What's the best practical joke you've ever played on someone? My husband and I are always messing around with our friends trying to "out joke" eachother. We've done all the usual stuff...woopie cushins, saran wrap over the toilet, rat in the cupboard. I found this piece of sponge foam in a craft store once and it was in the perfect shape of a cake. I brought it home, put frosting on it, decorated it and gave it my friend for her birthday, I told her it was sponge cake. She was surprised when she tried to cut into it. She put it in the fridge for her husband to find. Tell me what jokes you've played on others or good gag gifts you've given away or gotten.

Only one I can think of that really stands out was when I rigged a friends cash register. We were working at kroger and I rigged her line and register where all the exterior panels would fall off the first time she opened the droor. It was hilarious. Both she and the customer jumped back with this "It wasn't me" look on their faces.

I invited my new Gf to dinner at my mother's house on Christmas day but told her my mother was very poor and could not afford many plates, etc. so she must bring her own crockery and cutlery. Sure enough on the day she turned up with a big bag of the same. My mother stared blankly at her as she was handed this bag solemnly. A dreadful silence ensued neither sure what to do or say. Then my GF explained she understood my Mother was poor and could not afford so much. Of course, my F was a little angry to begin with but we all had a damn good laugh about it later. all the best urban

That's a good way of breaking the ice when meeting your mother for the first time.

Well, I grew up with 5 brothers so there was a lot of pratical jokes flying about. I do remember one that was quite funny; I put a bucket of ICE COLD water on the ledge of my brothers door, so that when he opened the door it would fall all over him. It worked realy well, but not only was he there his gf was, and some of their friends too. So funny. You have to understand though, he put a snake in my bed that day so I just had to get him back. I also brought out the picures of him play little baby prince for me when he was 5, so cute, but I think that I had to sleep with the lights on and the door locked and barred that night.

we have 2 dogs, and one of them poops in the floor once in a while. So we found some fake poo and put it in the spot where she usually goes. I told my husband if he would pick it up, I would steam clean the carpet. He was so mad, he didn't want to do it and was getting more mad by the minue. He snatched up a grocery bag and while cursing the dog, picked it up and realized it was fake. We all laughed. The best one was one time my husband went into the gas station to pay for gas. So we turned the radio station on to a song that was horrible, turned it up really loud. He had to walk up to the car and look as if he were the one jamming to the awful music while pumping gas. His face was beet red.

My mom was cooking Thanksgiving dinner,and I snuck into her house, she was alone, I saw her go downstairs to the laundry room, and i went into the kitchen, turned all the condiments upside down, dressed the turkey in a tin foil outfit, with a plastic crown and a foil cape, and set out the potatos like peasant-worshippers of king-turkey, who was standing up in the basting pan.I heard her coming back up the stairs and rab out and drove back down the road to our apartment, and called her on the phone, just to see what her reaction to all of this was.She had to go back through the kitchen, so I asked if anything were wrong and she said no, cool as a cucumnber, and has never admitted that anything was up that day.Now, either she's pulling my leg, or expects a visit from king turkey every year.Either way... freaky,lol.

I did the saran wrap over the seat one, and i also like to do the one with ketchup packets. Put ketchup packets under the toilet seat, so when someone sits down, it shoots out and gets all over their underwear/clothes/scares them. It works best in public restrooms, or in your house on April Fools Day.

My cousin and I used to do the ketchup packets when we were kids and sitting in Mr. Hotdog with our grandparents. It was alot of fun, especially for a couple of 10 year olds. We really thought we were getting away with something!

One time I gave my boyfriend at the time a fake lottery ticket that said he won a million dollars. I was laughing so hard it was difficult to keep a straight face, unfortunately he didn't think it was so funny, after jumping up and down and hooting and hollering, and I had to tell him it wasn't real. I guess I would have been disappointed, but I still think it is hilarious.

I've seen those tickets and they are so funny. Can you imagine the disapointment though when you find out you didn't win? I think I'd cry.

My favorite practical joke to play is in the winter when there is a lot of snow, I would call up a couple of my friends and throw snowballs at oncoming cars or people. There was this one time when I someone had gotten out of the car and started chasing us (well mostly me). So I was running for at least ten minutes and I look behind me and there that guy is running right behind me and saying stuff incoherently. Then he tackled me down picked me up by the collar and gave me a huge lecture and wanted to know where I live. After walking for ten minutes he let me go. He said something I couldn't hear, but as soon as he turned his back I sprinted all the way back home. The next day my friends and I made a plan of where to meet up if that happened again, and the first car that came by was the same person who caught me yesterday. You can probably guessed what happened next. From this I learned to never repeat the same action that got me in trouble before.

