    It's coming up, so tell me the best ones you know of. They can be tame or mean icon_twisted.gif

    You know the sprayers on top of most people's sinks? Well, tie a rubber band around the nozzle, and the next person who turns on the water is going to get soaked. Pretty harmless and fun! ;-)

    There's always that old standby, saran wrap stretched tightly across the top of the toilet bowl under the seat.

    Fill someone's bottle of hair conditioner (or shampoo) with Nair.

    That seems a little mean. Break somebody's heart and yell April Fools. But hey, whatever. Don't wanna piss the paz man off.

    Rearrange all the keys on their keyboard; install a background of a shattered screen; change all their contact names to something stupid.

    I once sent out this email dated April 1 from my lawyers "Dewey, Cheathem and Howe" (hint#1) advising my friends this:
    "Our client would like to inform you that on this auspicious day(#2) that he has won a record jackpot (#3, jackpot of what?) and would like to share this with his closest friends (#4 the visible e-mail list was over 100 "closest" friend! LOL).
    If you would contact our offices by April 31 (#5) you will be given directions on how to obtain your airline tickets (#6, it didn't say they were paid for!) to Bora Bora, where you will spend an all-expense (# 7 didn't say "paid!") week in luxury, where every desire of your heart will be only limited by your credit line! (#8}"

    30 people contacted me, congratulating me and thanking me for including them in my fortune.
    I said "When Rob plays, everybody plays and when Rob pays, everybody pays!!"

    This isn't necessarily the best April Fool's joke but it's pretty harmless. 4-5 years ago I posted on Facebook that I bought a new Toyota 4Runner. People didn't believe me at first and saw through my April Fool's statement, so I had to up the ante... I met a friend for lunch who just happened to have bought a new 4Runner. I took a picture of his 4Runner in my driveway and posted to Facebook. Since it was in my driveway everyone believed me that I actually got one. I even fooled my parents! Later that day I revealed that it was an April Fool's joke.

    4-5 years later I STILL have people asking about my 4Runner and if I still like it.

    Years ago I was the assistant to the V.P. of a company called LORIMAR who produced the show "DALLAS". I got a copy of LORIMAR stationary and typed off a letter from the head of casting to my friend Michelle (who always dreamed of being "discovered") informing her that Victoria Principal was leaving "DALLAS" and that Michelle was being considered to replace her in the role of "Pamela Ewing". I concocted this whole story of how one of the LORIMAR talent scouts had seen Michelle in the Scottsdale hair salon she worked at. We got a great laugh about that one....after she nearly KILLED me for the prank.

    The prank had legs because Michelle went on to marry one of the heirs to the IBM fortune, and for her 40th Birthday her husband threw this huge birthday bash for her here in Scottsdale at The Phoenician resort, and one of the gag gifts at the party were dummy copies of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER and DAILY VARIETY with the headline on each that read "MICHELLE TO STAR IN DALLAS".

    A few years ago someone by text convinced me a dirty bomb had gone off in NYC. I was going from work to home, and started googling how to protect myself (turn off the vents, duct tape cracks, decontamination showers, bagged clothes, etc) when I realized how gullible I'd been, how not panicked everyone else was, and how I'd just been had. I think that's a bit mean, but the whole TERRORIST thing never gets old if you want to be mean. icon_twisted.gif

    Nice? Tell someone you won the lottery, and because they're such a great friend you want to give them 10% of the jackpot upfront. icon_cool.gif
