Mastering The Office Prank

Updated on January 24, 2014

Lighten Up! Office Fun for Everyone

You spend eight hours a day with these people! Eight hours a day! Eight hours with people you don't even get to pick. Eight hours with the guy who has something to say about EVERYTHING. Eight hours with the sci-fi dork who lives in his parent's basement. Eight hours with mother earth who eats tofu for lunch and keeps breast milk in the office fridge. Eight hours with people who would eat your lunch if it didn't have your name on it!

Sure, you all get along - most of the time.

But, you must laugh to retain your sanity. Without laughing with (and at) your co-workers, the cubicle's half walls might just close in on you - lodging you between a file cabinet and your PC.

Office pranks are perfect. When you laugh with someone, you become friends - even if you have nothing in common. Office pranks can bring an office together. Oh jeez, forget the sappy stuff. Office pranks are just funny as hell !

Some Simple Pranks

Easy Pranks Ideas for Your Office

  • At the end of the day, everyday, empty someone's stapler leaving only 2 or 3 staples. They will have to refill it everyday, and go crazy.
  • Advertise a colleague's job as available. Leave their number with extension for contact. Be sure it is well paying and with low qualifications.
  • Each day move a co-workers desk an inch.
  • Drop a lemon slice or maraschino cherry into someone's water bottle.
  • spray glitter
  • Move everything off someone's desk and into the office fridge.
  • Play "Eye of the Tiger" every time your boss walks in.
  • Replace photos of friends and family with that of say Scott Baio, Eugene Levy, Drew Carey, William Shatner, or The New Kids on the Block. Also set their screen saver to a slideshow of these photos.
  • Drop a rubber duckie into the watercooler when you are changing the bottle.
  • Remove the ink from every one of their pens.
  • Open a container of lice powder, and leave it in the bathroom. Say nothing to anyone. Panic will slowly rise.
  • Put a brown paper bag in the office fridge labeled "squirrel"
  • Before an important meeting, replace everything on a co-workers desk with the Hello-Kitty version (pens with feather tops, pink pads, ...)
  • Tape a really long memo or calendar to the inside door of the elevator.
  • Install the clapper on something (anything)

These guys went all out turning an average cubicle into a house complete with a roof, siding, and even a window box.

The Office has increased office pranks at never before seen levels. It has truly brought office humor back.

Putting all the items on Dwight's desk into the vending machine was classic. But, popularizing the Jello prank is the greatest office prank success for The Office.

Inappropriate Pranks

Some pranks and practical jokes are not acceptable for the workplace

You don't want to be 'that guy' - that guy who did something terrible because he thought it was funny (and no one else did).

So, what not to do:

Don't prank people you don't like. If you are not their friend or at least on good terms then do not prank them. That's more in the harassment realm. Pranks should not be done in a mean way.

Don't do sexual jokes at work. You have no idea how this will be received, and sexual harassment is not funny. Even if you think that person would be okay with that particular joke, you don't know for sure, and the person in the cubicle next door may not be. Keep it clean. It is possible to be funny and clean. But, if you have to do something a little sexual, do not target it at one person.

Safety first. Don't do anything that can actually hurt anyone. A trip to the emergency room will spoil any prank. Greasing the doorknob may be funny, greasing the floor is not.

Don't cause damage. Embed their keys in jello, not their flash drive. If you ruin or break something, the laugh is lost.

Everything else is fair game.

Computer Pranks

Simple Prank Ideas to Pull On Their PC

By leaving your computer unattended and unlocked, you are pretty much asking to be pranked.

Right-click on the desktop and click properties. You can then make one or more of these changes:

  • change the desktop image to something funny
  • change the size, font, and color of the windows
  • switch primary and secondary buttons on the mouse (make mouse left-handed)
  • Flip the screen upside-down by hitting CTRL-ALT-Down Arrow. To get it back, CTRL-ALT-Up Arrow
  • set a new screen saver
More computer pranks:
  • PRANK:
  • Switch the
  • keyboard keys
  • M and N.
  • Switch some letters on the keyboard around (simply swapping M and N gets a great result)
  • hit print screen and save the image in say Paint. Then set this as the desktop, and hide start menu. They will see the start menu, but it won't work.

    Detailed Instructions

  • In MS Word, change some of the AutoCorrect settings (Format, Auto Format, AutoCorrect). These auto corrections are meant to automatically correct a commonly typed mistake, or enable you to type shorthand. You can set it to change any word or their name to something different. For example every time they type "To Whom It May Concern" you can have it automatically change it to "To you or you have no right reading this" or to change "the" to "fogizzlest". Also fun to change words their misspelled versions...that to dat, was to wuz, there and they're to their, or to and too to two. (That sentence made me giggle.)
  • Visit a few websites that you know they use (which require logins). Type in a different (funny) login and when it asks if you want to save it click yes. So next time they go to google for example and try to login it will have the user name "ILoveEugeneLevy" or something like that as the default.
  • Save random nonsense as a favorite in the browser. Examples: Barry Gibb Fan Club, Clay Aiken Fan Club, Hello Kitty Fan Club, ...
  • Change people's icons (right click on the icon, click properties, shortcut, and change icon). You can get free and funny icons online at sites like

Pick Up A Few Things - A Few Tools of the Trade

George Bush Magnetic Dress Up Set
George Bush Magnetic Dress Up Set

Not so much a prank, but it does make the office fridge more fun - also add a set of poetry magnets for more fun.

