Fake dog poop

1) Fake poop

If you really want to gross out office colleagues who walk by your desk, fake poop is a great idea. If you get bored of keeping the fake dog poop or human poop on your desk, you can even play pranks and leave it on the desks of your other colleagues overnight for them to see first thing in the morning. Surely some of your colleagues will find the sight of crap on a Monday morning hard to digest, don't you think?

Pranks you can play with fake poop in the office

  • Leave the fake poop in the office fridge
  • Put crap on your manager's or boss' keyboard
  • Leave the poop in a colleague's laptop bag or handbag
  • Secretly put the poop in your office colleagues' jacket or coat pockets
  • Offer to go across the street to get coffee and donuts – We all know what you are going to put in the bag of donuts, don't we?

Liquid Ass

2) Liquid Ass

The product description of Liquid Ass says "Smells like a**....only worse" One of the customer reviews of this product mentioned "....I sprayed one tiny little "poof" and waited. Within one minute, the kitchen smelled as if an entire college football offensive line had overdone it at the taco stand the previous night...."

If you are going to pull this funny office prank off, be prepared for the grunt and angry vibe of your office colleagues because Liquid Ass is going to stink your office up. The bottle contains a highly concentrated liquid that smells like fart. And not just any fart, this is going to be one deadly monster! The only downside to this extreme office prank is that chances are that you will be in the same room and you will have to inhale this horrendous stench yourself. But the gut crunching laughs will make tolerating the foul smell worthwhile.

Pranks you can play with Liquid Ass in the office

  • Spray the foul smelling liquid during a boring meeting
  • Be the first one in and spray a little bit of it in the office kitchen
  • Secretly spray it while your boss is hurling abuses at you for bad performance – Bet he/she will never call you in their office, ever!
  • Talk a walk around office and spray it in every nook and corner possible leaving no place to hide except for everyone to go out of the office

Shock Pens

3) Shock pen

Shock pens make for a great office prank for one simple reason – they shock people, literally. Can you even imagine the look on your colleague's face when they are jolted with a shock while trying to use a pen? The look on their face will be priceless and you will surely earn the reputation of being the ultimate office prankster if you manage to give you boss a shock with this shock pen.

Pranks you can play with the shock pen in the office

  • Steal all the pens from your boss' desk and leave just the shock pen
  • Give the shock pen to the guy who comes to deliver the courier and act innocent by saying "I'm going to get to the bottom of this and find out who put a shock pen on my desk!"
  • If you think someone's stealing all the pens from your office desk or drawer, teach them a lesson by leaving only the shock pen in sight
  • Use other shock pranks like a shock gum, hand buzzer or other prank devices that deliver a harmless jolt

Do you have people in your office who often engage in nonsensical talks? If you do, that's great because the Bullshit Button will be your savior.

After having a heated argument with the boss, simply go back to your desk. Make sure you huff and puff on your way back to your desk for that extra effect of anger. Grab this trick costume knife from your drawer and hold it in your hand in full view of your colleagues. Enjoy the bewildered look on your boss' face as he/she looks at you angrily stomping towards their office with a knife. Walk up to your boss and stab him/her in the chest with the trick costume knife. While your boss' grimaces in pain and there is commotion among your other colleagues, give out a loud evil laugh and then burst out laughing only to reveal that the knife was only fake.

      "No one will say "Who Shit?" out loud but they're all thinking it" Haha! Hilarious comment!


      Office pranks sure go a long way to brighten things up on a dull day. And with pranks like these, I'm sure the boss will have a stern meeting or two afterwards.


      Yep, this hub cracked me up as I was choosing these awesome prank products. Thanks for reading and commenting.


      In the past I've worked with a comical bunch of office mates who loved their pranks. Everyone loved to have a good laugh. Thanks for your warm comment!


      Did you get caught? I bet there were a lot of angry colleagues on that day Haha! Thanks for sharing your prank idea. Your comment added a lot of value to this oh-so-naughty hub and prank products.

      I took styrofoam packing peanuts, coated them with oil, and then dusted them with the cheesoid powder from cheap Mac 'n' cheeze. I then put them in an empty cheetos bag beside the coffee maker and let the good times roll. It worked in that setting because our coffee room, being inside of a projector room, was always dark. I add a caution: If you do these pranks, don't get caught.
