What's your favorite April Fools joke?

I have two:

The first was last year when the EoFF staff posted as banned members. I thought that was fun. Especially when I gave Sugpo the password to his account so he could really post as himself. Muahaha.

The second was done by my boyfriend several years ago. He's usually a pain to his parents on April Fool's Day, so this year he left his mom alone all day. She thought she was in the clear, but he had set her alarm clock for 11:59pm and really loud. I thought it was amusing.

Hehe, that one was also amusing.

It took me a minute to realize that was an eye with a tear and not a drooling mouth.

For forum ones, I remember when FFWA pretended to be taken over by FFO... XD But... that wasn't so funny.

Hmmm - I've got a few.

My brother and I get my mom every year by Scotch taping the handle down on those hose nossles that are part of kitchen sinks - so when she turns on the tap it sprays her. She always forgets to check. :p

At my college, the bathrooms were co-ed, and set up so that the shower stalls were set behind the toliets - meaning, that if you climbed onto the toliet seat, you could reach your arm over into the shower stall. So one of my good friends and I would wake up early, fill up Britas with really cold water, climb up onto the toilet seats while people where showering, and he and I would dump the pitcherfuls on people. They never missed - it was so awesome. We got our entire floor last year.
Although to be fair, we got each other once, too. I don't think I ever screamed so loud at 7 am before.

My freshman year we conviced my roomate that the girl who lived next door was pregnant, and we were all going to chip in money to buy her an abortion. I still can't believe she believed us. :rolleyes2

A couple years ago, this really pervy kid at my college could never get a date, so he decided to plaster posters of himself around campus with his photo and phone number on it, asking for girls who were interested to call. He also listed his qualities, such as "funny" and "good problem-solver" on the poster. So a bunch of guys on my floor convinced me to call him. We figured everyone would win - we'd get a good laugh, and he'd get to talk to a real live girl. Anyway, we called from one of the guys' room, and I had a list of things to ask. I started with, "where would you take me on a date?" to which he responded, "I'm not really looing for a date, just a girl to hook up with on campus." LOL. So I asked, "If I hooked up with you, would you take me somewhere?" He said he didn't have a car. I said we could take mine, and asked if he liked movies. He said he liked the ones on campus cause they were free. What a charmer. Anyway, we went on and on about eveything from sex to meeting his parents to porn - it was so funny. We recorded the entire convo through the phone to one of the guys' computers, which lasted for over 20 minutes. I don't know how I held it together, but the tape of it has been played to so many people, I've met kids who go - "you're that girl!!!" Haha.

There aren't many foolish practices around these parts.

Though it's a good idea that I will investigate.

I've heard of people exchanging oreo filling with toothpaste.
Or the old salt and sugar exchange.

I always thought the black eye thing is funny in cartoons, but I never knew how to do it. Usually I pretend that something has died around the house.

I came up with one about 5 years ago. My mother absolutely hated and feared my first girlfriend. I was working in a chinese restaurant at the time, and I was going to go up to my mom, acting all troubled and anxious and say that I'd seen the girl lastnight and she had this little kid with her. I'd say that we'd get a paternity test and everything, but I'll be darned if the kid doesn't look just like me. (This was before i met my wife, btw) and I'd say that it'd be the honorable thing to ask her to marry me.

I never pulled it, though. I'm a fairly good actor, and I could have pulled it off with ease. Though that's the reason I never pulled it though. My mother would have keeled over dead on the spot. It would have been extremely funny, but I didn't want to give my mother a heart attack.

You put black shoe polish around the rim of something, like binoculars. Then tell them "Hey, look at this!" and when they put the binoculars up to their face the shoe polish makes the marks.

in elementary school, I liked wearing velcro up shoes, because I couldn't be bothered to tie laces.

People would tell me 'your shoe's untied!'

Then I would tell them that they're a dork.

I'm not much of a prankster, but my seventh and eighth grade english teacher wasX.x;; She and her husband would prank each other back and forth. The one I remember best is when one of them saran-wrapped the toilet.

I think whoever it was forgot about it and tried to use it first, though. That was great.

There hasn't been many good April Fools around my area, or that I've witnessed. We're...not that into it, I guess. :(

Playing repo man was fun.
