April Fool's Day is around the corner, which means I'm prepared to spend the entire day with my office door shut, ignoring the hijinks of the outside world. The thing is, I'm gullible. Like, really gullible. You tell me the moon is going to be purple tonight, and I'll be the one standing in my backyard waiting for it to happen. But sometimes, even the most gullible of us need a way to get in on the fun. Before anyone in your office can prank you, check out these office friendly April Fool's Day pranks that you can easily perform alone, or with a colleague.
Whether you're looking for something simple and effective, or you're more interested in something elaborate (like everyone's favorite item in Jello a la The Office), there's a prank ready for you to serve up and surprise everyone. The most important part of any prank is you and your straight face. Many of these hilarious hijinks rely on you to keep the ruse going. So start practicing your poker face in the mirror, friends. You're going to need it to deny all once you get the office rolling in the right direction. If you're already known as the office prankster? Simply sit at your desk with a smirk on your face all day. It'll drive people nuts.
