Aww! April fools day is upon us, and it is time to plan out your prank(s). April 1st is nationally known to be accepting to deception, misleading and downright breathtaking jokes. If planned out correctly you could gain notary or have a lasting memory with family, friends or customers. For some of us pulling off a memorable hoax comes naturally, but for most of us, we need a little help on coming up with a creative idea. Pulling off a legitimate prank that has comical value can be one of the hardest things to do. You can easily overdo it or come up way short of a punch line. With that, we have compiled a list of April fools pranks to help get you started. Please note that all jokes will have varying responses depending on the recipient's tolerance to hilarious pranks.

Now To Your April Fool's Prank List:
Yes, we are self-promoting with our number one April fools prank. Sorry, but we are not sorry. Now there are numerous things you can do with an Anonymous Potato to make your Aprils fools joke memorable. Before we get into some ideas lets address the elephant in the room. Yes, you could necessarily tell someone in person or write your prank on paper and deliver it to them, but we feel you have a better chance of invoking the feeling of truthfulness through our novelty gift. There is something to be said for having the message delivered from a third party telling your custom story or a message. We believe the Anonymous Potato is attention-grabbing and offers authenticity that is needed to deliver the punch line. Now you will need to plan it out as April 1st delivery is not always guaranteed, but having your joke come a day or two before or after can add to the climax.
We don't advocate destroying people's property or hurting them (physically or mentally), but everything else is fair game! Happy pranking!

2. Insect Lamp
No one likes roaches, and no one likes roaches in their home especially next to their longing areas.
Print out some roaches off internet images on black paper, cut them out and tape them to the inner part of a lamp. The shadow will give off the impression that roaches have infested the house!
3. Ballon Prank Fake Out
Okay, so you want to get your boss without completely pissing him off. Then the balloon prank is for you. Just buy a pack of 100 so balloons, blow them all up and stack them in a clear plastic bag that is taped to the door.
4. Attach Air Horn To Co-Workers Seat
Now if you have a work environment that thrives on April fools and you want to stand out, then this one may be for you. You will need to beat the targeted co-worker to work and raise their chair higher than usual and tape the airhorn to the bottom. When the co-worker goes to put their chair back to the standard height, they will be blown away.
5. Mouse Prank
6. Hang Kim Jung Un picture on staff wall
lol do we have to explain this one?
7. The Office Copier Prank
In our example, we have Nicholas Cage, but you can use anyone or anything you want here. Every time someone makes a copy, they will have the image you taped to the copier on it.
8. Paint Soap With Clear Nail Polish
Now, this is just wrong, lol. Putting on the nail polish will prevent the soap from lathering thus preventing the person from actually cleaning themselves.
9. Chewbacca Voicemail Prank
Okay, identify a person you want to prank that has a good personality and then print out these signs with their phone number on it. You will be surprised by how many voicemails they will receive.
10. Toilet Roll Spider
Like the insect lamp prank, you will need to print and cut out the spider. From here all you have to do is place it and tape it.
