Accident in the Shower

Introduction: Accident in the Shower

What makes a prank a good one? I think that if the prank is easy, cheap, effective, and harmless, it is sure to brighten not only the prankster's day, but also the victim's. This one made everyone's day this April Fool's and was easy, cheap, effective, and harmless.

Step 1: What You Will Need...

All you need for this prank is:

A Jar of Nutella. (Peanut Butter might work just as well.)
The Shower
A butter knife might come in handy...

Step 2: Choose the Right Time

As with many tricks and pranks, you need to set them up at a time when you are in complete secrecy. April Fool's is my favorite holiday, so I set all my pranks up at midnight that morning. Other good times would be before the victim gets home, while they're involved in a movie or book, or during a nap. All you really need is to make sure they don't know what you're doing.

Step 3: Setting Up the Prank

Take a little glob out of the Nutella using the butter knife and then use your finger to gently place it in the shower. You could place it anywhere but I did it right on the drain to make it look like the water drained out around it. Remember, the goal is to make it look as much like poop as possible. If you used the knife to put it down, it may not look convincing...

Step 4: Other Fun

I also had a little more fun and put some in the toilet paper roll. This prank is to make it look like someone already wiped.
Just unroll the toilet paper roll a few sheets, and then spread some Nutella on it. This time I did use the knife to give it a wipe effect. Roll the paper back up and your done.

Step 5: Standby

Have a Nutella sandwich as you wait for a victim to unsuspectedly use the toilet or take a shower.
