i need some fresh ideas for pranks to pull on my workers. we already do the normal stuff like duct tape each others tools, hang tool buckets from the underside of the grating,powdered chalk in hardhats, grease on door handles of truck,caution tape tied and tucked under the bumper so it blows out down the road a ways, one time we had a new guy build an emegency scaffold for a valve as soon as he was done had another crew move it to another valve, called him back in less 5 minutes to explain why he built it in the wrong place. basically i need some new material.

We have a guy who surfs the net all the time and it pisses me off because I have work to do and he screws around. He always goes to the same sites so...You can change the host and host.sam file on a machine so that when a person types in an address www.ebay.com for example you can force the browser to look someplace else...either a porn site or an internal intranet site that says, "why aren't you working" or something like that.

1. Find packing peanuts that look like Cheetos 2. Acquire orange/red/yellow spraypaint 3. String packing peanuts up and paint them until they match the color of regular Cheetos 4. Take nearly empty Cheetos bag and crush half of the remaining Cheetos, leave the other half in the bag. 5. Mix faux Cheetos with real Cheetos until the bag is homogenous. 6. Offer bag of Cheetos to coworkers OR leave bag where coworker will be sure to eat some. * 7. Sit back and enjoy the show * This prank works best if you have a coworker who is eating your food behind your back.

If you have a paper hole punch in the office,,funnel all the "dots" into the A/C vents. It will snow inside the cabin when they turn on the AC/fan.

Bubble wrap is a very handy thing to have around, get a piece of the small type bubble wrap, roll it up very tightly into a cylinder about 1" in diameter, twist it in your hands to "pre-load" the bubbles, slip up on someone working on something electrical or electronic and rapidly finish twisting the bubble wrap... sounds just like an electical arc! Guarenteed to cause the victim to "flop like a fish out of water" as we say at work. Rapidly pulling wide masking tape or duct tape off of the roll will have the same effect. "Snake eggs" - take some stiff wire and make a U shaped frame that will fit in an envelope, make a notch in each upright so that you can hook a rubber band between the uprights, take a large paperclip or similar object and place in the middle of the rubber band and wind the rubber band like the ones on a model airplane and place the assembly in an envelope to where the paperclip is held but will be released when the envelope is opened and place it in the victim's inbox, stand back and watch the excitement.

Not sure about that, but I "heard" that limburger cheese inside of the toilet paper dispensor can be a real "pain" in the ass. I heard it can knock union stewards out of work for a day or two! [;)]

If a co-worker works in a cubicle (cube farmer), there is always this classic: [img]http://www.cybersalt.org/cleanlaugh/images/m-p/officemove.jpg[/img] Send in a strip-o-gram....but make sure the person who arrives is the WRONG SEX! Have a pizza delivered...free for the victim, but make sure it has something on it he can't stand, like anchovies or roadkilled racccons. Put several drops of deep, dark, red dye into the toilet. Looks like someone's been bleeding in there. Freaks some people out most seriously. Grab the reader service cards out of every magazine you can find, circle EVERY number, and have all that additional advertising crap sent to the victim's door. Pre-paid subscriptions to magazines that are most definitely not indicative of the victim's lifestyle. Use your imagination. At the end of the day, be the last one out of the bathroom. Add packs of JELLO (in several colors/flavors!) to each toilet and throw in a few scoops of ice from the ice maker. The ice maker...oh, what fun you can have with that and a few bottles of food dye! Leave the ice scoop on top of the icemaker in the right side up position, with a big handful of ice cubes in it. If the next person who grabs the scoop isn't gentle, he gets splashed by the melted ice. CJ

first- find out exactly where your intended victim places his hands every time he climbs up a ladder(it will be the same, time every time). second, get a semi-rotten banana. peel it, and place the contents thereof right where said victim's hands go when he climbs the ladder( BACK OF THE LADDER!) the last time I did this(about 10 yrs ago), my boss/friend/I.Victim actually threw up when he discovered the mysterious substance on his hands!we all got great mileage out of that one.

