Is a prank objectionable when you’ve done it for the other persons’ benefit and they find it just as, if not more so, funny as you do?

I have had terrible experiences on that stupid day. It is to the point that the day before is almost like preparing for an emergency. I go get whatever I need from the store or anywhere else and I do not leave home. I save a vacation day and have it marked in advance just to avoid it. If someone calls I do not believe what they tell me. I make sure that the car is locked in the garage as to keep them from removing my lug nuts or both of my headlights and I remove my mailbox and bring it indoors along with all my garden ornaments and walkway lights. I keep the blackout curtains closed and stay in one room that most oftentimes I would never be in just in case someone wants to do another prank of pretending to break into my house will not have easy access to the window I normally would be near. I keep wear headphones so the wound of repeating firecrackers in a can cannot be heard nor keep me up all night. I make sure the day before that no one I know in my family is sick. I had a grandfather who died 3 times all on April 1st while in ill health to begin with just to find out he was alive later on and then die soon after. A few days ahead of April first I check and count all the daily pills that I have to take and make sure of the correct marking because they know I prepare for this. I will only eat food that is made with ingredients that I bout the night before and remove the rest from my house. I put small pieces of paper in places in each door frame just in case someone decides to come in and hide overnight (this has happened). I turn off all of my internet service and suspend my social media accounts so that I cannot be tagged. I put a lock on my meter head instead of just the light and power's anti tampering mechanism. I make sure to call the police in case someone shows up at my door claiming to be the police and threatening a raid even if there is in fact a car that looks like a police car outside and men dressed in gear because they have tactical style airsoft gear that they wear. I know this sounds extreme but there is a completely legitimate reason for each and every one of these things that I do because something has happened before and continues to happen well after I stop talking to the person.

I played a prank on my friend. I'm living in Ireland rn. My friend is in America. So, I set up a craigslist add with my friends number as a casting call for a person to play Chewbacca in a fan remake of star wars. I put that the auditions were over phone and for them to make the Chewbacca noise and I'll get back to you.

It is a culture backlash, maybe it is on english speaking countries, or maybe north of the hemisphere. but a lot of countries do not do april fools days. not only that, maybe we mascarade as the saint innocents day because even could not grasp the fact of practical jokes. because it is considered vandalism and it is prohibit. so there is no april fools in argentina, nor most countries of south america. and if you do some hard weird shit you get a war.

I installed a self-programmed fake-virus on the Laptop of my Mom and my sister. While my mother has need help a few days before I it placed on the system. The Fake-Virus has a timer and only starts on the 1st April. It was a program which blocked the windows desktop GUI, with a fullscreen error/ransomware message after you sign in. Of course it is completely harmless and can be closed with alt + f4 but people with almost none tech experience get really scared by by this. Now I feel like being a dick. I dont want to be a dick :(

I think pranks can be funny, but only if they are harmless and don't embarrass the victim. For example, swapping your glasses for somebody else's glasses and seeing how long it takes them to realize that they're wearing your glasses is funny if you can keep a straight face and it is harmless. Some pranks, however, are dangerous and/or humiliating and people should stop doing that.

What is it you are asking me to do? I already said "That was a dickish thing to do" I already said "Would I lie to you?" I already said "Blame it on Robin, that's what she's here for" I already said "He said 'I want you to show me your pussy' " I already said "It's decorative and functional at the same time" I would like you to have asked me if you had permission to use my ideas. And where is my settlement money? And the longer you keep dragging this on, the more money accumulates and interest accumulates and compounds plus interest on top of principal and I don't want to keep doing your job anymore. Pay me. I have already done your job. I have already done everybody else's jobs as well. I have already gone above and beyond what was required of me to do. And I have already paid you back for my education and then some. I'm done, I've had it, I'm out, I don't trust anyone or anything. But if you think I am lonely and will do anything you ask me to do, I say to you "Bring me some more cake, or get out of my face." I asked for one thing and was offered everything under the sun to try and distract me. Now I don't give a shit about whatever it was that I asked for in the first place and I am wearing my shirt "I really don't care, do you?" I will never run out of ideas so I will never be bored and I will always be happy with myself even if I have to live in a refrigerator box for the rest of my life, I can make it look amazing. I want you to give me what I ask for and start speaking the English language if you know how to understand how language works. Or have you forgotten your ABC's or FBI's or LBLGBTS. I want the truth and I want people to stop lying to me. As Jon Stewart once said "You have to be able to handle constructive criticism. That's what makes you excel at a job" I don't know who said it first and I don't care. So fuck it if you can't take a joke.

The 'prank' I imagined was doing something nice for someone, but they doubt you 'cause it's april fools day, then they're happily surprised because you actually did it. Did John Oliver just ask me to pledge to not do nice things for people?

Mr Oliver. The actuality is that what I wrote is to help Intel stop getting screwed by the apparant passoff of much information obtained by harsh information of myself. By giving them force of hand regarding nondisclosure agreements they can fight back from their injustice blackmail trap. Your videos gave me perfect opportunity. Thank You. You are a very kind graceful man. Jeff

My best April Fools day prank was back in around 2004 when I got my first color printer. I made color copies of all of our family photos, and then drew all over them. I drew mustaches and glasses and all kinds of stuff on them. Including our wedding album, and our kids baby pictures that we only had one copy of. Then I put the copies inside the picture frames, covering up the original pictures, so it looked like I had actually defaced and drawn on all of our pictures. At first my wife just thought I'd drawn on the glass on the picture frames as a joke. But then when she realized that the drawing was actually on the pictures underneath the glass, she was furious. I told her she couldn't get mad at me, because it was April Fools day and I only did it as a joke - making her think that my April Fools joke was to have actually destroyed all of our family pictures. I really thought she'd figure it out by the end of the day, but after a couple of weeks of her not figuring it out I finally clued her in. Another time I tricked her into thinking that I'd accidentally dropped a black widow spider that I'd caught in the basement in the bed were she was sleeping. That one was way more funny than I intended it, as she was sleeping naked, and went screaming out of the bedroom butt ass naked, giving her uncle an eyeful. If there are any ladies out there looking for a guy with a good sense of humor, I'm single now.

