Water Sprayer April Fools Prank

About: He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? But to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God. -Micah 6:8

In this simple April Fools prank, I will tell you how to booby trap an ordinary kitchen sprayer, but it's best if its made of white plastic.
Step 1. Stuff You Need: 1 or more unsuspecting victim(s), 1 kitchen sprayer, and clear tape.
Step 2. Booby Trapping It: With the water OFF, squeez the little springy lever thingy on the back down. Next, wrap tape around it, securing the lever to the handle. Return it to its original position, with the nozzle pointing towards you. 
Step 3. The Results: Now that the sprayer is booby trapped, the next time some unfortunate person washes their hands, does the dishes, or gets a drink, they will take an unexpected shower. I've got the same person three times in a row!

    We get this every year...
    Why doesn't the thing turn on when you "squeez the little springy lever thingy" - that is what it's supposed to do?

    It seems to be a silly system where you have to turn the thing on twice. It seems especially daft if you have to run the tap at the same time - it would be badly plumbed-in - why like that?

    The Reason is that by putting both the tap and sprayer on the same shutoff valve, the faucet then only needs one good shutoff valve. The other valve (the one in the sprayer) can then be a cheap, lightweight, replaceable valve, because then that valve isn't the one responsible for making sure it doesn't drip.
