1. People who like the fly one should read the short story “Licked” by Paul Jennings (very famous author among immature Australian males). Let’s just say it takes the same idea a little further…

      It’s included in the book “Unbearable“, which you can search for yourself. Or for more immediate gratification, I found a copy here (ignore the red bits that some graffitist has added).

    2. If I were a book salesman, surely I would have linked to a bookseller’s website and not a downloadable transcript of the chapter. 🙂

      No, it’s simply a book I enjoyed as a child, and the first thing I thought of when I saw the fly joke.

  1. I have done the thread one before but after a few inches of thread I had the other end in a tiny baggie with fake blood in it tacked inside my shirt so that after they pull out a little they come to bloody thread. It is hilarious.

  2. The toilet paper one is just plain evil. But I’m pulling the thread one on my wife next time I get a chance.

  3. For the first time ever I’m going to suggest our next meal out is at a fizzypop and stodge joint, I can’t wait to get creative with the ketchup!

  4. I’ve seen toilet paper like that many times, and I always just fix it. It never occurred to me that someone might be playing a joke though!

  5. Thanks for sharing. My “card player” friends will freak out on the Fly…which I will try on our next card game.

    Also, the thread on the shirt would be fun to try out….but I will need to find a special person to try out the Water Bottle joke (maybe during a party).

  6. The ketchup ‘trick’ is a little irresponsible if your ‘friend’ happens to have Coeliac Disease (1 in 130 people in the UK have this). You could render them immobile for a week doing that!

  7. Oh, thanks for sharing these, Richard: brilliant stuff! 🙂 I’ve tried some similar tricks to some of these and will gladly add some of these in the future. Difficult to pick a favourite, but probably the one with the holes in the bottle has the edge, as it has that delightful element of delayed response and anticipation to it 🙂 Thanks for sharing some delightfully mischievous inspiration 😀 Such a shame that, due to laws of political correctness, April Fool’s Day has been cancelled this year….

  8. I love the thread one, especially if you can get someone to start removing the thread without any prompting.

  9. i live in singapore & i love jokes & ppl with a sense of humor! thank you for sharing ur videos & the funny jokes.

  10. The thread one might work better with the thread on your back, so someone will try to be helpful since you can’t see it yourself…

  11. I love the wallpaper one, I think I may have to do it the next time I go round my mum’s. When she gets upset I’ll just tell her a professor made me do it

  12. Every weekend i used to go to see this web page, because i wish for
    enjoyment, for the reason that this this web site conations in fact good funny material too.
