April Fool's Day Prank Ideas:

• Sneak into the victim's car and adjust everything: radio at full volume, wipers on high, air conditioning on max setting, seats pushed all the way forward, parked at the bottom of the Iowa River, etc.

• Point at your victim's chest, acting like they have a spot on the shirt. When they look down, sleep with her or his significant other.

• Make a batch of caramel apples and pass them around to a group of people, your victim included. Only, make sure your victim gets the one that's actually an onion and laced with PCP. Then, tell your boss you think your victim is on drugs and should be urine-tested.

• When your victim is in the shower, sneak in and grab their clothes, all the towels, and the bathmat. When they emerge from the shower with nothing to dry them off, take naked pictures of them and post them on the Internet.

• Put some salt on the victim's toothbrush, and then stab them in the leg with it. It's funny, because the salt will sting in the freshly opened wound.

• While the victim is asleep, reset all their clocks ahead two hours. Then, just before the real time they normally wake up, burst into their bedroom and tell them they're late and that there is no such thing as true love.

• Serve your victim a piece of cake. After they've eaten some of it, mention that they now have about 12 hours to find the antidote before they will die. The prank being: there is no antidote.

• Offer to make a sandwich for the victim. Then don't. Wow … you're a dick.
