How To Enter the April Fools Speed Contest

Featured
Picture of How To Enter the April Fools Speed Contest
April Fools Day is coming! It's time to play some practical jokes and have a good laugh. In the spirit of the day, we want to see some good pranks that you can pull on someone else. Enter a great one and you can win some cool prizes!


Let's be clear up front about what we're considering a good prank. There's a fine line between a good joke and just being mean. We want to see pranks where the victim can laugh it off in the end. So therefore these pranks need to be reversible and cause no damage. We also want the prank to be creative. Show us something new!

To recap, these pranks need to be:
- in good fun
- reversible
- non-damaging

So, for example, setting up a few hundred balloons in someone's office, sure. Coating their floor with Crisco, not so good.

Enter an Instructable with photos of the construction and, if possible, photos of the reaction shots of your victims. Bonus points for video.

How come the deadline was extended to the 16th?
It really isn't. We need to push it back in order to allow people to still vote, but new entries can't be added.
The results are being posted soon, right?
Tomorrow.
Oh, okay, cool. I almost saw your office yesterday at the HQ...
How many runner-up prizes are there?
I believe one in each category.

Hmm..."Special Surprise Package" I wonder what it could be... Let me tell you what I think it is with a simple explanation on my answer. A box, or something to scare you when you open it. This would be a funny end to an April Fool speed contest (because you would be the fool) Any other guesses?
Yeah that would certainly be ideal, the winning prank by the uberprankster wins the uberprankster a prank.
Well it seems the "Special Surprise Package" has been changed to Electronic Gadgets for the Evil Genius : 28 Build-It Yourself Projects. No prank after all.
Can anyone tell me why my entry doesn't show in the contest, but when I look at it, it shows as published, and as entered...?