I heard a story from a guy who made a bet with his shop teacher. He disabled a car engine by tracing a pencil around the contacts inside a distributor cap and his teacher couldn't figure why it wouldn't run. Someone here once suggested switching the company coffee to decaf and after everyone got over the caffeine withdrawal, switch to espresso.

Remove ALL the mouse balls from the mice in your office. Then switch the M and N keys and the O and P keys on all the keyboards. Great fun. Also the office chairs that have that lever on the side, tape it to the bottom of the chair in the UP position, so that when the mark sits down, they drop 12 inches.

We used to have a coworker that would go to the restroom at the same time every day and spend hours in there. So one day another coworker and I, came up with a plan where one of us would turn off the lights in the restroom at the circuit breaker, while the other one would shove a lite pack of firecrackers under the door. He screamed like a girl, it was hilarious.

one I heard played on a guy who abused the fact that he was union. He would grab the paper, and go into the bathroom for hours at a time. The guy always sat in a particular stall for his reading breaks, so his fellow workers simply put anerobic glue on the toilet seat. Stayed wet until the oxygen was removed....apparently the fire department had to take down one of the stalls walls, and take the seat off the toilet to get the guy to the hospital.

Once on a construction site I was working on, one of the guys broke open a stick of dynamite and smeared it inside the hatband of another guys hardhat. It gave him the most awful headache. Then there's the super glue the (blank) to the (blank). You fill in the blanks and use your imagination! Lunchbox/Thermos to table, truck, etc. or maybe the lid to the thermos, etc. You can also charge a condenser/capacitor and leave it lying around. Model "A" coils are fun also(check J.C. Whitneys) Trappers lures, doe in heat etc have possibilites also. Some of these things are not going to win you friends so be careful in the application of some of these "pranks" Not to highjack your thread but along the same lines: I once heard of a guy who found out that his live in girlfriend was sleeping around. He put on a pair of vinyl gloves, took a pair of her underwear into the woods and rubbed the crotch with poison ivy. He then put the underwear in a ziplock bag, took them home and returned them to her drawer. Of course he had no sexual contact with her after he did this. She developed a "rash down there" and thought she had contracted an STD from one of her partners. She begged his forgiveness but he "just couldn't trust her anymore". He broke it off with her and he was the "wounded party". I am not in any way advocating this, just passing on the story as I heard it. Hessian-1 out!

This one works in an office setting. If the target has one of those height adjustable chairs that breaks apart into two peices, one for the base and the other for the seat you can make his office/cubicle smell something feirce. Pull the chair apart. By the way, this prank works best on a friday evening after the target has left. Place a handfull of raw shrimp into the seat cylinder and reassemble. By the time Monday rolls around the smell will be bad but tollerable. Tuesday, there will be a foul stench and by wednesday, people will be tearing his cubicle to shreds to find out where the foul odors are coming from. They will never find it. If you have dry ice...

tools are involve eh? This one takes a little investment, but it's loads of fun. Go to NAPA and pick up a zerk (may be called a grease fitting) fitting, pnuematic grease gun, and several tubes of grease. On the victim's tool box drill a small hole twoards one of the corner in the back. Screw in said Zerk fitting, attach grease gun and comence filling. This works really great when you have access to pneumatic grease guns you can run at 150 psi that are attached to 5 gallon buckets of Royco 11 grease (nasty black aircraft landing gear grease). Also if the victim leaves his tool box unlocked, you can always use clear epoxy and resin to fill his tool drawers (best to do just after he's left for the night. Oh I almost forgot one of the greatest tests to see if your coworkers are gun shy. Take a plastic soda bottle add some dry ice screw cap on tight, and hide somewhere. Small 8 oz bottles take about 5-10 min longer for bigger ones. You can add Talc powder for added visual effect.

