Introduction: Egg Prank

Picture of Egg Prank

In this Instructable, I will teach you a funny and rather mean prank. Try it on your friends and family! If you like it, please vote for it. ;)

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

In this Instructable, all you need is:
-an egg
-a door

Step 2: Pull the Prank

Tell your victim that you are going to do a magic trick on them and tell them to put their thumb and index finger through the crack on the side of the door opposite the door knob (the crack that usually has 2 hinges). Assure your victim that you are not going to smash their fingers in the door. Place the egg between their fingers and tell them to not let go.

Step 3: Leave

If you know the person very well, then you can leave for about 3 minutes (at most). Come back and say "April Fools!!" if they hadn't already given up and let the egg drop and break. You can now take the egg out of their fingers and hope that they aren't burning mad. Have fun with this prank! ;D

you could also tell someone to put their index fingers on the edge of a table and put a full glass of water on top of their fingers

Just saying, you can slowly lower the egg in your fingers until you reach the lower hinge, and then pass it on to your other hand under the hinge and then lay the egg on the ground safely...:)

Couldn't you just slide it down to the floor and open the door slowly to get it?

coolrobot (author)2009-07-07

you could just throw it in the air and run on the other side to catch it =)

CamWaite (author)coolrobot2009-08-24

only a ninja could do that with two fingers on the egg

Evidenceremoved (author)CamWaite2010-03-24

or get to the other side to catch it.

Doesnt seem that good

travderose (author)Finest_Potato2014-10-13

I think it's a pretty awesome prank

Epicfall2 (author)2014-03-24

I dont get it

mariomaster856 (author)2010-12-20

most of my rooms are carpet so i dont wanna clean up :(

So then the egg doesn't break 'cause it's carpet

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

One thing you've got to remember is that they dropped it, so technically, they have to clean it up

By the way, great prank!

use the good old vinegar and bicarb!
soften the mess with vinegar and wipe up any loose bits.
sprinkle bicarb over the mess and add a little vinegar to make a paste
Let it foam, and work the paste into the mess.
Prevent the mess from sticking to the carpet by mixing the mess occasionally
Allow to dry and vacuum the dry mess up.
remove excess waste with your own way!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this was copied from a book. The book "101 practical jokes" has this prank in it.
but i like the actual instructable!

acabrera7 (author)smeagle2013-02-07

By Glen Singleton! I have that book somewhere

RaniaMomo (author)2012-03-16

lol, i left my bro 30 mins and he didn't drop it ! what a good bro loool

gayle1949 (author)2012-03-11

Oops I meant 3 minutes. They would be really mad after 30 minutes!!!

gayle1949 (author)2012-03-11

You could boil the egg so that it doesn't really make a mess if they drop it. They wouldn't know it was boiled but when you showed them after they held it 30 minutes that would make them even madder!! teehee

carterburwell (author)2009-06-25

this is sooo funny! i did it to my sister!

Epic WIn! I have a mate who is a a trumpeter, and I made him put both hands through the door and hold his $2000 Shilke Trumpet. I came back a few minutes latter and he was really pissed, but he wasn't going to drop his Trumpet!

Duuuuuuude. I play the trumpet... I would hate whoever did that to me.
But I admit, that would be funny.

How the  heck did he fit two hands between the door and the wall? The hinges would need to be impractically big.

Kaiven (author)carterburwell2009-06-28

And? :P

carterburwell (author)Kaiven2009-07-15

she cried, so I set her free then she ran and told my mom... so I put the egg in her bed. when she sat down.........

Details deatails we need details

carterburwell (author)Matt214972010-07-26


If I did it to my sister, I would have an eggy floor.

Sasza (author)2011-04-02

I did this to my dad a few years ago and he was so mad, it was pretty hilarious. But he stayed there because I did it where the egg would fall in his room if he dropped it.

Football viking boy (author)2011-03-25

I tried this on my sister and after about 30 seconds, she dropped it. I made her clean it up. :)

natalie0031 (author)2010-10-17

lol. this is in the breakfast category!

NatureBoom21 (author)2010-09-23

two hands. move it down, use 2nd hand to pass hinges.

CookieLuver (author)2009-07-27

I tried this on my brother and he dropped it immeadiatly and i had to clean it up

neonix (author)CookieLuver2010-04-15

Looks like the joke was on you. :P

Tobita (author)neonix2010-09-20

Yolk was**


Izokay (author)2009-04-04

What if they just open the door?

Shadow Dragon (author)Izokay2009-04-05

They can't. Their fingers are in the crack with hinges...

killinc (author)Shadow Dragon2010-04-02

They could just move the egg downwards and then drop it.

fireblast_1212 (author)killinc2010-04-04

that's true

Amby-chan (author)Izokay2010-03-29

THey can't. Open the door too far, squished fingers. Close it too far, squished fingers. plus, I don't think your arms are long enough to reach the hinges on one side of the door, while your hand is touching the other side.

elyador (author)Izokay2009-07-07

the door is already partway open.

Minifig666 (author)2010-02-24

 Now I'm off hack my doors so they have the hingey gap...

MangerAN (author)2010-02-07

Well...this prank done on me and i just applied pressure on the egg with closing the door and the egg was stuck and i was able to remove my fingers. Still applying pressure i walked around and took the egg.

BrainFartInc (author)2010-01-20

I don't get why this is rated so high... Nobody wants to put their fingers through the doorcrack this way and if they would I don't think they would think twice about dropping the egg...

if you were the person getting 'pranked' you would just think they're gonna break your fingers

ducttaped (author)2010-01-02

this sounds kinda boring
