Since we're a blog base flung all over the continent one man's April Fools joke should be shared with others so that it can be foisted on the locals of another man.
outside of Troy's tweet, anybody get sucked into a good one today?
April fools to me. I thought this was gonna be a better thread!
I liked the Gmail Motion gag. It was obvious, but still funny.
I didn't realize it was a joke at first. I didn't click, because it sounded dumb. I thought, why in the world would I want to physically act my way through my email? Just another product the folks at The Google are pushing on us. Wave worked out great!
One that I'm playing on my friend is still going on. I hope he's getting lots of text messages.
That is awesome!
Dick move, but very awesome and hope it works.
Is this your open invitation for MGo users to text him regarding that awesome Justin Bieber cut out? haha
in the Rook's coffee?
Got that fucker good.
I mean, for my friend... er... cousin, yeah that's the ticket, cousin.
Great prank though. Well done!
Hahahaha so good. Well played.
Great prank....my text has been sent haha.
*I may steal this from you for next year...
I deleted the phone number because he got a TON of texts, and I don't want him to go over his monthly limit. I'm leaving the ad up just for educational purposes.
i'm late to the party...what was the prank?
"Sometimes the greatest trick is no trick at all." I think I saw it on a MASH episode. You lead someone to believe you are playing or going to play a trick on them and they spend all day waiting for it to happen, or looking cautiously or suspiciously at everything only to find out at the end of the day that the trick was the anticipation.
Made a powerpoint with a few different Blue Screens of Death, put it on loop and unhooked the keyboard. He hit the power button on a few computers before figuring it out.
Many years ago my coworker didn't lock his PC, so we remapped all of his desktop icons to open up different programs and put them all in a recycle bin. We changed his IE homepage to something NSFW and made the PC play the Victors when he logged in
Took him all afternoon to get it working how he wanted it.
Another time we filled up our boss' office with balloons.
We didn't work much at that place.
I unplugged the vacuum on my roommate.
AdBlock had an "update" that allowed you to block ads on billboards, in magazines, etc. That started my day off with a laugh.
TheChive was a cooking blog for the day. It took me a few minutes to put it together.
A good female friend of mine texted me that her fiancee had hidden/stolen all of her bras, and that she had thus been having quite an "up and down" day.
pretty cold when i saw her.
Life made me work today... Real funny life...
My hallmates completely duct taped a kid in his room at midnight last night. everything except the peep hole was covered haha. it took him three tries to smash through the wall of duct tape after he finally opened his door and it was a hell of a time
My first image on reading "...duct taped a kid in his room..." was that they duct taped the kid, not the door, and left everything but the "peep hole" covered. I thought that was funny.
He was not amused. But the bystanders seemed to get a chuckle.
so I sent an email to my manager that I was a) eloping with my girlfriend and b) going to be MIA for two weeks starting on Monday. In the consulting world, two weeks is nothing short of eternity, mind you.
About three hours later, my manager emails stating "call me, there's something important we need to talk about". He proceeds to let me know that I've been dropped from the client engagement, the partners are angry with me, and I should start looking for another project (and given my relatively short tenure with the firm, I figured I might as well pack my bags).
He calls back a second time, fifteen minutes later, basically continues the ruse until I'm at the point of stammering, and finally says "April Fools. See you Monday at the client. (click)"
That's what we call April Fools Judo, folks.
I think I just blue myself...
you did what to yourself?
I posted some pro-Sparta propaganda on a friend's wall just to see how he reacts.
I took a picture of me kissing a manikin head from just the right angle that you couldn't tell it wasn't a girl. I put it in email pic format so it was small enough that one couldn't blow it up to see the plastic skin on the side of the manikin face.
I posted the pic as my new profile pic on facebook.
I called my gf after I saw some not very happy fb messages from her with the April Fools.
The best part is some of my friends actually hit on the manikin head.
This year my gf is on a trip to Peru and I'm planning on posting a fb comment with a baby pic from her on my profile page saying how much child support I owe and see what kind of responses I get...
I called both of my parents to let them know my girlfriend may, or may not be pregnant. Always enjoyable.
Arenanet never fails to disappoint with Guild Wars. This time, they leaked a "Commando' profession, complete with skill videos and wallpapers on guildwars2.com
Nothing beats calling in an air raid against a dragon.
friend whose been dating a girl a couple months changed his facebook status to engaged
Told my friends I was transfering from UoM to state or western. The ones who believed me flipped out.
texted a buddy of mine.
My Wife: Hey am I the first to say congrats?????? Way to go big daddy!
My Buddy: On?
My Wife: The baby dude! Congrats!
Then she tried to call his wife (her friend) to tell him what she did but he was already on the phone with her freaking out.
I rang in noon in the Lurie Belltower with 23 strikes of the bell instead of 12, played Christmas music on the carillon, and this as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYJu0AXh_NI (1911 saloon piano music, of course). Maybe not the funniest gag in the world, but hopefully someone was dying to hear 'the First Noel'
I'm sixteen and I just got my license so I was planning on calling my mom and telling her I got in a wreck. Jokes on me cause me and another guy backed up into each other and I've got a grand of damage.
ESPN 2 was just showing high school basketball...
His ex girlfriend called him and was like "OMG I'm pregnant and I think it might be yours."
He immediately picked up on it being a joke, so he decided to flip it on her and said "Well, as long as we're being honest, I got back STD test results and I have AIDS."
She was like "OMG Are you serious?" He said "Yeah, I'm as serious as you are." She said "I was just playing an April Fools joke though!" He said "OH! I wasn't." and just went quiet for a little bit before admitting that he was pranking her.
Today actually was the end of a prank that started last year for me. For the last year we convinced one of my friends that another guy working out at our gym played in the NHL for the lightning before a career ending foot injury ( the lightning were my friends favorite team for some reason). For the next year this guy proceeded to wear lighting gear, talk about his experiences with fans, post pictures on facebook of him in full lightning equipment and even get kids to approach him at the gym and ask for his autograph. Today we told him it was all fake and he was absolutely shocked. In the end we probably had 50-60 people in on it at the gym and everyone kind of gathered around when we told him. Needless to say my friend is a complete idiot, but it was still hilarious.
