Happy April Fools Day, Everyone!

(Above: From the new Charles Addams exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York. I'm DYING to see it!)

Any good pranks to share?

I went through the whole day with the only prank (which I saw repeated at least ten times) was: "Your shoelace is undone." I inhabit such a boring place >.<

Actually I have 3. Don't worry they're all short.

1. One time in a Girl Scout Campout in our backyard, (more fun then you think) our tent (which contained 3 people), played a prank on the other tent, (6 people). First my one friend snuck out, and went to the moms, about a strange noise. Second, me and my OTHER friend went to the restroom. After we finished, we grabbed a tennis ball and threw it at the tent. Nothing happened. Then I threw a SOCCER ball at the tent, then we ran. We still haven't been caught yet.

2. In Religion class, when the teacher was out of the room, chaos was erupting. When we heard it her footsteps, we ran to our seats and pretended to be in deep prayer. We got caught.

3. When our Latin nun, told us to go upstairs, and only three people followed. We just stood there on the staircase for like five minutes doing NOTHING. Eventually we went back, a few people at a time. Our teacher was STAEMING mad.

I believe I actually read this in Kiki Strike and the Empress's Tomb, but I pulled off a full scale poltergeist haunting with my very superstitious little sister about a week before April Fool's Day. Chapstick on the mirror, rubbed out family portrait, rattling and moaning in the vents, the whole nine yards. She's trying to convince Mom and Dad to move. xD I'm going to do the grand finale tonight, and then tell her it was all a joke. She'll probably never speak to me again.

My mother taped a fake cocaroach to the toilet seat... I dye the milk every year... Double stick tape on the bathroom tissue... chewing mints, then hitting a wall and spitting the mints out. It looks like broken teeth!

Kitty- The deviantart thing is SO annoying! I have a Lady Gaga one (Thank God, someone @ DA headquarters would have died if I got a Twilight *GAG!!!!!* icon) but my cousin got a Team Seeker one... She is so confused!

My friend on facebook told everyone she was pregnant at 12:30 AM... It only worried everyone except me since I was conscious of the day...

And an app on facebook pulled a prank too...
Thats it so far.

I have a hypothetical question:

Suppose a group planned a prank, which if it went as planned would be amusing for both prankers and prankees--namely, postit notes all over a car. If a few persons in that group added unkind messages to the prank, without the knowledge of the others,

1. are all the people in that group culpable?

2. Once the others learned of the unkindness, how ought they go about apologizing and / or making amends?

Furthermore, suppose the prankee was an authority figure, who does a bit of pranking himself, and is well known to have a sense of humor, AND the instigator and leader of the prankers was also an authority figure.

At an office or home, or anywhere with a lot of computer, switch around the keyboards without unplugging them. And cover the sensors on the mouses with a piece of paper- I did these at school- HILARIOUS RESULTS!!!

This isn't of my own invention, but I think it's hilarious:

Students at a high school managed to procure three piglets. They covered each in grease, and gave each a collar, marked one, two, and four, respectively. During school, they set the pigs loose in the hallways, and the school day was greatly delayed as the authority figures ran around, trying to catch the pigs. Within a reasonably short time, they managed to catch pigs one, two, and four, but spent three hours searching for pig number three. =]

My science teacher told us that after spring break we would have another teacher for the rest of the year because he had to work on this presentation full-time for this science teacher's group. Almost everyone believed him! Oh, and a girl on my friend's swim team said that when this girl left to go to the bathroom the whole class turned out the lights, locked the door, and hid in the corner. Apparently, the class couldn't be seen from the window in the door, so when the girl came back she thought no one was there.She left again, so the class turned on the lights and got back in their seats. Turns out, when the girl came back again she brought the principal, but the whole class had gone back to normal! The principal thought she was crazy!!

put a sticky note on the bottom of the computer mouse. This is killer, especially when people start dismantling the computer to find out what went wrong.
