Step 2: Remote Hack

You can prank someone who watches a lot of TV with one simple trick. 

Just look on the front of the remote for the little LED, and cut a small piece of black electrical tape about the same shape. 

When you smooth it down over the LED it will hardly be noticeable at all. 

Now when your victim goes to use their remote, they'll be frustrated and confused by why it doesn't work anymore, even after they change out the batteries.

Step 3: Toilet Bowl Surprise

Carefully remove the lid to the toilet tank, and pour in 10 - 20 drops of food coloring. 

Replace the lid, and now the next time your victim goes to flush, they'll get an unexpected surprise. 

There's a good chance the next person in the bathroom will be a little concerned as well.


Step 4: As Loudly As You Can

This little prank, is on your local drive through. 

Download the drive through prank sign, print it off, then cut along the dotted line at the bottom. 

Now simply add some tape, and post it near the microphone on the drive through station. 

You can get a lot of people to fall for this one because the signature makes the notice seem authentic.

My favorite was played on a fellow at work who was always on the phone instead of working. One of the guys stuck a very tiny piece of scotch tape over the tiny microphone hole on his phone so he had to shout so a caller could hear him. Bonus: After a few weeks, they took the tape off, but he kept shouting.

Idea: if you have heavy things, and you don't like the company, put those heavy things in the business reply mail...

Think twice about this one. Technically, this is "misuse of the US Mail" and that has severe penalties (if they complain). I just use their envelope to send back my name label and print 'cease all mailings' across it.

The food coloring prank will only work with those people who don't put the toilet seat down before flushing, and that is really unhygienic. Eeeew :P

A way to solve any problems with the orange juice cup one is to walk over to a table or a flat surface and put down the cup in your mouth, then grab the cup from one of your hands with your mouth and use your free hand to grab the cup from your mouth then set it down, then do the same with the one on your other hand. Then drink the orange juice!

Alternatively, find the biggest rock you can, put it in a box, tape it up and stick the return address envelope on top.

I've done something similar before, a few times, but I didn't include other mail... I just mail back the junk mailers own junk, with "No Thanks" written on it.

This is hilarious, I'm seriously considering doing this... but would anyone happen to know if this could be considered illegal? I know there are pretty strict laws for many things concerning the US Postal Service.

Is that legal to put it on their property?

Probably not
