Got Pranks? April Fool's Fun
APRIL FOOL! Okay, so its not April Fools Day yet. Im just getting ready gotta practice. I have so many pranks to pull on my family and friends that I cant decide which ones to do. Ill tell you some so that you can be getting ready for that foolish day. (You arent mad at me, are you?)
Take your pick:
Put dad on the sofa for the day. Stuff a pair of his pants and a long-sleeved shirt with newspaper. Add socks and his slippers to the bottom you can even cross his legs. Cover his head (which is actually a pillow) with a newspaper. Fold his arms across his chest and under the paper. Tell the kids to be really quiet and not wake dad because he isnt feeling well today. Hey, you might have a nice day of peace and quiet for a change!
Sew up the fly on dad's, or the teenagers, underwear!
Glue some money to the driveway, or onto the sidewalk, and watch them try to retrieve it.
Short - sheet the bed. You dont know how? I cant believe it. I thought everybody did this for the newlyweds first night at home. Just tuck the top sheet in at the top and turn the bottom of it up so that it looks like its the part that you turn down and get under. When they try to lie down, they cant stretch out their legs. Ha hahahaIm already so tickled!
Start the day off right. Put dog food in the cereal box and add a little green food coloring to the milk.
Take all their socks out of the drawer, Vaseline the bathroom door, grease the toilet seat with butter or oil, lace their tennis shoes up backwards, turn their clothes wrong side out, and turn the hot water off right in the middle of their shower.
Punch a small hole in an egg with a pin or needle, remove the inside and refill with water. Right in front of the kids, crack it over dads head. (then run for your life!)
On the night before, while theyre sound asleep, easily lift them from their beds and switch them to different rooms.
Replace the filing in Oreo cookies with toothpaste.
Set their alarm clock to 2:00 a.m.
Put cellophane tape on the telephone hook switch to hold the ringer button. Down. When it rings and someone answers, it will just keep ringing.
If you have the guts, you and dad get up, wake the kids at 3:00 a.m. and tell them to get dressed for church, to go to the park, to do something anything (talk about it the night before). When they sit down for breakfast have a note on their plate April Fool-Its only 3:00 a.m.!.
Cover the toilet bowl in Saran Wrap. (leave a little sag for safetys sake)
Tell the kids youre getting a maid and they wont have to clean their rooms ever again.
Call your neighbor at midnight and tell him his refrigerator is running and he might want to catch it.
Tell your husband that Mr. Panda or Mr. Bear called and asked that he return his call. Give him the number to the zoo.
Change the time on all the clocks get them there EARLY.
Put ketchup on your arm and pretend that you have cut yourself really bad. Ask one of the kids to run get you a towel, fast; youre bleeding badly!
Tell Dad you're stronger than he is and you can prove it. You'll both take the strength. You'll do it to him and then he can do it to you. Have him sit down and place a full glass of water in his open, right hand ask him if it hurts. Of course, he will say no. Then, place another full glass in his left hand. Now, youve got him he's stuck. He cant move without tipping the water over, and he cant put either one of them down!
Do be a little foolish today. Laughter is good for you! It unstops your sinuses, makes your fingernails grow, helps you lose weight, and increases your bust size. Hehehe
So... SHARE.. what pranks will you/did you pull?
