April Fool’s Day is the one day a year where people can get away with being jerks to each other. No, we’re not telling you to go out and ruin someone’s life then compensate by saying “April Fool’s!” – we’re talking about light, harmless pranks that would add a bit of suspense and a lot of laughter to your friend or family member’s day.
To honor this day, we decided to compile a list of memorable prank ideas, the fails, the brilliant, and the inspirational- to inspire what you should be (or shouldn’t be) doing.
The Gym Troll
You could go solo when you’re pranking, and troll a whole group of people in a public setting to make a menial task such as going to the gym more interesting

Or you could get a bunch of people in on it and create easy, harmless pranks that are sure to shock, but once revealed will cause fits of laughter like our friends at Just For Laughs have done

Pranks can be innocent and homemade as well, and you can trick people into believing they’ve gone crazy with the latest Jell-O bottle replica craze

Funny and Extra Annoying
Since April Fool’s day is on a Friday, serious trolls can do this a day early, or just give their poor mothers a headache at home

Don’t Be Heartless
But remember that pranks should be harmless, and should never cause anybody to cry or swear profusely.

Happy pranking, everybody! Be safe, be kind, and most importantly, have fun – but don’t be upset if someone pranks you back!
