I’m not a big fan of practical jokes. Mainly because when people say, “practical”, they really mean, “something that makes you look an ass and feel like an awkward teenager.”
So I’m always on the lookout for April Fools Day Jokes that
- Wouldn’t piss me off too much if they were played on me
- Won’t cause me a lot of extra work or cleaning
- Won’t come to the attention of the authorities and
- Won’t get me fired.
This does limit the field, particularly where the kids are concerned.
My new post on Family Circle’s Momster blog discusses some options. I’d love to hear yours.
In doing my “research” for this post, I came across what I think is the best idea ever, but I don’t have an appropriate person to play the prank on: Take a screen shot of the prank recipient’s (I really dislike the term “victim”) computer desktop, hide all their icons, and use that screenshot as the desktop wallpaper.
PS: My icons are already hidden. Don’t even try it.
Do you have any good April Fool’s Day pranks?
