Tips For Successful Pranks
Tips For Successful Pranks
It takes wit, humor, skills, understanding of human
reactions and practice to be a master prankster and a practical joker.
Here are some tips that will help you to fool and hoax people
successfully on April Fool's Day and see their flushed faces as their
reactions change from being shocked or stunned to being embarrassed and
then to a roaring laughter or a funny smile.
- Improvisations help enhance a prank by various degrees. Using
ketchup or tomato sauce as blood can even be enhanced a little more
if you use thick tomato gravy to make blood clots at a place or two.
Give life to a plastic lizard by tying it with an invisible string
and make it jump on the victim suddenly. You can also place a
plastic bug inside some dish and if the restaurant manager is the
victim, you can brawl and complain as much as you like. Improvise on
the gluing the penny to the floor by cutting the penny in half using
cutco scissors and keep the other half. Just see how many people try
to pick even this half penny up.
- Distractions of the victim help a lot while you are working on
your pranks. While the person is busy with something, make someone
who is masked ring the bell and attack the victim with the
artificial knife whose blade pushes inside as soon as it touches
something. Don't try this on a person with a weak heart. Ask a
friend to give a ring to the victim's telephone and engage him an
exciting and interesting conversation. Arrange a plastic skeleton at
his side facing him and watch him being shocked from the sudden
appearance of the ghost.
- Be accompanied by your friends and disciples to assist you. Not
only they are of great help as the one to distract, they can also be
of help and at least call the police, if something goes awry and you
need to escape of even face the butt ends of your pranks.
- A master is always known by its resourcefulness and readiness. Be
always ready to play a prank and catch your friends. The pen that
gives you a slight shock as soon as one removes the cap can always
be kept in your breast pocket. Fake rubber or funny-tasting candies
can be casually distributed to any number of people you like while
the onion juice in a fancy small perfume bottle can easily fit into
your pocket. A small ketchup pouch can help you produce the effect
of the spilled blood wherever and whenever you like and pushback
artificial knife can shock anyone at anytime.
- The right prank for the right person is the trick of the trade. A
fake car scratch or broken glass tattoo is good for people who love
their cars. Place a transparent plastic sheet on one's favorite
carpet or book and drop gravy or ink on it. Foods that look
delicious and taste funny are meant for those who can't themselves
from tasting just a bit of everything that looks good and edible.
- No one can become a master without a real interest at perfection.
So, if you really want to become a master prankster, leave no way of
escape for your victim. You may even want to watch Home Alone Part 1
for the idea of what I am talking about. Place a number of pranks at
a number of places for the victim, so that once targeted by you,
they cannot escape. Placing the tube of shaving cream with the
toothbrush of the sleepy friend can be put in combo with a face soap
that makes you dirty in the soap box the towel that is clean outside
but has powdered color inside.
- Good planning and careful study of the victim's schedule and mode
of behavior always help in deploying successful pranks. You may need
to lay a trap for the victim days in advance so that he/she won't
suspect a thing on the intended day. One good prank is to carefully
note the time when the victim normally uses his bathroom first time
in the morning. Then place a transparent plastic sheet over his/her
toilet tile a little before that or after the victim finally falls
asleep in the night. Let down the toilet seat. Don't forget to
capture a photograph of their expression when they come out.
- Learn to control the excitement to get a hand at your victim to
avoid blowing the cover of your state-of-the-art prank that you have
placed for them. Try not to rush them or force them to do a thing or
try something just because you are eager to see the result for if
they smell the rat, all your efforts will get wasted.
- Two or more jokes combined together heighten the effect.
Much-awaited letter delivered to the victim's home early in the
morning by their beloved fetching an appointment, fake snakes and
plastic spiders in their cereal box and wallet/purse, credit and
debit cards replaced by thick plastic sheet board of the same size,
keys replaced with another set that looks same but cannot open the
locks, onion juice in the perfume bottle and soap water in the milk
bottle early in the morning are just the perfect ways to start
pranking on the April Fool's Day.
- Use your skills of acting and learn to keep a straight face while
you pull off pranks. You have to make people believe in you to be a
master. If you are entering the classroom with a fake black eye
wound and a cast on, be sure to limp a little and groan from time to
