Do/did your kids play jokes on you?

Through the years my kids have played some really good pranks on my but none as good as the one that was played on the father below. "A Parental Nightmare... A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed nicely made up and everything neat and tidy. Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad". With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands: Dear Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with you and Mom. I've been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice. I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes and because she is so much older than I am but it's not only the passion, Dad, she's pregnant. Joan says that we are going to be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood, enough for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Joan has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it and trading it with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for cancer so Joan can get better; she sure deserves it! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren. Your son, Chad P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my desk drawer." lol...I would have gotten even! xoxoxoxoxo

that kid certainly had a sense of humour. My grandmother played a prank, well she was always playing pranks, but she played it on her granny whom she lived with, her granny was bedridden, parallelized all for as long as my grandmother new her. She couldn't get out of the bed. One night my grandmother dressed up like an old hoodlum or bum on the street, and had a big bag and pretending she was stealing the silverware from the cabinet. The cabinet was just outside her granny's room so her granny could see everything. Her granny couldn't get out of bed but she was screaming, George, George, (my granmother's father) come quickly he is robbing me he is robbing me. George wasn't in the house, my grandmother knew that. After she took all the silverware, she waited a few minutes and came back with it, and took off her disguise, of course George gave her a beating for that.

Hi raydene! Well, my nieces and nephews love playing jokes on me and I get even by acting as if I am about to cry or sometimes I will wear an angry face. However, they knew that I never ever get angry at them but when they say that I am about to cry, they will all rush towards me and hug me. haha... But that is a good funny story my friend. I really laughed upon reading the last line about the report card. I guess, if it is my hubby reading that, he would not be able to read the whole letter and just rushed out of the house and look for his son if ever we will have one. haha.. Just my thoughts. Take care and have a nice day!

That's a great joke, isn't it? Makes you think. Our kids did play jokes on us but only on April Fools Day. One of the worst ones I can remember was going to the toilet and suddenly seeing a pile of dark brown dog pooh on the toilet seat which looked ghastly. I anxiously called my daughter asking her about how it got there when we didn't have a dog. She came downstairs straight faced saying that she didn't know anything about it. But she couldn't keep it up for too long because I must have looked quite distressed. She suddenly picked it up with her hands, waved it in front of my face and burst out laughing as it was made of plasticene. But it looked so real, I have never forgotten that joke. I thought it was quite good, actually.

That is a good way in making his report card look very good even if it wasnt. I would be totally shocked if I found a note like that!! How did your husband react after he had read the whole letter?? Bet your son was anxious when he came home, not knowing whetre his dad would laugh or be angry!! lol My older brother was a typical joker, hiding behind doors and scarying people. He was did to my twin brother while he was walking through with his dinner, which he ended up dropping. My mum was annoyed with my older brother that she made him eat teh one of the floor and told mr twin brother to go to the kitchen and get the one from there!! Best of it, it was my older brother's favourite meal!! ha ha It didnt stop him from doing it again.

OH, that is hilarious!!!! My kids play little jokes,but thankfully they'renot "big" enough yet for anything of this caliber. M 6 and 7 year olds(at the time) waited till dad got home from work, and ran upstairs. They came down real slowly once they heard him come in, and snuk down the stairs, kind of hiding behind each other. Dad asked,"Ok what happened, what did you do?" The proceeded to explain how they were playing with a ball upstairs, they knew it was wrong, la te dah...a window got broke. He freaked for a minute, till they started rollin in laughter, they busted out "april fools...gotchya!!" It was the best prank I've seen in a long time. But still holds nothing compared to this one. I would have found some way to get back at my kid....Like leaving a note for them in response like the bottom of the note wasn't there. I'm off to find you, if you get this, be sure to clean up your act where you are cuz I'm bring the cops with me...la te dah.

Lol! obviously it was a joke! If you know your son then it's really a joke! well, at first sound so unbelievable for you as his parents. But if your husband is a highblood or have a heart disease then it's really not a funny joke raydene..But, one thing that i can say to your son. HE is a SMART kid.