Well I wish John Oliver had explained that to me a little bit sooner. I already did the most horrific, elaborate April Fools prank I could think of 2 years ago, when I tricked Donald Trump into thinking he could actually win a presidential election... 😓 April fools 😓

This is a letter Dear John Now that you have come out I know that I have feelings for your ravishing skittles sense of humor. A man without discrimination who has desires for both ways almond joy and snickers is my kinda man. I thought about Marlin Bondo and I thought about you. I know your passions are strong and that you awaken in sweats each night in mutual desire but the Facts Deflection Agency (aka FDA) requires I should do a cleanse. Your Sexy John Oliver costume so makes me so want to come out to you but you are exComedyCentralIntelligenceAgency now your are just another Mr. Bojangles H(o)BO. and being the best of the best of the best of the best answering to the higher power big three, Mr Bojangles, your beverage of bazinga laced jail bait is not what I have is not my idea of a Fall season as John it would be seriously coffefee were substituted for Annelid because you substituted for in place of my name in Men in Black 2. I appreciate your Michael Weston continuing conviction as an ex but really John how can you satisfy me when I answer to the three higher powers. I see how much you liked sugar waterand in the sense of Men in Black 1 I would "accept your proposal" to the max but John I'm married to a good woman but the nuts in your bars that you keep close to your cute mole well they can comfort of your grief but I can still comfort you from the memories of my service with funeral coffee since my wife is the jelouse type. Your Engagement offer so tempting John especially since you like to say Dick so much but maybe we could have a "hybrid" plutonic arrangement but without interview bypass and nondisclosure FDA lets just be friends till after your suicide vest and those of the others might have been more effective without a Snowden Job but you can keep dreaming about Dick whereever Dick is but I hear there are girls there because the beatles told us about Back in The USSR. John your unrequited love shown by all of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands prophesy Signs should have lead you to not have strung me along as a Dick tease. The stones prophesized you John with I'm so hot for you but you left me wainting John Painted Black. Denial is not a river in Egypt and I get really concerned when someone will not share their bathroom with me as I do not like being where I'm not welcome. Your desires for me might become Pence'ive but I still love you John but I need to also see other people. I see ex's. Stuart and Colbert are also ex's with honorable burn notices but really John you should not call anymore but I do love you John but I do have a wife. So in April 1 reply I must not do that practical joke you fear but rather leave you kobayashi maru'nd for your own good but regarding your proposal your John Olivar I like to watch politics for my comedy and they are less likely to precure your mental illnesses past present and future way past diminishing returns but now that it is exposed to you you can heal and you can do better work. Pull yourself by your bootstraps however that is done, with an antigravity machine I guess, I know it is hard John I really really the best of the best of the best of the best sexy but really down in the pit did you really did not need me to accept your proposal because I do like limey flavors secret servers and other comedy is almost as funny as a Steve Martin wild and crazy guy concert with a demo of balloon venerial diseases showing me that the gift that keeps on giving is a good thing but is time to move on. I was so hopeful when I heard that Brennen was at ComedyCentralIntelligence I really wanted to meet one of the real McCoys saying dagnabbit but our democracy is in danger so please save it and so my peace I give you is to give you the baloons. Now who has the Clapper? Help us all and until then please dont call us we wont call you. Peace be with you John. I will be here with you in spirit. Be strong in the fake news John. Let it not be weaponized since even you admit murderous ideation. Truly you are certifiable. Try not to lose it if you can. ----''End of Dear John Letter"

My first was- I had a bouncy ball that smelled funny. I asked people to smell it and when they did I'm said, "ha ha you smelled my rubber" With this one I feel like I maybe handing matches to a kid, but man I have had judgement. I learned to make fake blood as a kid. Did I just use corn syrup? No. I searched for corn syrup that had good vescosity. Then mixed in food coloring and ground up charcoal. Poured it on me and proceeded to scream. Many were convinced. I should add as an accidental prone child I had many injuries resulting in afiches, and that's where I poured the fake blood. In basic I was shaving and nicked myself just under my jaw. Because of the shaving cream residue it looked worse than it was. I went out and started to act like I was chocking and holding my throat. It was funnier in my head.

John assuming you are at all being honest, this seems kind of hypocritical of you to do given that there was a segment where you rick rolled the audience twice, so I'm not sure I can quite agree with you at all. Although I do agree there is a difference between pranks that harm and pranks that are at worse a mild annoyance.

What happened to innocent pranks, like plastic wrapping the seats in the women's bathrooms, so when they piss, they end up sitting in their piss? Or unscrewing the tops on all the salt shakers, so if someone decides to add some salt to their meal, they end up ruining it? Or putting a can of beer in a paint shaker for so long, the person who opens it has to be hospitalized?

I didn't believe him when he said FDR created it because I know how it started. It was created by some British King (can't remember which one) because of New Year. It used to be celebrated on April 1st because pagans,but when it changed to January 1st anyone who still celebrated in April was an "April Fool"
