Ok, guys, girls, and assorted animals, minerals, and veggies...As April Fool's comes closer, I would like all of you, or those of you who actually stop by the Alley, to relate any pranks you have pulled in honor of the special and most sacred of days to the Motley Foole.

Here's one...not my best...

One year (when I was married), I taped strips of toilet paper from the ceiling in the bathroom, and as the 'old man' came in after work in the middle of the night, he was so busy pulling them off, fighting his way to the 'throne'...that he failed to see the copious amounts of shaving cream I had squirted on the toilet seat!

Well, ah reckon the evilist thing ah ever did to a poor soul happened many years ago.

A friend had gotten completely drunk...out cold.  So some friends of mine and I snuck into his house, on April 1, early in the morning, with shaving cream, mayonaise, and a cucumber.

I can't go into details, since this is not the Adult Forum *snicker*, but when he woke, we heard his screams of shock and outrage next door, where we were hiding out and trying not to laugh...at the pictures we had taken.

I think the worst thing we ever did was at a party in 1979. April 1st is a friend's birthday and we all being into motorcycles etc. went to the local biker bar. We met this kinda geeky guy, button down type with very thick bottom bottle glasses ya know. Anyway, after we got done drag racing off the pool table and tearing up the girl shaped, bikini clad birthday cake amongst other things we all went to the birthday boy's house to continue the party. Everyone was invited including the newbie geeky guy. At about 3 am the party was in full swing but the geeky guy passed out on the couch. We decided to mess with him and took off his shirt and used magic markers to paint two bullseyes on his chest and somebody painted his glasses black and left them on his face. He was there till about 7 am. Most people were asleep by then but a friend and I stayed awake and my friend went to the store to get a toy dart gun with the suction cup darts. When she got back we were taking potshots at his bulleyes to see who could hit the centers(I know we had a mean streak in them days). Anyway he woke up howling and then he started bawling. We couldn't figure out why he was crying. We asked him what was wrong and he was convinced that he was blind. He didn't realize we had painted his glasses. Anyway I don't know who was more scared, him or us, but we never did anything like that again. After it was all over and we got his glasses cleaned up and got him dressed again he thought it was funny and felt accepted by us dregs of society. Now he's the group's lawyer and a good friend.

ALASTAIR!  Bad KITTY!!  (ROFL) I cannot believe you never told me about this little endeavor...funny what can trigger a memory, eh?  

I'll have to give this one some thought, and see if I can remember any evil deeds.

I can only relate the best AFJ I've heard - one that my paternal grandmother pulled a long time ago, when it was common for folk to "drop on by" at any given time.

They had a "friend" who made it a habit of "dropping in" on Sunday mornings along about the time my grandmother was putting breakfast on the table.  Apparently she was well known for her cooking!  Sundays were usually "Pancake mornings" and according to my father, she made some good ones!  [If my Dad had her recipe, believe me, your mouths are drooling now!  I digress.]

Anyway, sure as shooting this April 1st morning, and a Sunday to be sure, the gentleman in question strolled in to my grandmother's kitchen, expecting the usual courtesy of being asked to partake of breakfast.  

Grandmother'd about had it with their friendly freeloader and she decided, then and there, to "fix his wagon."  She started putting the cakes on the griddle, but as she figured the night before that he would indeed show up, she was ready for him.  She had taken grocer-paper sacks and had cut a number of circles out of them, say, about the size of a good plated pancake.  She made sure that in the gentleman's stack, he would have pancakes made with the paper circles in the middle.  

Cut as he might, he finally got a piece of pancaked paper in his mouth, but it was not the fluffy 'cakes he was used to!!!  Needless to say, he didn't show up anymore on Sundays!

********

I personally haven't pulled any memorable April Fools pranks, but if anyone needs to throw their spouse a "surprise party" I've got a great one for you to try!!!

LOL these are all very good ! Unfortunately I have no April first story for you, but a true story is acceptable too I hope.  

I must have been 14 and my brother 10. He was the kind of guy who'd do anything to get some easy money from you. Whine, nag, keep your secret if you paid him enough. Yeah a terrible guy. LOL One day I offered him $10 if he'd allow me to break two raw eggs on his head. Of course $ signs appeared in his eyes and eager to earn some easy money he immediately said yes. LOL No need to say I only broke one egg on his head.

April Fool jokes should never be restricted to one day of the year.

About a year after I moved to California, my oldest sister and her husband came to visit. We had a very typical Midwest, small city upbringing, and Nancy had never been out of Michigan. The first place I took my just-turned-21 sister was a topless bar. She was the only female customer in the otherwise very busy establishment. Worse, I talked one of the waitresses into "convincing" my sister she should try her hand on stage. Nancy, now 42, still blushes when I tell the story.

It wasn't long after that my wife's mother and step-father came for a visit. Don was a good friend long before I introduced him to my mother-in-law, and we were old-time drinking buddies in spite of the difference in our ages. He was a bit more worldly than my sister, but still a product of both the Midwest and his generation. I took him to a gay bar.
