    "I let him believe he was going to magic school for two whole weeks before I crushed him."

    by Evelina Zaragoza MedinaBuzzFeed Staff

    Depending on which end of them you're on, pranks can be a lot of fun! So when Reddit user Adventure84 asked the internet, "What evil prank have you pulled off?" we knew the answers would be hilariously chaotic. Here are some of the best ones!

    Fox

    1. This Jim Halpert admirer:

    NBC

    "Over the course of two weeks I gradually moved my coworker's monitor closer to the front edge of their desk, like a quarter inch each time. Eventually it got so close that the keyboard barely fit. She kept complaining about her 'stupid small desk.' I then moved the monitor back, just as slowly, over a few weeks, and she never caught on."

    2. This fed up student:

    "People in school used to always take my Gatorade, so I took an empty bottle, filled it with dyed salt water, and let them take my drink. Not gonna lie, it was hilarious watching one person spit salt water in the middle of class only for their disbelieving friend to do the same."

    3. This cereal killer:

    "I picked out every last marshmallow from my sister's box of Lucky Charms. Then I took a photo of myself eating a bowl of just charms, printed it, and put in the bottom of the bag. I then resealed the bag, hot-glued the box, and put it back in the pantry."

    4. This simple deception:

    A&M Films

    "I lived in Korea for a bit. When my mom came to visit I told my Korean girlfriend that it was an American custom to greet older women by touching elbows. I told my mom the same story about Korean customs. It was a thing of beauty. They were not pleased."

    5. This crafty crew member:

    "I used to work for a cruise line. A passenger once asked if the crew lives on the ship full-time and I said that the crew leaves every night to fly back to Miami and then returns each morning. She walked away satisfied. After that cruise was over, our manager was sharing the passenger evaluations with us and was confused about one in particular. It was a woman who had stayed on deck 14 and had complained that she couldn’t sleep at night because of the noise of the crew helicopter."

    6. This clever camper:

    "I was at summer camp when my cabin's leaders found a little snake that wasn't doing so well, so they decided to put it in an old terrarium in our cabin. A few of the guys were nervous about it. The next day when the leaders decided the snake was well enough to release, I asked that they keep quiet about releasing it, and when the other guys got back to the cabin and found no snake in the terrarium...chaos ensued."

    7. This dedicated deception:

    "My mum's laptop wallpaper was a picture of her granddaughter. I copied the picture 100 times and made her wallpaper a slide show of the same picture over and over again, so the file would technically change but nothing would visibly change on the monitor. The pictures would change every 10 seconds. On one of the images I painted a tiny little curly mustache on her. So randomly for 10 seconds my niece would have a mustache. My mum thought she was either losing her mind or had a computer virus, and every time the mustache popped up, it was gone by the time she tried to show anyone."

    Troidin

    8. This coffee crime:

    NBC

    "My mom can't stand sweet things. When I was 6 or so, she left her newly brewed coffee on the table. My older brother encouraged me to put a lot of sugar in it as a prank. Mom came back and took a sip of coffee, which she immediately spit out. We started laughing and saying it was a prank, explaining that we put extra sugar in it. She looked at us as if we were stupid because apparently I put salt in it instead."

    Morilicious

    9. This rebellious registrar:

    "One summer in college, I worked in the registrar's office, registering all the incoming freshman. A professor who was a mentor of mine was teaching a freshman seminar and asked me to hand-pick a class for her. She asked for straight-A students, high SATs, whatever. So I picked a class for her. 15 students, all named Sarah."

    10. This loud introduction:

    Hughes Entertainment

    "Two of my friends have never met each other. Before they spoke I told both of them that the other one was a bit deaf. They shouted at each other for a few minutes before they realized that I'm an asshole."

    11. This tattletale:

    "When I was 13 I was at my friend's house and he thought it'd be funny to pee off the deck onto the feral cats in the yard below. I told him I was going to tell his mom, then went inside and told her, 'When Trevor walks in just act disgusted.' He walked in and she told him how disappointed she was in him (having no idea what he did), to which he replied, 'I swear to God, Mom, he's lying; I didn't piss on those cats.' Watching his face as he realized he had just told on himself was one of the highlights of my youth."

    jaygabriel99

    12. This vengeful diner:

    Fox

    "A friend kept trying to steal my sushi off my plate at a sushi restaurant. While she wasn't looking I stuffed it full of wasabi, put a bit of fish back on top to cover my tracks, and pretended to not be looking when she started reaching towards it. She tossed it into her mouth, started chewing, and immediately realized she'd fucked up. Five minutes of coughing, muffled screaming, and copious amounts of water later, she'd learned her lesson."

