What are your personal favorite April Fool's Day jokes/pranks?
One I pulled: When working in a hospital a few years back, my boss (the head of hospital social services) had a pager for contacting him in emergencies. So, on April 1, I dialed his pager number, and entered the number of the local strip club as the return number.

A nurse friend of mine was present when he called the strip club number. My boss was silent for a momenet, then said "Sorry, wrong number," and hung up the phone. Then he roared with laughter and said, "I know who did THAT!"

1. When I was head teacher at a branch cram school in Taipei
I called up the main head teacher and told him that none of the teachers showed up for class. I waited until he had lined up several teachers before springing the April fools line on him.

2. There was a supervisor at work who no one could stand
a friend of one of the employees called her up and pretended to be a worker from the local STD clinic. He told her that she had been named as a "contact" by one of their patients and she needed to come in for testing. I'm not sure if she ever caught on or if she went for testing.

3. I had an otherwise really sweet friend in high school who would call people's phones
(This was in the late '60's, in a small town, keep in mind) and tell them he was a lineman who was up on a pole and needed to run a very high voltage through the line to test it. He said that this might cause their phone to ring, but that they should not answer it under ANY circumstances, because it might cause him to receive an electrical shock. Then he would hang up and dial the number back. And let it ring. He was the most patient person I've ever seen; he'd let it go on and on until eventually, often, someone would pick it up, and he'd shriek "AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!"

4. I pulled a dandy, based on an episode of MASH.
Had my former neighbor locked up tight in her apartment, scared shitless of me all day.

And I didn't do anything.

5. When my nieces were young teens and were visiting me,
I woke up, went to the bathroom. They had put Saran Wrap on the toilet under the seat. I go to kick their butts, and they have Vasolined the door knob. Then when I get out of the bathroom, I go to the kitchen for badly needed coffee. I pour coffee, put sugar in it, and take a nice swig----of coffee with salt in it.

That was the worst April Fool's Day of my life. But I will never forget it.

7. Announced my weekend wedding one Monday morning at my office....
I was 26 (not openly gay but I didn't date girls either) and everyone fell for it. Gave lots of details and everyone was gushing. Her name-April, April Anne Fool. I ate lunch alone that day.
