The OfficeAn office that plays together, stays together.

Or at least that’s what I believe.

So to help inspire a little office mischief and humor, I thought it would be nice to share some simple pranks you can pull this April Fool’s Day.

But try to use your best judgement on who or how you “fool” your fellow office mates.  We don’t want anyone getting fired.

10. Print a Fake Parking Ticket

If you work in a city that’s horrendous for their parking violations this one’s pretty great.  You can download a template and replace your own city and address with whatever is applicable to you.  Plus it comes with its own mail-in envelop.  Download the templates here.

With an air horn and some duct tape, you can get a pretty good result of scaring that guy in the office who always seems to need a little extra help staying awake.

7. Repackage Candy

If you’re a little more subtle in your pranking abilities, this one’s a bit more harmless and rather easy to do.

4. Use Other Door

This is a surprisingly simple and effective office prank you can do.  Just print off one of these signs and put them on every door entering your office space. Most people are pretty gullible when it comes to obeying signs that are used regularly like this.

3. Switch Keys on the Keyboard

If you’re comfortable with removing keys from a keyboard (simply pry them off with a flat surface tool), then this April Fool’s prank can provide for some great results.  I recommend the n and m keys since most people won’t notice those being off until they start to type.

2. Put Clear Tape on Their Mouse

As high tech as our devices have become, sometimes it’s the simple things that can render them useless.  If you put clear tape on the optics of your buddy’s optical mouse, they’ll be puzzled when they can’t seem to figure out why it’s not working.

1. Change Their iPhone Shortcuts

iPhone-prank-413x620

This one is great for any grammar snobs in the office who use an iPhone.

Next time they leave their phone unnattended quickly…

Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> add new shortcut.

Now you can add shortcuts so anytime this person puts in ‘are’ it will say ‘our’.  If you get a pretty good list going like the one above, they’ll look pretty illiterate pretty quickly.

If you’re extra mischievous, change other common words or phrases like lol, haha, home, or work to something else.  So for example you could replace lol, with something like “lol I farted”.

You can see the results of that particular prank here.
