So yesterday I pulled an April Fool's prank on a friend of mine in which I told her that I had coughed up some blood and wasn't feel all too well (Background info: I've been sick for 4-5 weeks, I think it's only walking pneumonia which isn't that big of a deal but my friend gets all nervous about sicknesses and such).

So I text her the prank yesterday and we we're texting for about 20 minutes. Well it turns out that she got so worried that she went down to the hospital that is near by where she lives and was waiting in the waiting room for me to get there. Sensing that the prank was a success of sorts i told her that it was an April Fool's joke. she became Biblically pissed and hasn't talked to me since.

In any event I wanted to know if any other Pitters had April Fool's pranks that either went wrong or went too far.
Yes, I have done that, and it indeed, was incredible.

The face in your sig is how I imagined you posting that.

I told my little cousin who is a Spiderman fanboy that the actor of spider man died and there wouldn't be anymore spiderman movies. He got mad and broke my lamp.

Well that was pretty thoughtless, i hope she forgives you, you don't deserve it tho. Don't mess with people who care about you man.

I made my girlfriend believe that I coughed blood too, I just used a fake blood pill.
She forgot what day we were for a few minutes

Turns out she has a weird sense of humor too and wasn't mad at all.

So we can't joke with people we care about? She's one of my best bro's, thats what you're suppose to do with your mates. If the roles were reversed sure I would have had an initial reaction of anger but then I woulda laughed and said 'oh man you got me good on that one'

well no, just use a degree of caution. maybe she overreacted, but in my opinion i wouldnt do that to someone i called a friend and i wouldnt call someone a friend who did that to me. I **** with my friends all the time , i just dont make them worry about me.

So you're saying that you've never pulled a prank of this nature on any of your friends before? I mean like i said she's one of my best friends so i figured that it would go over better.

Nah I really haven't done anything like that to anybody. Never really crossed my mind.

I did the "take a screen shot of the desktop, set it as the background, and delete all the icons" prank to my dad. Hasn't used the computer yet, so
Me and my sister also swapped all of my dad's drawers. So he took about an hour getting ready in the morning because he couldnt find anything

The plastic cube broke whatever mechanism crushes the ice and it ****ed up the circuiting ahahaha.
We had to have it fixed and the electrician or whatever showed me the cube and said "you put this in there didn't you"
I felt like such a douche. I must have been 11 or something so I don't remember too much about it.

If we had limits and restrictions on the things we joke about, we would have a bunch of really unfunny jokes.

...Yeah, that was a pretty tactless prank to pull - there are exceptions, often involving severe diseases and illnesses, but generally if someone's coughing up blood, they probably have some nasty internal issue, and need immediate medical treatment or could well die. She was genuinely concerned about you, and just going "Well april fools, I'm fine so it's okay" is a pretty poor way of handling it.

this.


the only way to make it acceptable is by doing it completely over the top i think. aka make black metal noises and spit fake blood all over her face while crashing to the floor.

when you go 'april fools' then she will be like 'dammit i should have known, lets have sex'

Agreed.
Doing an April Fools joke by telling someone something that may indicate you could be dying is a piss poor attempt at humor IMO.

Doing it in person and then telling them its a joke quickly afterwards (like within 1 minute or less) may be ok, but doing it over the phone and with her going to the hospital is a total douche-bag thing to do.

If I was ever to become some big official person I would make a statement on the night before April 1st that there's an asteroid flying towards the earth and that we only have a couple of months left. Then at about 5-6pm on the 1st I would release a statement saying "April fools!!!".

So, in other-words you'd copy Family Guy...
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

I once put one of those gag exploding things in my grandmothers cigarette.

It took like ten minutes for it to go off because I stuck it way down near the filter and it was one of those tall cigs.

After it blew up in her face, which I had no idea how bad it would be, she broke a wooden spoon over my head once she caught me.

Learned my lesson.
