Cause havoc in your office for April fools today

You have been warned – it’s that time of the year again:

This year I am not as creative as last year’s Steers lefty burger (which was a rip-off from Burger King a few years before), but I do have some tips on how to avoid the embarrassment in the office:

Clipped: Make some copies of a paperclip. Then put them into the paper tray of the copier. People will go nuts trying to find the paperclip stuck in the printer.

Weakling: Steal all the victim’s pens and replace them with pens that have the caps glued on.

Chewy: Offer to make a sandwich for the victim. But don’t remove the wrapper from the slice of cheese. When they bite down they’ll get a chewy surprise.

Hurry Up: Change the cursor on the victim’s computer. Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Mouse, and select the “Pointers” tab. Then change the cursor to the hourglass image. Now the victim will think their computer is stuck on a task endlessly.

Coming or Going: Use a computer to print out some signs that say “PUSH” and “PULL.” Go to a local store and paste them on the door (on the wrong sides of course!). Then stay nearby and watch the confusion!

Force Field: Block off a door with plastic wrap. When the victim opens the door and tries to walk through, they will bounce right off.

Anticipation: Hint to the victim that you are plotting an April Fool’s Day prank. Then do nothing. It will drive them crazy as they try to anticipate what your trick will be.

Comment on how you have been April-fooled….
