We all love a good prank, and sometimes office pranks can be the most hilarious. Livening up one of many dull days in the office with a well thought out prank can be key to cheering everyone one up; apart from the person on the receiving end of course. Some people, however, opt to take the simple tomfoolery a step further by integrating careful planning and precision. These are definitely what would be considered the more evil of pranks. So carry on reading for some immense ideas and inspiration for pulling off your own shenanigans. Just be sure that whoever you’re pranking can take a joke!
This is something you can easily do yourself in a couple of seconds. If you use Bluetooth powered keyboards or mice in your office, try swapping two of your colleague’s around. They will be confused and befuddled as they try to work out why theirs isn’t working, as well as why someone else’s words are popping up on their screen! This pranks won’t last long (it’s pretty quick to figure out) but it’s hilarious while it lasts!
This takes time but can be a doozy! When someone’s birthday comes around get your fellow colleagues to help gift-wrap everything in their office or desk area. The result will be them having to unwrap at least ten “presents” before they can ever get down to work.

Don’t know anyone with a birthday coming up? No worries. You don’t need an excuse to wrap someone possessions up, just do it! News Papers make a great choice, and they’re so easy to pick up on your way to work too!

If you work in booths, why not try filling a colleagues up with hundreds of balloons. You’ll need to get in early to blow them up, but just imagine the look on the victim’s face when they realise all the popping they’ll have to do!
Tap into their pet hates
True story: This office decided to take revenge on a co-workerwho had departed for a long 2 week holiday during a busy month. Knowing how much he hates all things girly, his workmates decorated his office in pink wallpaper, Disney Princess photos, curly ribbon and girly memorabilia. We’d love to have seen his face!
Have the time to fill your co-workers office with cups? Watch this videoand see if you have the time to do something this evil. Even more points if you fill the cups up… but that could get messy!

If you’ve ever watched The Office (UK) you’ll be familiar with the “jelly stapler” prank. This is a great one for those who want optimum laughs but minimal effort. You could trap whatever you want in the jelly – a stapler, folder, and even a printer! The limit is as big as your imagination… and amount of jelly at hand.
Post-It notes are every prankster’s best friend. Now there’s two ways you can go with one – you could cover the entire office with post-its, or you could simply label everything in the entire office with its own little post-it note. They’re not just for passive aggressive notes about finding out who used your mug!
Crime Scene Cubicle
Make your co-workers cubicle or desk into a crime scene – this means sectioning it off with police tape (which you can find on eBay) and going a step further with a chalk outline of the dead body. Go wild, but perhaps inform your boss first.
If you can (and if it’s plausible) you can move your co-workers entire desk and office-area into the toilet. Using the toilet seat instead of a desk chair of course!
