink to rinse off my hand, but upon turning on the water, I get covered in freezing cold water. Yes, that right, she pulled the whole rubber band on the sprayer trick. Jesus...

    I then head to the bathroom to hop in the shower. I hop in the shower and begin my ritual. I grab my shampoo, squirt a liberal amount in my hand and apply to my hair. After a few seconds, I realize that this shampoo isn't sudzy. I hold my hand to my nose and smell, and yet again, to my surprise, I was attempting to wash my hair with mayonnaise. Not only that, but when I grabbed her shampoo to wash the mayo out of mine, she had applied saran wrap between the lid and the bottle.

    I get through in the shower after 45 minutes, which should have took me 20ish. I step out of the shower wrap up in a towel and grab my toothpaste and toothbrush. I begin to brush my teeth, after a minute of brushing, I suddenly can't feel my teeth, gums, tongue...hell I can't feel anything in my mouth. She had added that numbing crap that people use for toothaches, to the top of the tooth paste tube.

    So here I sit at work, face itching, hair greasy and mouth still kind of numb...

    Classic.

    I also spice it up a little by changing their mouse to left hand, dropping the sensitivity to nothing and then leaving their mouse in the upper right corner. Then you get to see them doing their entire arm to get it back. icon_cheers.gif

    OMFG that's great, not for you obviously.

    Some idea's

    if she has any black eye liner, you could melt shoe polish and put it in there

    tie her shoes and put super glue on the knot and all the places the laces intersect

    (if you can) unscrew the shower head and fill it with Koolaid

    saran wrap her car

    make some laxative brownies and leave them out for her (also works best if you coat the toilet seat in mayo)

    I think “very senior” gets stuck in there because the last six yahoos that applied for the position couldn’t tell a packet from a Snickers bar.

    Luck is where opportunity and proper planning meet

    I came in to having a piece of tape under my mouse. I shook it to wake my computer up, nothing happened so I picked it up to check the light and saw the tape. My assailant was quite displeased by my nonchalantness of the situation.

    I told my Wife that Obama got busted for cheating and it was on breaking news right now. It was right around 12am. I told her to stay in the bed and I would send the link. She darted out of bed and I kinda hid to the side so show she could see the "APRIL FOOLS" on my computer screen. I'm sure she got plans for me today.icon_thumright.gif

    I've gotten a few people this morning with the Annoy-a-trons, and I've got one stashed in the elevator now. My boss realized he has an Eviltron at home, and he's going to stash that in a paranoid coworker's office and set it to the faint scratching sound. When he adjusts the blinds in his office, she starts looking around in her office thinking that there's a critter moving around. She's going to go nuts. I almost hate taking off half the day. icon_lol.gif

    WOW, that is just awesome.
    I didn't get to do as much as I had wanted b/c a lot of my coworkers are off on every other Friday. I have managed to get some though. I work in a restricted area and we have to badge in/out so since I am usually one of the first ones in early in the morning, I made signs to cover every other exit with "Please use other exit ->".
    Lame, I know, but it's all I had to work with on short notice. I did change a few keyboard keys on a few people, but they didnt come in today ,so they will get the treatment come Monday.
    I had also planned to sue the "Total Confusion Combo Pack" for Firefox (which is awesome, BTW), but, again, they never came in so I couldn't use it. Just in case you want, it's here:

    Since we are all admins here, I couldnt use the BSOD screensaver either icon_cry.gif
    I may have to save this thread for future use. Thanks for the tips all.

    Well we just got back from lunch. I went to the Krispy Kreme and grabed some filled doughnuts. Purchased a turkey injector from Kroger and injected hot sauce into every doughnut.

    Also added concentrated food coloring to the half pot of coffee sitting in the break room. A little something for those people who like to drink coffee all day long...

    I got one of the old guys. Took a keyboard that is exactly the same as his, re-arranged the keys and swapped them out. Also taped the sensor on his optical mouse and did the classic screenshot of his wallpaper + tiled it. After a minute I heard "Aww you ass!!", then he went looking for me.

    Quick and simple.

    It really depends on her mood...

    That being said, she is a great woman and thinks it is hilarious when she pranks me, but doesn't like to be pranked in return. We visit Nikki and John alot, gives us ideas.

    I created a gpo that changed everyones wallpaper to a picture of me with a caption that read "Always keep your firewall on! XOXO". It was an artistic black and white photo so it looked like a celebrity portrait that was signed. The gpo prevented them from changing it :)
