April Fool!

April fools


In case you didn’t know, today is April Fools’ Day.

What, you’ve not been preparing your pranks for weeks? What are you thinking?

Don’t worry; we’ve compiled a list of last-minute stunts you can pull at work if you’re short on ideas.

1. The Upside -Down Cup

You will need a cup and a postcard. Fill the cup with water and hold the postcard over the top of the cup, then flip it over and place on a co-worker’s desk. Now all you need to do is slide the postcard out from underneath the cup. Hey presto – your co-worker arrives at their desk, moves the cup and… wishes they’d brought a spare pair of trousers to work!

2. Keys Hidden in Plain Sight

Stealthily “borrow” a co-worker’s keys and add as many other keys as you can find (we all have weird spare keys on our keyrings whose locks have long since gone from our lives). When it comes to home time, they will be in a bit of a pickle trying to figure out which key to use to get into their house!

3. The Auto-Correct of Doom

Wait until your co-worker steps away from their desk and go into their Microsoft Word. Select Tools and Auto-Correct. Under “Replace” type in any word you know they will use a lot and then under “With” choose another, hilarious (but HR approved) word. We suggest “APRIL FOOL!”

4. The Language Change

Borrow your friend or co-worker’s mobile and change the language on it… but make a note of which menu options you chose to do it, so that you can change it back again later (otherwise it’s just mean)

5. The Office Jelly

This one requires a little extra planning, but we’ve all seen that scene from the office, right? The one where Tim takes Gareth’s stapler… and returns it in the centre of a jelly. All you need is a pack of jelly crystals and a big bowl to use as the mould… and a plate to put your finished product on!


Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have some serious mischief to be up to!
