Who did an April Fool's prank?

Tell us if you know of any April Fool’s prank (from this year, others can be mentioned).

For me:

Me and my friend skipped first two periods of class, and went to the supermarket and bought a can of meat stew, some zip-lock bags, and a bottle of Fanta (we were thirsty :p)

We went back to school at recess, then he told everybody he was feeling ‘sick’. Then, when nobody was looking, he went behind the tree and ‘threw up’ and that’s when everyone looked. He came back with ‘vomit’ (a mix of stew and Fanta) in his hand that he didn’t know was there (he did :p).

Everybody saw it and just backs off, but I went up to him and picked up a chunk of meat and ate it, supposedly thinking it was Subway :slight_smile:

Needless to say, everybody felt sick, and it spread around the school in minutes. We eventually told everybody it was a prank at the next break (lunch), which was a few hours after this happened.

What a great prank :slight_smile:

This is from last year:

I shoot corporate videos and documentaries with my assistant and last year, I made up a fake contract and left it on his desk. When he came to work, I asked him, if he had taken care of today’s filming. He was unaware of the project and I pointed him to the contract and he was shocked. I started telling him about the legal consequences and stuff like that. :cop: He was shocked and not to mention, scard :bigsmile:

Haha good some good ones here :slight_smile:

I guess my boss will be pulling some jokes today (he’s the joking kind of boss), but as I won’t be working I won’t know until tomorrow.

Haven’t done any prank myself yet… although I still have about 8 hours to find a way to play a prank on my gf… :slight_smile:

Last year i convinced the company that Dell doesn’t ship black colored keyboard and mice anymore, only blue ones. They all fell for it.

For this year, i just mailed my prank. If all goes well i will have another victory :slight_smile:

Apple founder Jobs joins IKEA

IKEA’s flatpack days may soon be a distant memory, as Apple and Pixar founder Steve Jobs turns to his latest challenge. Inter IKEA Systems BV will employ Jobs as “acting CEO”, from next month. The technology icon will maintain his twin CEO roles at Apple Computer Inc. and Pixar Inc. but will also take command with a wide-ranging brief at the retail giant. For the technology guru, it’s just another job, but for the Swedish furnishing franchise, it’s a massive gamble. IKEA had a turnover of €13 billion last year, and has over 200 stores worldwide.

My wife hates april fools day! When she was in high school, she came home to find her father trapped between his seat and the garage door. He has a convertible hot rod (T-Bucket). He was working on it and slid over in the passenger seat, when it slipped into gear and busted through the garage door. Only the 2 bottom sections of the garage door broke and his body was trapped between the upper garage door and the seat.

He passed out from the pressure. Luckily she got home very shortly afterwards and rescued him. The Ambulance came and took him to the hospital. She called various relatives (including her mother) but, nobody would believe her. Finally, after a doctor got on the phone her mother reluctantly called the hospital and verified the story. To this day, she will not even go to work on april fools day.

Any other stories?
