    I haven't tried any yet but I read about a good one for computers-- press ctrl-alt-down arrow. To fix it, press ctrl-atl-up arrow. Not sure if this works on Macs but it does on PCs!

      I'm not big into April Fools jokes. They did announce to the students at the elementary school I work at that Governor has decided to extend school one week into the summer.

      Sadly, I was too sleepy and lazy. My poor husband, no good tricks.
      However my parents always crack me up!
      First, my mom has stuffed the tips of our shoes with toilet paper since i can't even remember how long! It's so funny. You put on your shoes and they suddenly don't fit and then you remember it's April fools. That's always a good one.
      Then her new trick is in the kitchen. They have a sink with a detached sprayer thing. So she takes clear tape or a rubber band and she tapes down the trigger. So in the morning when my dad turns the water on, the sprayer gets him SOAKED! it's hilarious!!!

      And then my dad's trick on my mom was the stuffed shoes (it's just tradition at this point). But then he went out to her car. He opened the back windows just a little so it'd be annoying on the way into work. He turned the radio all the way up, he turned the wiper blades on high, and he moved her car seat all the way forward.

      They crack me up!

        Stuffing the shoes is a cute tradition!

        I don't plan on playing any jokes on people - - unless of course someone has a really good one for me to use.

        I did just overhear the guy behind me on the phone with his daughter who told him she was in a wreck on the way to school and totalled the car.....she explained what happened for like 5 minutes then told him april fools. haha! poor guy!!

        Love the shoe stuffing tradition! Great idea! It sounds like your parents are super cute and funny still! So adorable!

        I've got nothing planned and I'm hoping no one plays any one me!! LOL

        we do the ctrl+alt+arrow trick at work all the time to newbies :) its hilarious!

        and yesterday we had a new Lead being trained and her trainer called and told her she needed to get to the plane fast because someone pooped all over their seat, she totally raced out there thinking she had to do something about it. i guess it was an early joke :)

        lisa, omg if i were that dad i would put my daughter on car restriction for a month!

        trisha, the kids always do the sprayer one to doug, and he falls for it every time. they arent with us today so maybe i will do that to him. he might get grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr tho

          Heehee... I pulled this one last year. I got up in the morning for work, and just as I was leaving I said "Mark, did you get a drive home from work last night?" He said "No, why?" I said "Well, where is the truck then?" He was like huh? Then he is flying to the door... then I said "April Fool's" heehee.
