My son just returned from 5 weeks at Governor's School. He has had me in stitches telling me about the pranks that the student's pulled on one another. What is the funniest prank that you have pulled on someone? What is the funniest prank that someone has pulled on you?

Well many years ago my best friend, her son and I all moved to Spokane, Wa. Our second year there we rented a house and another friend from Ma. moved out to live with us. We had our Christmas Tree spot all picked out. Marjorie had to work so CJ, Bob and myself all went in search of a Tree. We were reminded when we left to make sure it was full, 6ft tall and nicely shaped. We found the perfect tree...but the evil in us seeped out.... We bought the nice tree and a tall skinny charlie brown looking tree for $5. We drove home and hid the good tree in the garage, putting the skinny sparse thing on the front porch. Then we went to pick up Marjorie from work. When we got home after a lot of tree questions and CJ doing his best acting....claiming the tree was the best we ever had...lol We got to the house and Marjorie got out of the car, saw the tree, 6 ft tall and only 8 branches...and started screaming her fool head off....calling us idiots and cancelling Christmas...We finally got a word in and told her it was not really our tree.......Boy was she mad...for days....hehe

Well while you are taking notes... After we all stopped laughing CJ and I decorated the skinny tree for the birds. We strung popcorn and cranberries. Made peanut Butter Pinecones and rolled then in birdseed. We also hung 6 plain donuts which were quickly stolen and hidden by the squirrels...lol In the mornings CJ would tear up bread and place it on the branches like snow...until it did snow...lol You can also make cardbord cut outs of cardboad like gingerbread men or whatever and then spread with peanut butter and press into a dish of birdseed and hang.

How funny I was laughing the whole way though your story. I can see your friend getting so mad at you. I like the idea of decorating the charlie brown tree for the wildlife. Great joke and great job.

When one of my best friends got married the rest of us got the keys to their new apartment. We unpacked their boxes and cooked them dinner as a wedding gift... then we filled their bathtub with lime green Jello. Did you know it takes 40 packages of Jello to fill a bathtub?

heh well tell whoever has to clean it up that apparently Jello is bad for drains. I had figured it'd just melt and drain out.. but I wasn't correct.On the upside they thought it was so funny I was forgiven. :)

Well hubby got me once when I wasn't thinking. We were just friends at the time and I decided to give him a call. So the phone rings and I patiently wait for someone to pick up and then on the ohter end I hear, "Hello, is Dave there?". I without thinking answered "oh, sorry I got the wrong number" and hung up. The Dork still won't let me forget it to this day. *sigh*

Oh but I did pay him back years later. He was standing in the hallway here at home, and my best friend and I were behind him. I reached over and pinched his rear. Well just about that time, my friend came walking out from behind him. He gave her a double take and then grew very quiet completely devastated at the idea my friend just pinched his butt. I let it go for an hour, then I had to tell him it was me. The relief on his face was priceless!

This isn't my prank, but it's one that my son pulled on his boss on his last day of work in a camera shop in Point Loma California. He went the the camera store when they were closed and rigged up a video camera and taped himself in the storefront walking around working in his underwear. His boss had a video feed in his office so he could watch the staff out front in case they needed help or got robbed or whatever. SO, my son rigged up the video he made of him in his underwear to play on his bosses monitor so it would look 'live'. THEN, he also had a video camera rigged up to video what his bosses response was as he watched the video of my son in his underwear in the front of the camera shop!! As his boss took a bite of his sandwich, he did a double take when he saw Leon in his underwear on the monitor. He slowly took a bite of his sandwich, raised his eyebrows and said aloud, "Is Leon having a special last day??" It was hilarious!!! Then, his boss turned and called one of the other staff member's names to come to his office to see this, they ROARED!!! When Leon walked into the office fully clothed, they looked at the monitor and realized they were just watching a video!!! IT was a classic. I have a CD of it and when I need a good laugh, I pull it out and watch it. My son is quite the card!

Whe I use to do to my kids was when they where working, I would go to their place of work and move their car. I would move it a few rows down from where they parked it. They would come home and know what I had done. On April fools night one night I called I was a nurse, I called the OB department and told one of my friends that a lady came up the elevator and was in labor and layed down on the floor and was moaning. The nurse who I told grabed the prmature delivery pack and came running. Boy was she shocked when she found me at the doors of the elevator and no pregnant mom. LOL She fell hook, line and sinker. All the other staff knew it was me and it was an April fools joke.

I don't recall anyone ever pulling that one on me. I was a bad girl when I was growing up but I didn't do pranks for some reasons.
