Trust No One: April Fools' Day Pranks

Trust No One: April Fools' Day Pranks

One of the most light-hearted, gag-filled days is upon us - that's right, April Fools' Day! For a full 24-hours, we're required to believe nothing and trust no one. Friends and family play harmless jokes on us, while big brands spend months figuring out the perfect prank to play on their followers.

Now while we're not playing jokes this year, we have a handful of innocent shenanigans as inspiration for this goofy holiday!

Autocorrect Shortcuts:
Grab your bae's iPhone overnight and go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut. Change simple answers that they're likely to use throughout the day (such as no, yes, okay) to wacky words phrases that will confuse not only them, but the recipient.

While you're at it with their phone, change your contact name to 'Mom' or 'Dad'. Have some fun pretending to be someone else and sending un-mom-like texts.

Wine O'Clock:
Replace your roomie's Saturday night bottle of red wine with some non-alcoholic grape juice. But remember: don't dump it down the drain. Drink up!

Condiment Toothpaste:
Yikes! Don't get angry when your roommate realizes that you swapped out their toothpaste with mayo. Buy them a new tube of toothpaste in forgiveness, but prepare for retaliation!

Relationship Status:
A classic. Shock your family and friends by changing your Facebook relationship status to 'engaged' - and to add a little bit of spice, throw in a stock photo of a ring onto your news feed.

Or... announce a pregnancy with your spouse. Make sure he's in on it, or else things could get messy! Caution: be prepared for hundreds of comments & messages, and lots of disappointment once the day is over.

Tacos, margaritas & babies. A celebration with friends & family for our baby girls!

No Coffee Beans:
It's simple - just pour their coffee into a Ziplock bag and hide it away in a safe place. Leave nothing except a single bean in the coffee bag and watch the roommate crankiness develop.

Or alternatively, swap out their coffee for decaf and watch the true #IWokeUpLikeThis moment reveal itself.

On this day of jokes and pranks, just remember...

Nothing but monkey business...
