Our immunology professor asked us all to pull out a sheet of paper for a pop quiz. Being only our second lecture with her, we had no idea if this was normal or not. She told us that she hoped we had done our suggested reading and looked over our notes for the previous lecture (which of course I hadn't). Everyone totally fell for it, including me. I thought that my first grade of Spring quarter was going to be a big fat zero. She then told us to write on the paper A... P... R... by now we all got it, breathed a sigh of relief, and clapped. :)

One of the vets played a prank on our receptionist. She had different people call and ask for "frank" throughout the morning. Some of the people were awesome and really got her going. After about 7-10 calls for frank she had "frank" call and ask if she had his messages for him. It was funny because everyone else in the clinic was in on it except her.

Our vet and the other technician went on a site visit to examine and vaccinate 2 tigers, 4 servals, and several bird species for a magic show in the area. About 45 minutes later the tech runs in screaming asking what the doctor's wife's cell phone number is because the doctor was mauled by the tiger and being flown to the trauma center. She had us all going until the other doctor had dialed all but the last digit on the wife's number. Turns out the animal coordinator forgot she had scheduled the visit and wasn't there, so they decided to freak us out!!!

Man, the splitting up thing is so cliche. As are all pregnancies, engagements and elopements that people tell me about on April 1.

Prank hard or go home. ;)

edit: I did the woot.com adventure though.

hmmmm... I found out a couple of days ago that my brother decided to buy a house within the next couple of weeks (started house hunting a couple of weeks ago), become an American citizen, AND get married to this girl he's been dating for a few months (wedding in August). Maybe that was an early April fool's joke :confused: But knowing my bro, it's probably not... Lots of congrats I guess, but it's a bit overwhelming!

At least 10 people on my Facebook broke up while 3 got engaged.

I think one of the engagements might be real though, it kind of fits the personality of the couple. There is a picture of her with a ring, but I also know her boyfriend has photoshop so...we'll see.

One of my co-workers called her fiance from work and told him she had roundworms....She had him all the way to the point where she asked him to get one of their daughter's dirty diapers from the day care to have it tested at the dr's office. :laugh: It was hysterical.

My fav april fools joke from college was an ecology professor who gave a whole lecture on a made up critter that only existed on an island that was blown up by atomic bomb testing. The pictures were real enough that most of the class believed it until the NEXT lecture class when he let us all in on the joke.

The security guard for my building always plays jokes on me. In revenge for stealing my animal cart a month ago, i paired up with his coworker to aluminum foil his desk the night before. I'm sure everyone knows what this looks like, but heres a pic if you dont:

http://www.eyje.com/images/emimages/foil-paper-office.jpg

He comes to work around 6am, so to get me back he oiled the doorknob to my lab. But....he was off by one floor, so it wasnt my lab!! haha This asian guy came in and was cursing about not being able to open it. Luckily, when he found out if was April fools day he laughed it off.

The security guard also took revenge on this secretary. He saran wrapped her door and put "caution, do not enter, contamination". Little did he know, the Chief of our whole department has his office in a room behind the secretaries. He came in first and was completely shocked. Thank god he found it funny and laughed it off!!

It was a good day :D

My immunobiology professor was handing our tests back. He wrote the average and standard deviation on the chalk board....65%. After the whole class was thoroughly hyperventilating. He erased the 65 with an 85. And all was right with the world once again! :D

My boyfriend texted me to say that my cat had brought home a baby bald eagle and that it's barely alive. I panicked and was about to call my wildlife vet friend. He told me it's not going to make it and that I should instead call my friend from Natural Resources as I'm going to be in a lot of trouble for this. I was nearly in tears when I finally caught on.

I love this day!! I work at a 24 hr eclinic/gen practice and pranked one of the vets by making this her last apt of the night:

New pet 8 yo f rottweiler princess consuela ingested illegal substances 2 days ago **PET IS VERY AGGRESSIVE HAVE O MUZZLE before entering lobby!!!*** (O has very limited finances)

Hahaha she was soo mad and annoyed at the "receptionist" who she thought made the apt (I put a friends I initials in the comp) but then we told her it was a joke and she thought it was hilarious...I had planned on putting rain x on the whiteboard so you can't write on it but ran out of time. Also wrote a friend of mine up 3 times for mistreatment of patients and not doing
Paperwork correctly and said that this was her last warning before termination! Hehe I absolutely love planking everyone in the office! I also put the sr vets (who is sometimes a bit grumpy) uv pen lights (which he needs for eye exams bc he's color blind) in jello last night and made sure he had a check eyes apt first thing in the morning!! :D

We set up the last appointment of the day as a client who is super annoying and thinks he knows everything for this one doctor who can not stand the guy. The guy is literally insane. The appointment was because "owner has noticed that other cats in the house are drinking from another cat's water bowl and since that cat has kidney failure the owner believes all the other cats now have caught the kidney failure." "Owner is limited on funds but would like to do BW on all four cats."

Earlier this week this guy did not want to vaccinate the stray cat he brought in because, "he probably already has all the diseases anyway so what's the point" and he did not want to neuter the cat because "there is only one female cat in their neighborhood that roams around and she is spayed so he is not getting any other cats pregnant." He is a very frustrating guy to deal with.

I had a really great Facebook prank today. :p I agree that the Facebook relationship changes are WAY too common and uncreative, so I took it a step further. I got 6-8 friends involved with a prank by asking them to like or comment on a fake marriage proposal to my boyfriend that he would obviously know was a prank. Those friends, my boyfriend, and I were the only ones who could see the post. When my boyfriend finally saw the post and comments, he thought that every one of my friends that commented had fallen for a fake marriage proposal, so he played along and broke up with me on the status. My friends and I went with it until finally he told them that it was a prank, but the joke was on him. :laugh: It was one confusing mess! An April fool's prank on an April fool's prank. :smuggrin:

My roomie posted fake wrist tattoos and a story about feeling spontaneous and getting them. It was pretty believable, actually, except she would never ever do a visible tattoo like that.

Looking back, this was really mean but...
In HS, my BF at the time (the same douche I dated for 5 years) was on a bus coming home from a varsity baseball game.... I was actually scheduled for surgery that day so my mom and best friend agreed to prank him with me. I require an insane amount of anaesthesia for some reason (which he already knew) so they always have to keep an extra eye on me....
So I had my mom call him and tell him that I went into cardiac arrest and they hadn't been able to bring me back yet. My best friend called him as my mom was on the phone and when he clicked over to answer she was just balling hysterically. According to the baseball team, he completely LOST IT on the bus and was crying his eyes out in front of all of his cool baseball buddies (2 of my best friends were on the team). When he got back to his car, there was a huge "April Fools" sign on his windshield.
If you knew how badly he ruined my life, you wouldn't judge me for this :smuggrin:

Holy crap, em!!!! I had a hard time fooling my mom that I wasn't coming to dinner tonight because I felt so bad... But this is just nuts. I am 100%positive he earned that one though. Before or after the prank :)

I lack follow-through.

I hacked my mother's facebook page and changed her profile pic to a fugly shot of the Philly Phanatic. But, then I didn't have it in me to actually punk her friends. So, I added "Backseat Driving" to her profile under "favorite sports" and left it at that.

Now, I just need to get my hands on Little Sister's password before next year . . . :smuggrin:
