Top Five April Fools’ Pranks

Happy April Fools’! It’s not too late to pull a few pranks if you haven’t already. Intermission compiled some easy shenanigans to pull in case you’re looking to wreak some havoc.
Easy Pranks to Pull on April Fools’ Day

Putting Saran Wrap over the toilet seat

It’s the classic prank: lift up the toilet seat, and stretch Saran Wrap across it. Your buddy wakes up and goes to the bathroom. Grossness and hilarity ensue

Putting Saran Wrap over shampoo bottles and toothpaste

Unscrew the caps of shampoo bottles and toothpaste, and place Saran Wrap over the openings. Replace caps.

Taping the door shut

Using duct tape is always effective, as is taping up toilet paper and using caution tape. Another alternative: tying string to two opposing doorknobs.

Moving furniture

Hiding someone’s stuff is always fun. Disabled bathrooms are good storage spaces.

Challenge: the numbered animal trick

Should cost and logistics work out for you, obtain three sheep, cows or other suitable farm animals. Label them one, two and four, and place them in a public school area. Let university officials freak out as they search for number three.
