Maybe Don't 'Prank' Your Boyfriend By Prank Breaking Up With Him

Here's the thing about April Fools': It sucks. Pranks are all well and good when you're five years old and the only thing you can do is drool and make up some joke about being a space monster or something, but when you're an adult and try to raise the stakes, that shit gets real. Here's a tip from me to you: Never… » 4/01/15 2:30pm 4/01/15 2:30pm

John Oliver Begs America Not to Participate in April Fools' Day

April Fools' Day is a national menace. Sure, if everyone in America were as funny as they think they are, it would be a big laugh. But they're not. Oh, they are so surely not! And so Last Week Tonight host John Oliver asks that you take a solemn vow: "I will not play any practical jokes and if I see someone planning a… » 3/30/15 9:50am 3/30/15 9:50am

This Site Will Send a Glitter Bomb To Your Enemies Anywhere on Earth 

The only thing worse than all the junk mail stuffed in your mailbox is finding a card that's actually addressed to you, but is covered in mounds of glitter. The shiny stuff ends up all over your hands, your face, and your home, and it's all but impossible to clean up. So that's why a glitter bomb, courtesy of … » 1/13/15 1:18pm 1/13/15 1:18pm

This Guy Can't Help Falling for His Sister's Adorable "Selfie Prank" 

You know how sometimes you take videos when you mean to take selfies on accident and then watch them and want to die a thousand deaths as frame by frame of you getting ready to take a picture rolls by? Me neither. That's the premise of this prank, though, and this dude falls for it EVERY TIME. » 1/01/15 2:46pm 1/01/15 2:46pm

11 Conversations You Have After a Teenager Takes Over Your Tinder

A few weeks ago, I lent my smartphone to my nineteen-year-old cousin while I was getting my hair cut. I thought she would use it to download Candy Crush or play Words With Friends, but when she handed the phone back to me, she smirked and pointed to the Tinder icon. And then I heard the "bzzzz" of an incoming message. » 12/07/14 9:15pm 12/07/14 9:15pm

This Prank Should Be a Part of Every Bachelor Party

Thanks to bro folklore, movies like The Hangover, and simple observations, the association between bachelor parties and bad behavior is one that's deeply ingrained in America's cultural consciousness (yes, #notallmen, but certainly a lot of them). What we don't think of when we think of bachelor parties is prankery. » 11/18/14 4:11pm 11/18/14 4:11pm

Watch Ellen Scare Eric Stonestreet So Badly He Vows Never to Return

I have always held a suspicion that Ellen Degeneres is actually kind of evil. Like squeeing hamsters evil. She wouldn't actually kill them, but she'd squeeze them until they were uncomfortable. That's why it's not surprising that Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet has decided to boycott her forever. » 9/25/14 7:15pm 9/25/14 7:15pm

Watch The Roots Lose Their Shit Over the '50 Shades' Trailer

Everyone's buzzing about the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, because Fifty Shades isn't so much a work of fiction as a culture-wide essay prompt. Easily the best take is this bit from Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show, who filmed The Roots reacting to a remixed version—with a scary scream-y face added. » 7/30/14 11:00am 7/30/14 11:00am

​Holy Shit This Classroom April Fools Prank Is Perfect

Alright alright, I know you're over all the belated April Fools pranks and leftover videos. I don't even like April Fools Day—I basically need to keep a roll of Tums with me the whole day because my body can't handle that type of prank stress. ANYWAY, these students planned and executed a prank on their professor… » 4/06/14 3:00pm 4/06/14 3:00pm

April Fools' Day Reminder: Pranks Are the Worst

All in all, I consider myself a good time gal — not in the the slutty WWII sense (though that's fine, too! THANKS FOR SUPPORTING THE TROOPS!), but in the way that I can take a joke and generally have a good sense of humor about myself (just so long as you never ever mention the ribbon around my neck). But here's the… » 4/01/14 4:31pm 4/01/14 4:31pm
