Are you prepared for April Fools’ Day?

Jokesters will be out in full force today, and Parade Magazine has simple gags you should look out for – OR add to your arsenal before you become a trickster’s target!

  • Change the unsuspecting person’s cell phone settings from English to another language.
  • Replace the cream filling of Oreos with toothpaste, then invite your target for a snack!
  • Switch your friend’s cell phone background image to a photo of cracked glass.
  • On Facebook, change your birthday to April 1st, and watch and laugh as the “well wishes” start rolling in.
  • Take a screenshot of your coworker’s computer desktop, and set it as the background. Hide all of the desktop icons and watch as she struggles with the “frozen” screen.
  • Post a sign on the office copy machine that says, “This copier is now voice-activated.”

The morning show does not suggest you go out doing these pranks (unless you somehow get Mr. G with one!).
