Introduction: How to Make a Prank Pen

Picture of How to Make a Prank Pen

Nothing is better than pulling a harmless prank on your friends or family. Here is one that I made that you can add to your list.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Here is what you need:
  • 2 Pens (I used Bic)
  • Pliers

Easy enough!

Step 2: Take the Ink Refill Out of One Pen

Use pliers to take the ink refill out of the pen. Make sure you get the whole front section off.

Step 3: Take Cork Out of Second Pen

With pliers, and some elbow grease, take the "cork" out of your other Bic pen. This may be a little tough, but don't worry it can come out.

(For anyone confused, the cork is the stub on the opposite end of the pen.)

Step 4: Reattach

Take the cork you just removed from the other pen and stick it into the original pen. It should slide in pretty easily.

Step 5: Have Fun With Your Friends

You are finished! Place the cap on one side of the pen, and go at it!

The reactions of people are priceless.

Have fun!

how is this supposed to work

the "pen" will not have a wrighting tip! the end caps replace that. it is not the biggest shocker but it is suprising.

 You don't need to use pliers.I always remove this with my hands.

freekofnature (author)2009-12-01

is there any other way to get the stub off.  i tried my barehanded and that didn't work either.

You can also make a double sided pen from the leftover parts.

I wish I was around for that contest. I'd try so hard to get one... I'm gonna laser engrave my own this year. I'm so glad my school has a laser cutter.

It's cool, but I'm kind of confused. I don't really get the concept.

I know it's funny, but somehow, I just don't see the joke.

I'm just like Bart Simpson in that episode of The Simpsons when he sells his soul to Milhouse or however you spell his name.

Just kidding.


I want to try this out on my dad and my brother, and my mom too. :P

+5/5 stars.

Ok, so you ask your mom or dad to sign your report card. Hand them this pen. Ok, they think it is a perfectly normal pen. They take the cap off, "oops, wrong side of the pen. Wait, the other side has no pen." "Oh nick you are quite the jokester!!"

GorillazMiko (author)Brennn102008-06-01

Hahahaha, "Oh Nick you are quite the jokester!!" If you didn't realize, I put "just kidding". :P

Brennn10 (author)GorillazMiko2008-06-01

Doh! I didn't catch that.

Jackhole (author)2008-06-01