1. Use a black magic marker to draw a circle around the rim of their coffee cup. Next time they take a good swig it will transfer to their face. Works best on darker cups/mugs but sometimes if they are the type that doesn't pay attention, it can work on any type. The fun part begins when you start cracking up and they start doing the "what....what's so funny" routine. 2. Disguise your voice and call the coworker you want to mess with and tell them you are Agent Johnson from the IRS and that due to anomoilies that were noted in their recent tax return, they are going to be audited. 3. Leave a post-it note on their desk with the name "Major Storm" and the number to the local weather service. When they return the call, the first thing that comes out of their mouth is typically "Major Storm please". 4. Leave a post-it note on their desk with the name Myra Mains and the number to the local mortuary. When they return the call, typically the first thing out of their mouth is "My remains please".

Hey! I have a couple for ya! Take some clear saran wrap and put over the top of the bowl on the commode. Keep all the wrinkles out and it will dissapear from view until they go to take a leak or dump! Also you can take clear tape and cover the holes on the phone reciever and watch the yelling start. Tools? spray the tools with wd-40 or similar and cover them generously with saw dust. Nasty stuff to get rid of!

This one's really only good in the computer field, and even then only good on people who travel a lot with laptops... There's a program called BootXP, which allows you to change the boot screen for WindowsXP. Instead of saying "Starting WindowsXP" with that little scrolling bar, you can change it to be whatever you want... ...like, for instance. "Bomb Initializing". With that little scrolly bar on the bottom moving all the while. Around here (Newark, JFK, LaGuardia), they make you take out all laptops, and boot them up while they look on, while going through the security checks..

Is nothing sacred? Certain things MUST be placed off limits. Tools, cars and girlfriends are untouchable in my book... Unless the target is a real jackass. But if you touch my tools/car/woman you will die a slow, agonizing, painful death.

There's a reason my nick is what it is [;)] What's worse is the guy I was about to do it to was about to catch a flight... ...to Israel. I wound up telling him what I was about to do, mainly cause...hell, I felt bad, even if it WAS a perfect prank (and besides, he might have fired me). He laughed for a second, and then did the math...not only would they check it at JFK, but also in Israel..and that woulda spelt doom for him. I can just imagine his face, though, had I actually done it, when he went to boot it up. Oh man...I'd wanna be there to see it.

More packing peanuts....this time, stuff the victim's car completely full of them. Get them in through any window that's cracked for ventilation purposes. Some of what you guys are suggesting could land you in trouble with the law because what you are suggesting definitely crosses the line between a practical joke and vandalism, sometimes with public health issues added. If you're extremely upset with someone and you want to GET HIM, obtain a few drops of methyl mercaptan. Put it in his car or workspace. It's the stuff added to natural gas that makes it smell. Natural gas by itself is odorless. Mercaptan is added to natural gas at the rate of a few parts per million, and the resulting smell is fairly strong. The stench of the pure stuff is so powerful that you're unlikely to receive a dangerous dose of it. You'll claw through a brick wall trying to get away from it. There is a term associated with the stuff known as "olfactory fatigue". It means nose overload. Beyond a certain concentration, you can't tell any difference because your nose is screaming at you already. CJ

Thanks for the help you guys are great. Today I started the day by removing the ham egg and cheese from his croissanwich, super glued all the zippers on his lunch bag with cell phone inside and then had someone call while I was with him,put limbuger cheese on the motor of his truck and in the front hub caps 1/4 lb total then I smeared grease on the underside of the wiper blades and under the tailgate handle and yes I turned the wipers on.

One time we got a small bag of pork rinds and put 3 or 4 of those locacust casings in there. You know the bugs carcass things you find half way up a tree. Well our lunch mooch started munching away at the break room table and you should have seen the face he made when he poped one of them in his mouth! By the way be sure to pull off the legs first.

My dad did that to his brother on his wedding day. Dad said that his brother and new bride made it about 30 miles before they couldn't stand it any more. They washed the engine off and continues on there honeymoon. They never could get the smell of that cheese out of the car though. Uncle said they couldn't even sell it cheap, they had to scrap it.
