Every year April Fool’s Day sneaks up on me. The day is usually uneventful because I don’t even remember it’s April Fool’s Day until the day is almost over. This year, I am vowing to make a change. I am planning on living April Fool’s Day to the fullest. If you need a little help coming up with some gags and pranks, I’ve compiled a list for you.

Rub Orajel on the mouth end of a cigarette so your friend’s lips will go numb when he or she smokes it.

Replace the cream in an Oreo with toothpaste and feed it to your friend.

Paint your roommate’s bar of soap with clear nail polish. This will make the bar of soap look normal but it will not lather.

Pour baby powder into your wife’s hair dryer.

Tell your husband/ boyfriend that you’re pregnant.

Place a garage sale ad for a friend’s address, with the sale to begin at 6 a.m.

Switch the “push” and “pull” signs on your doors at work.

Put plastic wrap on the toilet in your son’s bathroom.

Vaseline your co-worker’s desk drawer handles.

Borrow your freind’s cellphone to make a call and change the language on it.
