You cant do any of the good ones anymore thanks to leechy lawyers.
Aside form the standard popcorn wall on apartment doors, which for those who dont knot this ancient one.
is when you tape newspaper across the molding outside of the door tighly so it forms a sealed paper wall and leaves a 3-4 inch gap between the paper and the door, the you fill the enitre space with a wall of popcorn, so when the door opens in.....you get it.
In college we took a super jumbo jug of wesson vegetable oil and mopped all the vinyl floors of the 1st and second floor dorm hallways at 4am.
You ended up with 2 long halls about 100 feet each that nancy kerrigan coudnt walk down without slipping.
I think about 1 month passed before you could walk down that hall without golding onto the walls.
And for a non friend who had the dorm right across from the laundrywe disconnected the water valve from the back of a washer and extended it with beer funnel hose to the crack under his door, put in our 75 cents and left.
Spin cycle was about 14 minutes away. Saw him mopping later that day, dont know what else happened.
I can't really participate in April Fool's Day anymore.
It was part of the plea bargain...

we pulled on garrett that used to work here that was pretty awesome. at the time, garret was covering the search engine industry pretty exclusively and because of that he used Google a great deal.
well, we set-up a fake page that said Google was blocking that particular computer from accessing their homepage (i think we had a post about this a couple of years ago...) for whatever violation we could think of at that time. then we had Jay, our SysAdmin, set garrett's computer up to bring this fake page (complete with a google logo) every time garrett tried to navigate to Google.com.
garrett wasn't too pleased about that one (especially at first). but we loved it. :)

Take a screenshot of someones desktop...
Set that as their background/wallpaper...
Hide all of their icons in a folder out of view...
Pretty funny joke to play on someone... even better if you can watch the reaction.

There was a radio station in KunKuna Wisconsin. Hope that is spelled right. That played the song
Dead Skunk In The Middle of The Road
24 hours. All day. They would announce a song and play this song over and over again. People were calling in saying all kinds of things. The DJ's were all in it and continued to play this song. Well one listen got so mad at them that he threw a dead skunk in there drive way. The bad thing on this is, he got caught was fined and the radio station, doing there duty, put his name on the air for this crime.
When I listed to the station at the time I thought something was wrong, but after a while I figured out what they were doing and had fun listing to the ones that called in to complain about this. All the DJ's would say is that it was something wrong with the equipment and that they were wroking on it.
