    It's almost April Fools' Day, one of my favorite days of the year. A day where it's socially acceptable for me to royally fuck with people.
    I'm kind of short on ideas this year, but I've got something good planned for my girlfriend. I found a scan of an STD test online, one which is positive for herpes. I'm going to photoshop my name and the name of the local hospital onto the form, and email it to her, saying "I didn't know how to tell you this, so here it is in an email."

    Focus:
    What pranks do you have planned for April Fools' Day this year?

    Alt. Focus:
    What pranks have you pulled in past years?

    I can't take credit for the idea, but I can take credit for the implementation.

    I made a flyer that looks like it came from the company that maintains our copiers. It says they're voice-activated now. I've already gotten my boss to yell his last name at it for about a minute before I asked him what the date was.

    I'd take a picture, but all I have is my phone and you wouldn't be able to read it. If anyone has a burning desire to check it out, PM me.

    I used to have a thing for writing fake parking tickets. Pretty sure that's illegal in someway, but damn it was fun. And it never got old either.

    I have a pregnant friend on facebook who is volunteering to pee on sticks for people.
    How very thoughtful...

    And then there's this guy. 10 bucks to the first person who can pull it off.

    I have a cowowrker that put a sticky note on the bottom of my mouse (over the sensor) that said "April Fools". I must admit, it did take me 30 seconds of moving the mouse around before I discovered it. And then I laughed when I saw it. Easy enough to pull off, I plan on stealing it.

    I mentioned this one before, but it still cracks me up. Pop the "m" and "n" off the keyboard and switch them. (Uh, don't do this to a laptop.)

    My room-mate lost his wrist-brace (he has ligament damage or something) for like 4 days last week and was losing it on us. He left it alone for about 30 seconds last night so I took it and super hockey-taped it to the bottom side of our coffee table. I'll let him sweat it out till we start drinkin' later.

    My apartment complex left fake eviction notices today, complete with a "haha gotcha" number at the bottom. Naturally after reading it I taped it back up to the door for my roomate to see. The dumbass left me a voicemail screaming about how it was all my fault, immediately followed by one saying how much of a retard he was. I'm definitely taping the sprayer on the sink once I get home.

    My birthday is today as well. I used to hate it, but I absolutely love it now. People come up to me and say "You're a fucking waste of life, I hope you die in a fire."
    Then someone else will jump out saying "APRIL FOOLS! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BITCH!"

    Don't judge me.

    First thing I do in the morning is check my favorite Baltimore Orioles blog. The headline story was the Cal Ripken is rejoining the team in a front office position to be groomed as the future manager. I almost pooped my pants I was so happy. They do something like this every year, and every year I fall for it. I always forget about this stupid day.

    I just posted fake IRR callup orders on my Facebook... this should be good. I'm gonna get everyone to buy me beers and maybe get a pity fuck out of it. Best part is I'm acting pissed like someone else is pulling the prank on me.

    It used to be possible to buy pre-marked, colored envelopes that said things like: "STD test results enclosed", "Pedophilia Anonymous", and "From your parole officer"

    I was both a perpetrator and a victim.

    I sent my boss an email saying I was putting my notice in, and I slyly (in my opinion) inserted "April fool's by the way" in the paragraph-long confidentiality agreement that is part of my signature. He didn't notice it and barged into my office not too long ago with a look of anger/fear on his face.

    I think he's finally over it.

    A buddy of mine just got a text from an old FB saying that she's a few weeks late and that her test came up positive. But the good thing was that there were two possible fathers.
    He responded with a thanks, but I haven't seen you since August.
    Her response back was dammit, april fools joke foiled.

    We concluded she was a slut.

    I just texted Mr. Pink "Did you hear Sather was fired? Messier is going to be announced as GM today."

    His response: "I told you this would happen, and hopefully Gretzky will be coach!"

    Two seconds later..."Damn you, vile woman!"

    I'm a bad wife.

    My 11 year old just spent an hour cleaning his room so that he could take the DS to school tomorrow (he's been grounded for almost 2 weeks now for lying about and not doing his homework). I think I might tell him "April Fools!" with an added "Wah-wah-wah-waaaaah" when he's done. If the kids made their beds, I would have short-sheeted them.

    This is really heartless though:

    Years ago one of my brothers crashed on the couch. The next morning another brother and I replaced the tape in the VCR with a porn flick and cranked the TV volume. When Dad asked whether or not his show had taped the night before, we said "Push play, it should have." Cue the lesbian scene and Dad losing his mind.
    He did get revenge on me years later by nailing his gf on my bed while she was on her period, but I won the battle that day.

    I'm sorry, but your father wiping his blood-and-semen-soaked dick on your bed sheets is orders of magnitude more disturbing than a porn-tape-switcheroo.

    Your father is a disturbing man.
