WARNING:  These projects and results are depictions of my own personal experiences.  Although these pranks are intended to be harmless, your results may vary depending on your location, and modifications to project ideas.  There may be risks associated with some of these projects that require adult supervision, and possibly others that I'm not aware of.  You assume all risk and any consequences caused by your actions.

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.

    I was telling my friends about this awesome youtuber named Grant Thompson I just heard about and they're all like "Oh, The King of Random?"... I'm like "How have I not heard about him before?" :)

    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.

    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
