I found some pretty good ones here, here, and here. Enjoy...or not!

This didn't come off the web, technically, (I saw it on G4) but it's good fun anyway:

Go to a co-worker's PC when they're away and take a screenshot of their desktop, hide the file and then make it their wallpaper. Put all their icons in a folder marked "April Fools" and hide it in their C Drive. Voila! Desktop looks normal but none of the icons work.

If the co-worker is especially stupid, tell them that there's an "April Virus" going around and they should do a search for "April" on their hard drive.

Easy to fix, too. Just replace the icons over where they show up on the desktop and change the wallpaper back.

I though Gmail's prank was pretty innovative. I feel for it because I thought it was an email scheduler, you know make an old email look like it got lost in the aether. Or to schedule an email to send at a certain time in the future.

Once I got to the e-flux capacitor I remembered what day it is :-)

cpete430: My girlfriend of four years is going to put her Facebook status as single. I'm expecting an eruption today.

Man I did that in high school, it caused a ridiculous amount of drama. Good luck with the fallout...

I don't see what you did there. ;D

Todays pranks at the office:

1) Ran a spare USB mouse from the back of an employee's computer, under his cube wall and into the cube next to him so his mouse can be 'taken over' at will. Been using this one sparingly for three weeks now leading up to today, Friday he requested a new mouse

2) There is a 'keyboard virus' going around Training Ops- a sign was posted last night in their area;

WARNING
------

Keyboard virus detected 3/31/08 @ 6:47pm

If your keyboard does not work, do not call helpdesk.

They are aware and are working on the issue.

Thanks.



Then I unplugged the whole department's keyboards...

We put a sign on a managers back that says "Deport Me" He's been here for twenty years but isn't a citizen yet. He's had the sign on his back for about half an hour now and hasn't noticed.

After doing this a few months back, i thought i would share it with the rest of fark...

Cut out some bite size images of Rick Astley's face, take a small piece of scotch tape and tape it underneath the laser reader of your coworker's mice the next day at work. When they come to work their mouse won't register anything to the computer. After a few minutes of frustration, they're bound to look underneath it. Basically a variation on the Rick Roll.

One co-worker in my department, however ruined it by calling IT to come help fix their mouse issue. After wasting a good 20 minutes with an inoperable mouse, he wasn't too thrilled with me.

That's nothing. We sent this to our parents after the first ultrasound:

No pranking going on @ work today :(
I read about a study that found that people over 40 do not find any humor in pranks. Thus, my workplace is udderly humorless.

TraeHova: James72: Thinkgeek (new window)

but, specifically The Betamax to HD-DVD converter (new window)


Great. Another website jumps on the Sony/Blu-Ray bandwagon.

Why do we have to have just ONE form of electronic media these days? Personally, I hope this particular "format war" never ends. Because I, for one, am never buying another Sony product ever again. If they stop making HD DVD discs, and regular-ass DVD discs, I'll (begrudgingly) switch to downloadable media.


/Fark Sony


Wow, you clearly have absolutely no idea what is going on, do you?

HD-DVD is dead in the water. Toshiba has stopped production. It's gone the way of Betamax. And do you *really* want to have two players so that you can play some movies on one and other movies on the other? Because they don't make movies for both formats. Well, they do *now*, but three months ago you'd need to own both players to be able to play any movie you wanted.

jhum101 fails it.

bujungnsbbyvnz is ROT13 encoded.
A decoder can be found here.

But before you decode the message you need to say the chant. "Owa Tafu Liam". Repeat it over and over, and start to say it faster until you reach an epiphany:
ROT13("bujungnsbbyvnz")="ohwhatafooliam"

/jhum101 is a fool
//is that ironic?

Yup, I've gone from engaged to single for the day...I've already gotten several messages and even a semi frantic phone call. Totally worth it.
