Whether you play April Fools Day pranks on your loved ones or not, you have to admit that it’s awfully fun to watch someone get scammed. Like really scammed. But remember, the pranks are meant to be funny and not mean.

In case you were wondering, April Fools Day is not a 20th century creation. April Fools pranks can be traced back to 1582 and in some countries like New Zealand and the UK, only exists until noon. After 12 noon, you’re the fool if you’re caught playing a prank. But here in the United States, we get to play pranks all day long…

If you’re looking to play a prank on someone but have no clue where to start, consider these April Fools Day prank ideas:

1. Auto correct in MS Word Change a co-worker’s auto correct setting in MS Word to auto correct for a really common word such as “the.” The trick is changing what it corrects to. Pick something crazy (but not obscene!) like “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” or something equally annoying and every time he or she uses “the”, auto correct will display your work! This works especially well on the older generation!

2. Change the clocks After your roommate (or boyfriend or whoever) goes to sleep, change all the clocks in the house by an hour…or four. There’s nothing more infuriating than taking a 4am shower just to realize you’ve been punk’d. Oh and make sure you set the clocks ahead and not back. You don’t want anyone to show up late to work and get in an serious trouble, right?

3. Salt & Sugar Switerchoo It’s self-explanatory and works wonders at the office.

4. You’re PREGNANT?!?! Tell your parents or significant other that you’re pregnant and try your best to keep a straight face. Play along for as long as you can. This works especially well if you’re unemployed, already have four kids, just had a breakup or are single.
