5 Awesome Pranks You Should Pull Today

Updated on September 19, 2014
Don't wait until April 1st to pull your ultimate prank. It is all about timing.
Don't wait until April 1st to pull your ultimate prank. It is all about timing.

The day that most people play pranks on each other is April 1st each year. There's one problem about that, they know it's coming. Play your April 1st prank today, so they will never consider that today is the day you would make your move.

Pranks Should Be Safe.

First and foremost, pranks need to be safe. For example, you would never play a prank on someone who is driving or has heart problems, etc. If a prank is dangerous, it's just not worth it, and it's not funny. We all know of pranks gone wrong, and these people regret that they ever could have done something so stupid. Don't ever do a joke or prank that will get you in trouble, like text a random person "I hid the body.". Okay, now that the safety-brief is over, have fun, guys!

The Aerosol Febreeze Grenade Prank.

Step 1. Place a zip-tie around the neck of a bottle of aerosol Febreeze. Do not tighten the zip-tie all the way just yet.

Step 2. Once your target is in sight, or if you just want to quietly put in the room where the target is located, tighten the zip-tie all the way then run!

Mess with car subtlety over a period of days, weeks, years, until the jig is up.

This would not be subtle.

Parking Mind Games

Step 1. Make copy of friend's car key when they are asleep or busy.

Step 2. Each day, do something slightly different to their car. The goal is to be subtle so they think they are going crazy. Change parking spaces one over, or re-park the car slightly askew. The sky's the limit, but do it just enough where they won't ask you about it at first.

Step 3. Wait until they say "Come on, your doing something to my car aren't you?". This should be hopefully after weeks of messing with them. You could admit to your crime, or you could say "No, it's just in your head, man". Then leave the car key on a string on their rear-view mirror the next morning as a present. Leave a note stating how funny it was to see their face each day.

Counter Joke: If you realize that someone is doing this to you, secretly do it right back to them. This will mess with them more because they will be confused why you are not reacting to their prank, and they will start questioning themselves if they are the one who is crazy.

Author's Note: I got away with this joke for nearly 7 months.

Soap Turned in to Steal-Wool Prank.

Step 1. Buy the exact type of bar of soap your friend owns.

Step 2. Paint clear fingernail polish on your friend'a bar of soap, and let dry. Place the soap back exactly where you found it.

Step 3. Wait until you hear your roommate say "What the heck?"...,,."I'm going to kill you!". Now run.

Step 4. Keep your hygiene gear in your locked room for the remainder of your life.

Step 5. Give them a new bar of soap.

Counter Joke: If someone tries this joke on you, don't react. Place the soap under the water so it looks like you used it. They will get more brash and place more fingernail polish on it each day wondering why you are not reacting. They will start thinking they are the person who is crazy, or at least that you are.

Plastic Wrap Their Office Prank

Step 1. Got to the dollar store and buy 10 boxes of plastic wrap. If they have a big office, you may need to buy more. It's all about the size of their office, and how far you want to go with this joke.

Step 2. Wait until your friend or nemesis leaves for the day.

Step 3. Wrap, wrap, wrap.

Step 4. Arrive to work earlier than them the next morning. Make sure you are in a spot where you can see them, but they cannot see you.

Step 5. Tape the prank on to your cellphone, then upload to You tube.

Counter Prank: If this ever happens to you, never react. Go through the whole day if possible, as if nothing is wrong.

Caution: Never do this prank if your friend will see clients the next day. If your in the military, wait to do this prank on a day where no SNCOs or officers are in the building.

The Cream Cheese Deodorant Prank

Step 1. Buy the same brand of deodorant your target wears. Also, buy a box of refrigerated cream cheese as in the picture.

Step 2. Throw out the contents of the new deodorant in the trash. If you want to be nice (and make the prank more copacetic at the end), throw away their current deodorant, so you can give them a brand new stick at the end of the prank. It will be nice if they are almost out of deodorant anyways.

Step 3. Place contents of the cream cheese into the deodorant stick container, then refrigerate until an hour of the prank. This means you need to hide the deodorant in the refrigerator. Don't keep in the refrigerator until the last second, because the deodorant stick will feel cold And give you away. You just want the cream cheese just hard enough to pull the prank.

Step 4. Shape the cream cheese to look like the deodorant.

Step 5. Place deodorant back where they had it.

Step 6. Just wait till you hear the explanatory from the bathroom.

Step 7. Hand them new stick of deodorant. You may want to toss the deodorant to them and run.

Counter Joke: If this happens to you, don't react. Wait until the next morning until they ask you to pass the cream cheese; then hand them your pranked deodorant.

I hope that you enjoyed this hub. If you have any good pranks that you know of, sound-off below in the comments. Thanks!

      LOL These were fun. I might suggest a caution on this: cats and birds can be allergic to febreeze, so don't use it in a house/room that has those.

      Thanks. I would've never thought of these by myself. Maybe I'll give a few of them a try.

      These are awesome. A much lower energy prank we used to do all the time: freeze a coworker's car keys at the bottom of a cup of water. They'd have to thaw the cup out in order to drive home.
