Funny Pranks......

I thought of this in the "Horn" thread, but what are some funny pranks you have done to friends?
When I lived in an appartment complex, I took a 4x8 sheet of ply wood, painted it black, and screwed it to the out side of a neighbors door.

Another time, in keeping with my "horn" theme, I installed a horn behind my friends driver seat. As this was my first "Horn prank" I needed to find a way to get him to hit his horn. After a few weeks, I got him to follow me, I kept driveing slower, and slower until he hit his horn. It scared him so bad, when he jumped in his seat, he knocked his rear veiw mirror off his windshield.


Lets hear yours!

that year was a fun year...me and a couple buddies were on some advisory board and we found out they would be completely remodeling the dorm before the rest of the students...so one night we got drunk and just spent the evening drawing on everyones doors and knocking holes in the walls...the joke was over when we put someone thru the wall into the ra's room...and he flipped shit...he was unaware that the dorms were gonna be remodeled and the sheetrock was gonna get demoed anyways...

oh that was a fun night!

people were PISSED the next morning when there was graffiti all over their doors

This is a IT/telecom related.

So to mess with one of the guys at work, well. To start off the guy is always calling me about everything and I mean everything related to our telephone system. In our global address book he had my extension listed as his and I was always getting his calls. Now don't do that to the more senior and versed telephone tech in the shop. First off I call forwarded my number to his extension then set it up on our voicemail system to automatically call his work cell phone anytime someone left him a message. Lastly I set his work cell phone as his contact number in the global address book.

Next we are going to take a sensaphone and wire up some switches to it. one for his locker and another for our pbx room since they are about 20 feet apart in our building. Whenever anyone enters the pbx room it's going to call him and replay a message. Also whenever he opens his locker it will call him and tell him to get back into uniform. Seems kinda lame but it's going to take this guy about 3 months to figure out how to turn it all off.

Another thing I would do as a sys admin. I would put a log off batch file in a users start up programs so everytime they logged on it would run the normal logon scripts then once it hit the batch file it would log them off.

A PC prank

Long ago a co-worker and I would prank each other when one of us stepped out. So I decided to step up the pranking. I got on his PC & did a screen print(print screen button, next to scroll lock) of his desktop. I made the print his desktop wallpaper. Then I hid all his desktop icons.

He got back from lunch and couldn't click on his (wallpaper)icons. So he would reboot & reboot. No matter what he did, he couldn't get his apps up.

After this he said I won & he gives up!

Another good one to try on a co-worker. If you use optical pc mouses, put black electrical tape over the light. Your co-worker will move the mouse and nothing will happen.

I once prank called a friend who had recently had her 89 olds stolen. She was devastated even though it was a POS. I'd become very good at these calls... this one turned out to be too good.

I talked her into believing I was a car salesman out of Hawaii from Kawikiki Motors (next to the big kahuna burgers) and heard she was in the market for a new car. "Coincidently", I had the exact make and model of car that was just stolen from her, available for sale. The vehicle was recently in from the midwest and we had taken the time to tint the windows, justifying the 100% price increase over what I knew she paid for it.

All in all, the call sounded so criminal that she immediately assumed I was a crook who knew she needed a car, trying to pull a quick one on her.

Pretty quickly I had Sgt. Smith from the KCPD calling me wondering who I was and what Kawikiki Motors was. It took a little explaining, but all was well, after the Sgt. stopped laughing at my friend.

To this day (5 years later), she remembers that and doesn't hesitate to let me know.

My wife and I went ring shopping together. I let her pick out her exact ring. This process took months and she finds a setting and a diamond that are perfect. I tell her let's hold off for a few weeks to see if her tastes change. I go back to the store the next day and buy the setting and the diamond. 2 weeks go by and we go back to the store and we start talking to our salesman. He was great. He went and looked in the books and said stone was sold last week to a nice young couple and the setting just sold 2 days ago. He goes on to say that they have many other stones and settings to chose from. Then he says that he can order from the factory and he could get something "similar." My wife says "What do you mean similar?" I knew she would get all worked up over the term "similar." I could tell she was about to cry, so I thanked Rick and asked him to call us if they got anything similar in. We get out to the car, and Allyson starts tearing up and saying "I thought we had something with that mother f***er, and then he goes and sells it!" She goes on for a while about this and there are no signs of letting up. I told her that we had reservations at a fancy restaraunt and that we still had to go. She tells that she feels sick and that she isn't going to eat. I say that's fine because I'm hungry. We were driving past a foot bridge in a park and I tell her that I need to go take some measurements for a bridge design class I was taking (all lies.) She says she is going to stay in the car, I tell her I need her to write down the dimensions. She begrudgingly gets out and I'm taking measurements and having her write down all these BS dimensions. I then get her on top of the bridge holding the tape measure and I get on one knee trying to measure the width of the bridge and then I pulled out the ring.

Most people that don't know me or my wife, call me an asshole, but this was the best thing for her. She was able to pick the ring she wanted and also get surprised. She loved the way I did it.

A friends father worked at Delta airlines

He would tell us stories of how the used the liquid nitrogen. They would dip different shit in it and throw it down on the floor to see it break into pieces. All kind of metal parts. Then one day a co-worker brought in a live frog/toad. They dipped it and threw it down. The frog broke into a bunch of pieces. He said as the frog started melting the pieces started twitching. He said the legs were kicking.

This happened in a very small town where everybody knows everything about everybody and gossip rules.

My friend got screwed royally in a real estate deal with one of the residents....revenge was called for!

He went to a news stand and bought a REALLY nasty gay, porno magazine and on his printer made a mailing label with the guy's name and address on it.

He then went to the local "upscale" restaurant in this town...and left the magazine, with the label attached, on the counter in the men's room, on a Saturday night.

Bingo!!!

at my old job i was in a prank war with one of my female co workers. she was very shy and withdrawn so i assumed i was gonna kick her ass. i was wrong, i found myself having to step up my tactics. at one point i used 4 rolls of tape to "earthquake proof" her desk and all her belongings. i bought three huge bags of shipping peanuts and filler her desk with them. i actually stole a prank from "the office" and took some of her office supplies home and put them in jello then put them back on her desk inside a perfectly molded block of jello. this went back and forth for a while. she probably actually won. but i did pull hte last prank. on my last day before i quit/was fired was when i earthquake proofed her desk

When I was in college, a bunch of my frat brothers and I hooked up a car horn to a car battery. We put them in a vented box with a lock on it. We got into the ladies dorm and shoved it in a return vent...all this at around 3am. We tied a string to the switch so we could pull it when we closed the return vent screen up again.

After we pulled the string, we high tailed outta there. The main return vent was in the ladies lounge...it also connected to all 4 dorm wings - about 50 women per wing. It was funny watching them walk out of the dorm like there was some fire alarm or something.

Funny thing is...the battery started to smoke and they actually had to clear out for real.

Never got caught, but we sure bragged about it a lot.

Several years ago I worked with a computer consulting firm and we did harmless computer pranks to each other. We had one that would that would for a split-second change the mouse cursor to a hand shooting the finger.

Another time we connected a wireless mouse to a guy's computer when he wasn't looking. He still used his normal mouse, but occasionally we'd just barely bump that second wireless one. Subtlety was the key there.

I got on another guy's system once and whenever he'd execute a compile of the program we were working on, it would eject his CD drive which bumped into his keyboard. Not a big deal at once, but over time it got very annoying and he never figured out how to disable it. This was a laptop, so eventually he just swapped the CD for a floppy drive. So, then I got back on his system and made it try to access the floppy drive every time he compiled.
