Tired of always being on the ugly end of an office prank? Switch to the offensive team this April Fool’s with these clever and harmless April Fool’s Day gags.
- The Switcheroo
I suggest a backup box of actual donuts as this prank can potentially cause serious unrest and harbored resentment amongst your colleagues.
- The Sensor Block
Variations of this classic prank include taping photos of Nicolas Cage and the Trollface meme to the underside of the mouse.
- The “Hey Girl”
Take advantage of the coworker who forgot to lock his computer at lunch and install a Google Chrome extension that changes all images on any webpage to photos of Ryan Gosling.
- The Googly-Eyed Office Supplies
Googly-eye packs usually come with about 100 pairs of eyes, so get creative! Once you’ve covered a coworkers stapler, mouse, and filing cabinets, head over to the communal refrigerator and get sticking!
- The Escapee
The thought of this actually happening is truly terrifying.
- The “The Office”
The quintessential office prank–desktop item set in Jell-O–made famous in the Pilot episode of The Office. This one takes a minor amount of prep work work, but is 100% worth it for the response.
- The Sticky Situation
If you’re feeling particularly gutsy, try this one out on your office supply manager.
- The Moat
Still a little bitter you’re stuck in the cube farm and not in an office? This prank is a solid way to vent some frustration, but you may want to follow this one up with peace-offering donuts.
- The Christmas Gift
But really, who DOESN’T love unwrapping presents?!
- The Bieber-Fever
Of all of the above, this has to be the most unsettling.
