I told my parents one year that i was going to be in the "girls of the big 12" issue of playboy. They bought it hook line and sinker.....called a lawyer friend abotu the contract, and my mom called her bible friends to pray for me. About 6 hours later I called the house....at this time they had told nearly all of their friends ("oh my god let's tell you what the kid got herself into!") and that's when I April Fooled them. They had to call everyone back and tell them they had been duped. It turned out better than I had hoped.

yeah, this is my favorite holiday. I want to get jeff but we will both be out of town, not together, so I don't think anything will work. I'm also trying to think of something for the folks. I might tell them I made it onto the martha stewart show.

I used to work with this guy that would always play jokes on his gf. One time he switched the caps on her contact lens case.

She then took every single fuse out of his car and put them on a shelf in the garage.

Once I built up a girl to thinking I was going to get her flowers for about a month in advance. I convinced her that I didn't believe in Valentines Day to to just wait until April for a surprise. I ordered something cheap from one of those online flower places and discarded the contents of the box so I could have a nice 1-800-FLOWERS.COM box ready to go. Then I filled up the box with a bunch of dried wheat and dead grass and some other crap, and arranged it all nicely like they were actually flowers. I got a little wooden treasure chest and put in like a couple of tiny-ass fake roses, just to rub it in. I shipped the box to her and put the flower companys name and address as the return address. She was totally expecting it and was really happy when she got them. She didn't even open them right away, she brought them over to my place first (we were in dorms at the time and she was really close by). The look on her face was priceless when she opened it, I swear I could see tears welling up And even better too when she found the tiny fake roses inside. Let's just say that I received a wheat-beat-down that night

Hmm, I would have just pushed her down some stairs and hit her with a bat.
