This prank is old school, but nevertheless funny. If you have an unsuspecting roommate or friend, sneakily substitute salt for sugar in the sugar bowl and wait. When they wake up or get home from work, ask if they want to share a cup of coffee or tea with you and try to keep your poker face while they spoon the salt crystals into their beverage. The reaction is always priceless.

Poop Cookies

This probably made your face squish up with disgust, but that's what this prank is supposed to accomplish! If you live with a friend or partner and have a dog, bake these cookies, leave one out on the floor (away from the dog of course), and wait until the prankee enters the room. When he or she does, say, "Is that what I think that is?" Then, walk over, pick it up, sniff it, and take a bite. They'll practically faint!

Flour or Powdered Sugar Ceiling Fan Prank

If you're not afraid of making a huge mess, try this April Fool's gag. You'll need to carefully put flour or powdered sugar (or baby powder) on the top of the blades of a ceiling fan. If it's connected to a light, just wait until the person you're trying to prank comes home and watch mayhem ensue!

Chocolate Covered Cheese Ball Prank

Talk about an unexpected snack. No one would ever expect to bite into what they think is a Whopper or chocolate ball and find a crunchy, cheese ball underneath. While chocolate goes with a lot of things, it's not the best or most appetizing combo with bright orange cheese flavoring.
