Prankity Prank


Heh. Judging by the number of comments on my facebook page, nobody, except my mother-in-law, particularly liked my April Fool's Joke. One friend called me up to [mock] complain, which turned out to be awesome since a nice chatty conversation was long overdue. It was kind of funny, right? [And thank you to all you SoCal folks that ever so nicely pointed out that it was a balmy 80 degrees down there today. That so doesn't help my rain-induced depression] [And thank you to Mindy who graciously put up with me incorporating her, her apartment, and her lovely dog, into my ruse]

My mom told me about a prank that someone at her work played once: put a packet of undissolved gelatin into the toilet bowl. It will solidify and any unsuspecting coworkers will find that their, um, deposit, has unique, walking/floating-on-water abilities. I'm not quite sure how you get rid of the gelatin. Do you suppose it all flushes down?
-
Then there was the time that we quietly removed the towel and clothes belonging to a fellow dorm mate as she was in the shower. She burst into the common area having wrapped herself in the white [and shockingly transparent] shower curtain. Ginny, we sincerely owe you a heartfelt apology. That was not a nice prank.

For St. Patty's day I always dye my dad's beer green, which results in a nice green mouth/tongue as the bottles are darkly colored and you can't tell that you're imbibing a wickedly green drink until you appear with clover-colored lips. I didn't do that this year... perhaps I should get on that.

And then there was the pile of fake dog poo that I placed under a classmate's desk in 6th grade. Thank you Archie McPhee...

Ok, your turn! What is the best/worst/funniest prank you've either played or had played on you? I'd tell you about the prank that involved a frozen cookie sheet of pee that someone slid under the door of a dorm mate but I can't verify that one as I was not present for the actual event...
