    My ex-husband (we were married at the time) got up early and moved my new BMW down the street, ran into the bedroom, woke me up and announced that my car had been stolen. :devil: :devil: :devil:

    It wasn't funny. :grumpy:

    I think April Fool's jokes are a bit childish.

    In Australia and New Zealand if you play an April Fools day prank past noon on April 1st, shame on you, you're an idiot.

    I find that mildly entertaining.

    Typical behaviour of a slime mold, in my opinion.

    LOL I love the ones they do in the newspapers
    This year, our local one did an article on the newly discovered viking settlement in a nearby small town :rofl: :biggrin:
    My dad read through half of it before realizing it. When I looked at it, I had a feeling something was up so I skipped to the last paragraph where it revealed it's prankfullness. :biggrin:

    This is where you have to learn the appropriate timing to ensure it stays funny and doesn't go too far. Letting him drive 20 min out of the way, and then have to drive 20 min back when he was on the way to work is a good way to just piss someone off. Something like that shouldn't go more than 2-5 min before you clue him in if he didn't figure out it was April Fools on his own.

    It's no fun...today is Saturday, so I can't get anyone in the lab for April Fools. Besides, we have one person in the lab who has NO sense of humor, so as tempting as it would be for us to prank her, it would end up causing more trouble than fun in the end. :grumpy:

    Go in there and spill some water onto her.

    Can't you tell someone to go to the lab?????
