April Fools Jokes
The first of April or as it is better known April Fools Day, is a fun day for everyone to play practical jokes on each other, but playing the perfect prank on your friends becomes a little more difficult every year.
Last year you may have caught someone out with the old classic bucket of water balanced on top of the door, getting them to sit on a whoopee cushion or even thrown a stink bomb outside their home, but those people will be expecting the same things this year and to catch them out you need to plan ahead and use a little more imagination.
Planning a practical joke takes time and there are rules that must be adhered to, to ensure that no one gets physicaly hurt, that no property is damaged and that your victim will be able to take the joke with the intended humor behind it.
The video clip opposite> is very funny, but it could lead to injury to person and property and it could even lead to death, depending on where the joke is played out. you want your practical joke to be remembered for a very long time, but you don't want it to be remembered for the wrong reasons.
Remember a joke may seem funny at the time but you should always think about safety of the person you plan to prank.
When Practical Jokes Go Wrong
No matter how well you plan a practical joke, things often go wrong, and when that happens it can go any of three ways, the joke is even funnier than you expected, the joke is a complete flop and doesn't work or the joke can go too well, causing your victim more injury than you planned and ending up in a visit to the E.R.
This clip> is one of those occasions.
Scary Practical Jokes
Scary jokes often bacfire, you creep up on someone wearing a mask or an animal costume and tap them on the shoulder, the victim turns around shock clear on their face, and suddenly basic human instinct takes over, the victim attacks you punching kicking hitting anyway he/she can, self preservation takes the pleasure and fun out of any joke, But it is still funny to watch.
Some good ones
When a practical joke goes to plan,it is hilarious and people remember it for a long time, even the victim laughs at themselves in the end and it is great fun all round, it makes the careful planning and preparation all worth while and you have a conversation piece that both you and your victim can talk about for years to come.
Remember though revenge is sweet, if you can't take a joke, don't dish it out to others.
