These April Fool's Day Pranks Are Almost Too Easy to Pull

By

April Fool's Day is the kind of day we love to roll our eyes at... until it actually comes along. 

At that point, when we wake up on April 1, we know we have to have eyes in the backs of our heads and question everything we see, hear, or read. It's hard not to have the tiniest bit of FOMO and wish you had planned some kind of practical joke on your friends, family, or coworkers — but who has the time for that!

Don't fret, we've got you covered. Even if you didn't cook up an elaborate scheme this year (there's always next), you can still get in on the fun. Keep reading for 8 quick pranks you can pull today to celebrate April Fool's.

Identify someone at work or school eating something in the morning. We think dorms or catered office breakfasts might be the best possible scenarios for this one.

Walk over to them like you're trying not to laugh and ask "How's your breakfast?" Walk off smirking no matter what they say. Throughout the day, pepper in as many "How're you feeling after your breakfast?" and questions of that genre as possible. Maybe drop in a subtle "You seem a bit pale, maybe it was the breakfast..."

If you play this mind game right, they'll actually feel unwell.
