The 1975’s Matt Healy pranked Harry Styles’ on the radio with a false ransom joke. Now that April Fools’ Day is coming up, it’s your turn to prank your BFF, sibling or classmate with an lil joke of your own.
Check out our list of harmless jokes for every type of person in your life and get your prank on.
Your annoying sibling: Do you have a sister who always takes forever in the shower? Or a brother who uses all of the milk with his cereal and puts the empty carton back in the fridge? It’s time for payback.
The soap doesn’t work!
First make sure that you showered first or the night before, before you implement this joke. Early in the morning, paint a bar of soap completely with clear nail polish so it won’t suds up. Your sibling will be so confused, she won’t know what hit her.
Picture perfect cereal
Set the table for your sibling with a bowl of frozen cereal that you chilled the night before. Watch him dig their spoon in and get nowhere. Insert laughter.
Your gullible BFF: You love her dearly, but what’s a friendship without a few harmless jokes?
This joke is a classic but it never gets old. Super glue a coin to the floor (make it worth their time; a quarter, loonie or toonie) and watch them break their nails trying to pick it up. Just make sure that it’s not glued in the middle of the road or near union station because they might get trampled on for a few cents.
Poppin’ cake and non-liquid drinks
If you’re willing to go all out and host a party at your home for a few pranks, then we have some ideas that will have your friends thirsting for more. Make jello using see-through cups and place a straw in them when you put them in the fridge to mold (I suggest red jello because it looks more real). It’ll look like a delicious drink. Your friends will be sucking on the straw waiting for a drink.
Now for the piece of resistance: cake! First, blow up a large balloon and place it in an open cardboard box that looks like it could be a cake box. Then go crazy and dress it up with icing and sprinkles like it’s a real cake. At your party pick your victim, um…I mean friend…to cut the cake and BOOM! Just make sure you’re in the clear of expensive linens and home décor.
Too serious or not so serious classmate: Everyone knows that person in school who takes themselves way too seriously or, on the opposite end, your classroom’s practical joker. It’s time for a little change.
Hopefully you can get access to your classmate’s computer for a few seconds so that you can hide all of the desktop icons after you take a screenshot of their original desktop. Make the screenshot their new wallpaper. They’ll think their computer is frozen or malfunctioning. But…you should let them in on the joke if they start hyperventilating.
Leave cryptic notes warning someone of an impending prank then do nothing all day—it’s the easiest joke of all times!
