April Fools Pranks
I admit, I love April Fools It's always fun to try and outdo yourself from the previous year
In the spirit of April Fools Eve....
What have been some of your best April Fool pranks you've successfully pulled?
What are you planning on doing this year?
The best one I've pulled so far had one of my coworkers as my accomplice and we spent about $30 at the local dollar store to pull it off and the theme was “wedding.” We started with our foreman's office (his name is Pat) – we decorated it like it was setup for a wedding, complete with red aisle, chairs set up in rows, plastic heart confetti and glitter everywhere, ‘formal’ invitations on each seat, a bubble machine, and the kicker was the wedding was setup for two field guys who detested each other. We christened it “St. Patrick’s Wedding Chapel” and even made Pat a formal priest collar to wear, he good naturedly posed for photos in front of his ‘church’
Then we went and took every company vehicle and painted the windows with red paint, hung streamers, filled the truck with balloons, and hung giant ‘just married’ signs on the back.
Final destination was our warehouse manager’s office (who is named Lee); we called it “Chateau Lee’s Tropical Escape.” We took a blow-up pool and filled it with sea shells, took fake tropical flowers and placed them everywhere along with flower petals. Put grass skirts and lei’s all around to finish it off
What am I planning for this year…I’m going small and simple this year. For my boss if he leaves for part of the day as he usually does I’m going to use tape to make a murder victim outline on his chair and another on the floor. For the foreman I’m going to create a life size scarecrow and place it in his chair with the title of “Pat’s replacement.” Nothing fancy, just a bit of fun
Anyone else want to share?
