Gotcha! - Best April Fools Day Pranks
By Kaya Diebes
April Fools Day is so close! I don’t know about you, but when April first finally comes around, I never have any ideas on how to prank my friends and family. So here are some of the best pranks that you could easily do to make your friend’s day.
Just Keep Filling
Although filling a bunch of cups with water may seem too time-consuming, it’s definitely worth it. Placing a bunch of cups filled with water to cover a room floor or hallway will surely occupy someone’s day who wasn’t expecting it. Working with a group of friends will definitely bring this prank up to its full potential.
Cream Cheese Deodorant
This mostly harmless prank is easy to pull off and definitely worth it. Start by “borrowing” your friend’s deodorant, twist the bottom until there are about two inches of deodorant sticking up, and then take a spoon to scoop it out. Now all you have to do is take the cream cheese and mold it into realistic looking deodorant.
Evilness of Autocorrect
There’s nothing like seeing the frustration of your friend when autocorrect does its job to your advantage. All you have to do is go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut. I highly recommend changing a commonly used word such as ‘no’ to ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’.
Changing the names in a friend’s contacts seems to be one of the top, easy to pull off, pranks for April Fools Day. One idea would be to turn all of the contacts to Harry Potter names. The confused look of a friend when they get a text message from Draco Malfoy would be priceless.
If you’re looking for something on the more disgusting side, it’s time to make some orange juice. Did you know that a packet of cheese from a macaroni & cheese box dumped in water looks the exact same as orange juice? Be the nice, caring friend and offer someone a refreshing glass of orange juice which just happens to be artificial cheese mixed in water.
Post-It Notes Galor!
There’s nothing like covering your friend’s car in a ton of Post-It notes. I’m sure they were looking to get a new paint job anyway, so why not help them out a little? If you’re looking to add the cherry on top, some Saran Wrap, balloons or a nice big bow should do the touch.