Magnetic Poetry - Office Kit - Words for Refrigerator - Write Poems and Letters on the Fridge - Made in the USA
Magnetic Poetry - Office Kit - Words for Refrigerator - Write Poems and Letters on the Fridge - Made in the USA

Leave messages on the office fridge, or on metal door or desk. Write poetry, stories, or use as captions for photos. Not a prank, but still not actually working.


Few More Ideas - These Pranks Bring Laughs...Slowly But Surely

  • Print out a much of random photos and make files for them. Then file in the correct place in the victim's cabinet. For example, file a photo of a Sock Puppet under 'Sock Puppet". A few more photo ideas...Queen Elizabeth, Monkeys (put in a bunch of monkey photos), World's Largest Chair, Noses (a bunch of noses cut from magazine).... Especially good if they use interns or temps, as they will think the victim is psycho. It's a slow and subtle prank, but sometimes they are the best.
  • In someone's messy office, put a set of sea monkeys on a bookshelf. Care for them until the person discovers it.
  • Switch the nameplates from everyone's desks and doors.
  • Visit and sign them up for the most random catalogs you find, to their office address of course. The fun will start rolling in just a few weeks. May I recommend catalogs for Ballet Costumes, Wedding Gowns, Medieval Replicas, The Alzheimer's Store, Dog Fashions, ... The key is to order several catalogs opposite their personality. And, if there is a stupid nickname that they have earned themselves, use that.

Let Not the Parking Lot Be Safe

Go ahead...prank their car.

So, perhaps your victim is a hermit and never leaves their office. Or, maybe they don't even have an office. Then frankly they have left themselves vulnerable to the car pranking. This is a great prank to pull off right under their nose.

But, please, do no companies don't like that. Don't put duct tape or glue on a car.

      Really good idea for a lens, I did not know that it was an "art form"! I pranked a colleague once by having my boss agree to me doing his annual review, he was really upset even before we got to pull the prank so I called it off but the way he was stressing about it made up for it!!

      When I started work, 50 years ago, in a London shop, the manager sent me out on my first day to buy a bag of earthing sand "to insulate the cellar" in thunderstorms. I trudged around London to hardware shops looking in vain for this stuff, until someone said, 'your boss is winding you up!' I returned to a shop full of grinning assistants.

      Back in my day working in IT in the 1980s, computers were still in their infancy, but we all had early IBM PCs with those smallish 14in color monitors with plastic filters that stuck on the front to cut glare. My prank was I got in the office early one day and made some black paper (done by running a few sheets out the photocopier with the lid open) and slid it behind the filter screens on everyone's PCs. When people got into the office and switched their PCs on, they complained they weren't working. Had the tech people scratching their heads for ages before they figured it out!

      When I got back to office there was unusual silence. An hour later I needed to open my briefcase which I had left behind when I went out to lunch. As I pressed the button, the girls started giggling. They had filled it up with telex tapes and spent typewriter ribbon. Happened in the early eighties.

      The best pranks are the anonymous ones. My wife had a coworker who sent everyone in the office a birthday card- the same card- every year, on their birthdays. Not a word was written in any of the cards. Not a mean prank, for sure, but no one ever figured out the mystery. The company closed its doors, and on the last day, a card arrived in the mail, addressed to the company. It said- Happy Birthday Infinity.

      My favorite prank came when a coworker gbought a new radio to listen to while at work. Another coworker crawled behind his desk and unplugged the radio. The owner would bang on the top of his new possession and the guy under the desk would plug it in again. As soon as the owner sat down, the prankster would unplug the power again. this went on for twenty minutes or more.

      This was in a large room, and soon all of us were in on the prank, as the radio owner became increasingly frustrated with his new, "defective" radio.

      @filmic: Swapping the 3 with "E", 4 with "A", "I" with "1", "B" with "8" works fine, too.

      Love the post and I have actually put a co-worker's keys into jello and it was great fun.

      I'm not much of a prankster, guess that leaves me in the vicarious position. Once my sister told a co-worker that the CEO wanted her to share at a board meeting on April 1st to tell about her position from an on line employee point of view. The co-worker said she couldn't do it, so my sister said to just give the CEO a call, which she knew the co-worker would not do. A couple weeks passed of the co-worker saying she couldn't do it and being encouraged that she had the expertise and would do beautifully. Finally, the morning of the day arrived and the co-worker read the "April Fool" note from my sister and was quite relieved. There was no planning in this prank, just a prankster's moment in time.

      Office people should just start pulling pranks. Most of them need to lighten up and this will increase productivity too. Bosses should encourage this !

      Attach a microphone to your PC. Record your workmate's phone ringing, and save the wav file. Play it back and observe. ** works even better if you route YOUR sound output through THEIR speakers**

      One for the computer-geeks.. Take off the cover of the desktop PC, and place their office phone inside. Run the cable through one of the expansion card slots, so it looks like it should be there. Ring them. Observe.

      hahaha! not sure if i just missed this one but a good prank for people who can't touch type is simply to replace the keys (letters) on the keyboard. Believe it or not this one actually worked and the "prankee" had to call IT support to ask why, when he pressed "T", was "I" coming up? Classic.