    JUSTJESTING

    13. This frightful farter:

    "I farted under the covers, then pointed at the ceiling above my girlfriend and shouted, 'SPIDER!' so she'd throw the blankets over her head."

    Teagalim

    14. This marker menace:

    Disney

    "My freshman year of high school, the big craze at my school was this 50-pack of Crayola markers (IDK why exactly, but fads are fads). A friend of mine had a pack that she was obsessed with. She had them organized in perfect color-gradient order. So of course any time she left the room I’d mix her markers up so she had to fix them when she came back. This went on for a month until one day in study hall she left, but not before turning to me and saying, 'Don’t rearrange my fucking markers.' So I didn’t; I rearranged the caps instead.

    You see, these markers were solid white apart from the caps and a little tiny nib at the other end. She got about halfway through 'fixing' them when she noticed she was holding a marker with an orange cap and a turquoise nib. I can’t tell you the joy I experienced when she looked at me and said, 'You didn’t even move the markers did you?' I laughed so hard I was asked to leave the study hall. She didn’t talk to me for two weeks."

    15. This sly senior:

    "At my high school senior class picnic way back in the late '80s, I spread a rumor that the brownies I brought were pot brownies. Half a dozen kids went to the nurse because they were 'so stoned.'"

    itsEDjustED

    16. This burping boyfriend:

    "My girlfriend and I went to a candle store. I had eaten three helpings of chili the night before and had bad chili burps. I grabbed one of the candles with a sealable lid, burped into it, and handed it to her to smell, opening the lid right before she leaned in to smell."

    BlueberryStan

    17. And finally, this Hogwarts hoax:

    Warner Bros.

    "I got a Harry Potter calligraphy set for my 13th birthday years ago. It had Hogwarts marked paper, envelopes, and everything. My little brother ate all of my birthday chocolates from my aunt that night, so I plotted my revenge. Next September I copied out Harry's Hogwarts letter word for word in green ink, only changing the name. I let him believe he was going to magic school for two whole weeks before I crushed him."

Here is a video and story of a guy that trolls people with his fake but real mask.

    A Caltech student stole the Huskies’ master plan a few days before the game while the Washington Huskies were visiting Disneyland.. The best pranks are Rube Goldberg affairs that take years of planning and an absurd amount of work, preferably distributed across dozens (or more) of people.. The hackers, who are said to number in the dozens and cut across several class years, spent four years assembling the necessary parts and programming the wireless switches to make the game work.. Each window in the building had to be equipped with a colored LED panel, which drew 3 watts and was thermally linked to the window, inside a machined aluminum casing, which students made themselves.. Two students ran for student council on a platform of changing the school’s name from the University of Wisconsin to the University of New Jersey to look better on alumni resumes, and relocating the Statue of Liberty to Lake Mendota.. One day, deep in the Wisconsin winter, students were surprised to see the Statue of Liberty’s crown and torch poking through the ice covering the lake.. The prank was the brainchild of Jim Mallon and Leon Varjian, who also concocted the absurdist platform of the Pail and Shovel party, which had vaulted them to power over the student government’s $70,000 budget—which the Pail and Shovelers promised to convert into pennies and let other students dig into, hence the name.. Rather than throwing one away, Ed filled out both forms; one for him and another for a fictitious person named George P. Burdell, whose name was an amalgam of Smith’s principal’s name and the name of a family friend.. By the early ’30s, other Georgia Tech students had gotten in on the act, and had a truckload of furniture delivered COD to a frat house under Burdell’s name.. Poor George only made it halfway; around his 12th mission, a senior member of the bomber wing—a Georgia Tech graduate—happened to glance at the personnel roll and brought the joke to an end.. Today, the 110-year-old George P. Burdell is still active in Georgia Tech student life.