Do you keep your friends when you do this? Seems like they'd be pretty mad.

Go to a restaurant supply store and get some of that realistic "demo" food that they have... Demonstration foods are usually used in display cases and department store kitchen and dining room settings because they absolutely look real and appetizing but are mainly made of plastic or rubber... They come in all types of cuisine, and meats, vegetables and fruit can be arranged on platters and placed in pots and pans so that when your unsuspecting "Snack Snatcher" comes in looking for a quick bite, he or she will get the surprise of their life!:) Be sure to set up a video camera to catch the reaction, cuz it's gonna be a good one! lol!

I have the best one that i use ALL the time and it works like a charm! This practical joke is for the friend that takes FAR too long in the bathroom getting ready. You will need: -Your target to have a bathroom cabernet (you know the ones above the sink where you keep medecine and toiletries) -A piece of cardboard -Lots of MnM's (or if your feeling REALLY mean use eggs!!) Firstly, you go to the victims bathroom cabinet and you take the top shelf slighty off so that it is at an angle.. hard to explain so ill try use a diagram! Before: After: _ _ | | _| | | /| _| _| If that makes any sence, the person is on the left facing right. Next you put the cardboard and hold it tight against the cabinet and pour MnM's (or eggs!) in. once it is full comes the tricky part. You close the cabinet door as much as possible but DON'T let go out the cardboard or else the MnMs will go all over you! Once the door is shut against the cardboard, you carefully slide the cardboard out. The Effect: When your victim is next taking a long time getting ready and opens his cabinet to find his/her toiletries MnM's (or eggs) will rush all over him. Hopefully this will get the message accross that you are unhappy with the time it takes them to get ready! WOW! Was that complicated to explain or what?! I will be quite surprised if anyone manages to understand it! I tired!

when we were visiting a relative a few years back in america we bought a plastic lizard in the souvenir shop . when our friend came in through the door we all jumped on the sofa and started screaming and pointing at it . he immediately started closing all other doors , edged his way to the patio door to allow the thing to escape.we were in fits laughing when it didnt move but we pretended we were scareed.eventually he touched it gingerly with his toe and jumped back but it still didnt move. so he whacked it with the broom , by this stage we were openly laughing so he realised he had been conned , it was good fun .

That's funny. I love to freak people out. My husband & kids scared the daylights out of me once when my youngest child was just a few months old. I had laid her in her bassinet for a nap and my husband snuck in the room and placed a big hairy very life like spider in the bassinet with my baby so when I went in later to peek in on her I saw this spider in her bassinet with her. I freaked out and screamed, grabbed the baby while my husband and kids were laughing at me. I was almost in tears. I'm deathly affraid of spiders!

The victim is on the pot in the dorm washroom. Everyone grabs a bucket (we used the waste baskets from our rooms) and fills the buckets with water. Take a paper bag and set it on fire, toss it under the door into the stall. Yell fire as everyone tosses the water into the stall. Needless to say the fire as well as the victim get very wet. This one fellow in the house was hit a number of tumes and took to relieving himself in other locals. We followed him a couple of times and nailed him in many parts of the residence. Later of course we conspired with our victim to get back at the orignal instigator of the drill. The guy in the stall had a bucket of water, and when the the instigator tossed the bag in we all hit him. _____________________________________ Its is common for draftsmen to sprinkle SCUMEX (powdered rubber eraser) on tracings prior to doing any drawing on it. This reduces smearing of the pencil marks and such and rsults in a cleaner tracing. At a former employers we had replaced the Scumex at one draftsmans desk with dried parmesian cheese. It looked about the same. It was extremely intresting watching him draw for a while and then begin to smell the paper. Took the poor dude almost 10 minutes to guess that he had been gigged! ________________________________________

Once Physics teacher asked students in the class, " Isac Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell on his head, he discovered the gravity.Isn't that wonderful?" One student stood up and said,"Yes Sir! if he had been sitting in the class looking at the books like us, he wouldn't have discovered anything."

really funny! lol! but I have not done that for a long time because I am very busy these days. I wonder if I can tell a joke I played on myself? About two months ago, one day, I was going to attend a meeting on my major. But I get up a little later in that moring, so I hurried to put on my formal clothes, and rushed into street to catch the bus. Fortunately, there came a bus when I arrived at the bus stop. I was very excited. When I was on the bus, I noticed that some passengers stared at my feet. So I looked down to find what happened. wow, I was still wearing my slippers! I was very embarrassed at that moment!! Also I didn't know How I could run so fast even with slippers. So I get off at the next stop, and bought a pair of new shoes in a shop, then went to the meeting! now I alway check if I am wearing the slippers when I leave my home. That's a joke of myself. have a nice day!
