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.

Step 5: At Their "Expense"

If you dig through your pile of junk mail, chances are you'll find one of these business reply envelopes.  

The return postage is paid by the advertising companies, so why not load the envelope with your junk mail, and send it back? 

You'll cut down on garbage, and this joke, will be at their expense.

Step 6: Genetically Modified Bananas

This prank works best with a bunch of bananas. 

Look for any natural brown spots on the peels where you can push in a pin without the hole being noticed. 

Rock the pin side to side a few times, then repeat the process all the way up the banana, spacing the holes about an inch apart. 

Now the next time someone goes to eat one of these delicious pieces of fruit, they'll be shocked to see it's already sliced into bite sized pieces. 

Just tell them it's probably a new brand that's been genetically modified.

Step 7: Juiced Up

Ask someone to try an experiment that will test their coordination. 

When they agree, see if they can hold a half full plastic cup with just their teeth. 

Next, have them place both arms out in front of them with their palms facing down and tell them to balance two more cups on the backs of their hands. 

Now just walk away.