    Our conversation went like this:. Me: “It says gullible on the ceiling.”. Brother: “No it doesn’t, I’m not a idiot”. Me: “fine if you won’t look then ill take a picture of it for you” (pretend to take picture and show them the picture you took earlier). Brother: “I guess it really does” (looks up) “Fuck you”. Leave a note for a family member, roommate, or coworker to call back a Mr. Lyon with a number for the local zoo.. Work place- every year I always put clear tape under the optical mouse- I work in a call center.. 🙂 Every year, it works like a charm.. Step 4: Gain access to your friend/family member’s vehicle, roll the window down, scatter the broken auto glass you acquired, and place the rock with attached note.. My friend had this large black dildo in her underwear drawer which went missing a few days before Christmas.. She takes a deep breath, and removes the rest of the paper, it ends up being some trinket filled with candy that he bought from the dollar store, she looks up to him and he has the biggest grin on his face, turns out he hid the dildo and planned this to mess with her.. I’ve had a beard for 3 years, have been dating my SO a little over a year.. He had a chocolate calendar(one of those that counts down the days until Christmas and you get a small piece of chocolate each day) and he opened it, but before he put the chocolate in his mouth he had an idea.. “Uh, my names soapstud, I’m here for the chewbacca roar contest” Of course I was smashed and so was everyone in our group so we did not realize it was April fools day and it must have been 2 in the morning.. Poor guy was getting calls all day and his voice mailbox was filling up with chewbacca roars.. Best prank I’ve seen to this day.

    Here’s a clever prank for you: Make the victim’s computer actually type the word “SPACE” every time they hit the space bar.. This one is really simple to do—just create a shortcut to shutdown.exe on the desktop, and then change the icon to a regular folder, so when they double-click the folder to see what it might contain, they get a nice system shutdown notice instead.. If they are using XP, the effect is nice and dramatic, and you can even have some fun with the shutdown time… on Windows 7 you won’t be able to show off your geek skills quite as well, but they’ll still see something that will confuse them.. You’ll probably want to flip over to the Language Bar tab and set that to hidden as well, so they won’t be able to figure it out easily.. This usually works out better if the other person has a desktop PC, because you can hide the wireless mouse or keyboard receiver behind their PC, and then every so often type an extra letter, or move the mouse slightly.. If they do have a laptop and a wireless mouse, you can simply replace their wireless mouse with an identical-looking one, since it won’t work for their PC.. They’ll assume their mouse batteries are dead, and you can move the mouse pointer around the screen with their mouse.. If they happen to have a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad, you can actually tweak this setting right in the Control Panel –> Mouse dialog, but otherwise, check out our article covering the script method, that should work anywhere.. Take a screenshot of the desktop with the icons where they are, set it as the wallpaper, and then hide the desktop icons.. Move the desktop icons around, or create bogus icons, take a screenshot, and then set it as the wallpaper.. Combine this with the shutdown shortcut so when they do figure it out and try and open the folder… it’ll give them the shutdown prank too!

    Benjamin Franklin Who knew that in the days before Benjamin Franklin went on to become a famous US President, he used to be a female impersonator?. His brother wouldn’t let Franklin publish letters himself, so in rebuttal, he decided to write letters to the newspaper impersonating a widow, ‘Silence Dogood’.. Francis Dashwood Francis Dashwood, 18th Century British Politician, had a notorious reputation as a womaniser and general party-animal.. His day job was a salesman, however he spent much of his time deceiving newspapers by sending in fictional and normally, ludicrous, stories.. Thomas Edison When Thomas Edison was at the height of his fame as an Inventor, people believed that he could invent just about anything.. He published a story in 1878 which told of Edison’s latest invention, the ‘Food Creator’, which was able to create food out of thin air.. He held an exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art, New York, not that anybody noticed… For weeks prior to his ‘exhibition’, Stromberg had wandered around the Museum pretending to be a student with a notebook.. The Earl of Hardwicke The Earl of Hardwicke, Philip York and his historian friend, Thomas Birch, decided to play a prank on the other historians and academics of the 18th Century.. This mock-Tudor paper told of the English defeat of the Spanish Armada, breaking news at the time – however, this would have been spread by word of mouth as actually no newspapers existed at this point in history.
