What's the best practical joke you've ever pulled on someone?

When I was in college, we took an instructor's car (Geo Metro), put it on pallets, wrapped it in cardboard, shrink-wrapped it, and spray-painted "Return to Japan" on the side. Then we took a group picture in front of it, and put the picture in an envelope marked "Do not open until after graduation". It was sort of a tradition to play a practical joke on that particular instructor before graduation. It was also tradition to undo what you've done afterwards, of course.

    LOL......I can so relate. It was always a tradition in high school for the senior class to pull pranks in school. Some we easily got away with. Others? Not so much.

    The most brilliant one came in the form of us generously baking chocolate brownies and putting them in the teacher's lounge on a beautiful silver platter for the teachers. Oh......did I mention we put chocolate Ex-Lax in the batter? yes..........yes yes yes. The only draw back.......this was NOT a prank were we ever found out the results. The fun came in just IMAGING what happened. *cough*

    The prank that did NOT work out? Uhm......letting three chickens loose in the library. They seriously freaked out. Uhm.......the chickens I mean. Not the librarians. They were running around (heads still intact even) and squawking like made and running and 'semi flying' onto the tables and in peoples hair and everyone was squealing and feathers were flying and kids were running and chasing them and well.............as comical as it sounds.......well the chickens all died. And well.......uhm....that was so not part of the plan. *sigh*

    The greasers of our class went a bit further. They actually poured purple paint on the asst. principal's car. Uhm......no shrink wrap. Right on the car. We all knew something was up when in between classes we saw the man storming out the side door with a look of panic on his face. I'm not sure if he was more upset about his car or his leisure suit being ruining as he desperately tried to wipe off the paint. *cough*

    Well, Chipmunk Dude, I haven't done anything that elaborate, but me and the supervisor at a shop I worked in used to play tricks on the Trainee, we asked her to get a tin of tartan paint and a left handed screwdriver amongst other things.

    Oh, did you know they've taken the word gullible out of the dictionary? ;)
