Senior Cierra Boehmler said she remembers a prank she pulled on her roommate: “I signed her up for Farmersonly.com without her knowing. She received three emails before she realized what I had done.”
With April Fools’ Day just around the corner, some of us are getting nervous about potential pranks, while others are preparing to pull off the perfect one. Here are some tips to help with your April Fools’ Day endeavors.
1. Brainstorm for realistic ideas. “Unless you have a separate pranking budget, you need to set realistic standards for the amount of time and money your prank will cost.” – www.Mashable.com
2. Sometimes simple is better. “It’s really funny when the person does not realize that they are being pranked, I love when they think it’s just a weird happening.” – senior Cierra Boehmler
3. Good pranks require time. “Most pranks require at least one or two accomplices, so make sure everyone involved knows his or her role in pulling off the prank well before putting it into action.” – www.ABCnews.com
4. Know your victim. “Pranking my suite mates is possible because I know their schedules so well, also it’s important to know the limits of the person you are pranking and when a prank might be too far.” – sophomore Chloe Kovitz
5. Be resourceful. “At any given time, there are bags of shredded paper across campus in various buildings, within a few days, you can collect enough paper to fill a car; wait a week and you can fill a dorm room.” – seniors Sam Acuff and Katie Brewer
If you are lacking ideas for fun pranks, the Internet is full of tips and tricks. There is still time to plan out the perfect prank.
Just remember that whatever your idea is, have fun and choose a victim with a good sense of humor.
