1) Big, round, colorful vegetables are starting to grow in my wife's garden.
2) She'll be gone for the next two weekends.
3) I've got a bag of 1000 googly eyes.
Question: How can I make this prank work without ruining her harvest? [more inside]

What kind of pranks did you pull back in high school and college? Did anyone ever catch you? I'm looking for examples of interesting teenage capers, along with what happened when the authorities got involved.

I'm looking to make an April Fool's day dinner, where dinner looks like dessert. We already have the idea of a meatloaf "cake" with mashed potato icing. Do you have any ideas for side dishes that also look like dessert?

Can you please suggest simple pranks, stunts, and tricks that fall under the category of "physical challenges"? For example: Offer 2 kids a piece of newspaper, and challenge them to find a way for both to stand on the paper at the same time, without ripping it, such that neither kid is able to touch the other.

I've been loving YouMail for the past year, as a replacement for VerizonWireless' sucky voicemail, but I've only now started playing around with it's individualized greeting/"ditchmail" features. I'm looking to mess with my friends & co-workers minds using this feature. [more inside]

Does anyone know of a good computer prank I can install on my housemate's computer that will let me do funny stuff to him remotely across our network?
Nothing horrible or malicious here - just a bit of fun.

My window air conditioner smells like pee when it's on. There is a roof deck immediately above this window. We are on good terms with the tenants up there, but they have guests over pretty often. [more inside]

This happened to my girlfriend in 1987, and for years she's been telling the story as though it was a genuine mistake. The first time she told me the story, I immediately thought it was a prank. [more inside]

Ok folks, show me your whimsical side. My wife is quite a gardener and she's always out there bending down, pulling weeds, digging, etc. I thought it would be fun to occasionally stick things under the plants for her to stumble upon. Star Wars figures having tea, little elves napping, Lego construction crews, small billboards with cute signs, etc. I want to make it look like there's a little community of miniature garden people living in the dirt. I know she'd appreciate the effort. I need more ideas. [more inside]
